The Windsors wish Prince Harry a happy birthday with some interesting photos

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announce their engagement

I could very easily write a thousand-word essay on the photo selections on royal social media accounts to mark someone’s birthday. There are some really fascinating choices today, for Virgo King Prince Harry’s birthday. Incidentally, I only recently understood how Peak Virgo it was for Harry to pick up and move to America. I’ve always known that Harry is a Virgo King, of course, but to pick up and tell his family “f–k you, I don’t need you, and I will carry this grudge to my grave” is a very Virgo thing. We hold grudges. We seethe quietly and plot our escape from sh-tty situations and toxic relationships, and then once we escape, we never look back. Anyway, happy birthday to Harry. First up, we have this photo selection from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge:

First of all, it’s legitimately a cute photo. It shows the brothers competing (and Harry winning), which is a little “on the nose.” It’s also an older photo, from before Harry met Meghan. It feels like: happy birthday, remember all the fun times we had before SHE arrived?

Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace chose a photo from 2017, so it was after Harry met Meghan, although she’s not in the photo. Harry is smiling down at his grandmother and it’s just a really nice pic of him. I’m surprised that BP chose this one, where you can’t see the Queen’s face.

And then Clarence House – the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall – selected two lovely photos of Harry – just a nice, smiling headshot from 2018, and an older photo of Charles and Harry laughing with one another. These are my favorites.

Chris Jackson at Getty posted this video/slideshow of some of the great photos he’s taken of Harry over the years (Jackson is one of the royals’ go-to photographers).

    Happy Birthday Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. May you be blessed with many more and may your lovely family continue to thrive.

    • Madelaine says:

      @Edna: Much needed words of kindness and appreciation. The more I look at the photograph selection, the more the obliteration of Meghan and Archie appears to me as a symbolical murder wish voodoo ritual: deliberately undiplomatic, cynically disrespectful and meticulously ruthless. The disloyal family means blood. They’re literally sending Prince Henry subliminal messages ordering him to divorce. May God Almighty protect the innocent trio Harry, Meghan and Archie.

  2. Belli says:

    And predictably and as intended, the comments are all “things were so much better before SHE came along”.

    I hope Harry is having his happiest birthday yet with his family.

    • Snazzy says:

      So interestingly when I checked a few hours ago (I was in the most boring Zoom meeting EVER), I saw that KP actually deleted a lot of the anti Meghan comments. So you had this strange situation where people were yelling at non existing comments. Don’t know if they’re still doing it though.

      EDIT: Never mind, they aren’t really editing them out anymore. At least not completely

      On BP’s Insta they kept the anti Meghan comments up for all to see ..

      • Belli says:

        That is interesting. I went on not long before this story was posted and they dominated the top comments so maybe the social media coordinator tried but got overwhelmed/tired.

      • Olenna says:

        Katie Harris at Daily Express wrote a stupid article about Sussex fans “attacking” Keen’s photo project via “comments”, like what a handful of readers have to say is real news. Needless to say, I will not be holding my breath for her article about how Keen fans attacked Meghan on Harry’s birthday.

      • Becks1 says:

        I just went and looked. Those people are really deranged. the comments are disturbing.

      • BnLurkN4eva says:

        This is one of the times when turning off comments would be appropriate in an effort to truly honor the man on his birthday. If any of the royals were getting the kind of comments that typically directed to Meghan, comments would be turned off.

      • Snazzy says:

        Ya I just went back and checked and now it’s just bonkers. Either someone started to cut the negative comments and was overwhelmed by the insanity or they were told to stop?

        Either way, agreed that this is one of those times where it’d be good to turn the comments off

      • Nic919 says:

        They created an atmosphere where people felt it was ok to post racist and misogynist comments on a birthday post about Harry. That says a lot about who they cultivate as followers.

    • CherHorowitz says:

      The first thing i thought when i saw that particular photo was that it seemed like an obvious ‘Harry ran away from us’ jibe!

  3. Alexandria says:

    Happy birthday Prince Harry! Thank you for standing up for your wife and son. Wishing you the best in love, health and life.

    He’s easy to photograph because he’s genuine.

    • Winglet Watcher says:

      This! Harry is genuine and that comes through in photos. I think how people look in photographs in candid moments shows more of their ugly or beautiful personalities.

  4. Boy says:

    I also like the Clarence House photos best but i think the Kensington palace is both a good photo and great fodder for jokes. It looks like Harry is running away from his brother and sister in law and ultimatelnmade it all the way to the California

    • StartupSpouse says:

      HAHAHA!! I didn’t see it at first and now I can’t unsee it.

      That’s so funny… because it’s true.

    • Myra says:

      It’s also very symbolic. He’s always winning and a few steps ahead of big bro. Anyways, a happy birthday to King Harry

    • Thirtynine says:

      Yes, it looks like he’s just darting to the left and will disappear out of the frame in a couple more steps. I love the photo- he looks so gleeful- but a bit disappointed Meghan was so well and truly erased. Chris Jackson had some good ones.

    • Shirley Gail says:

      Harry’s face vs Wm’s face. Wm’s facial expression is ugly. Harry’s expression is fun & joy and pleasure. Wm is trying his best, but little bro is gonna win and he’s having a hard time swallowing it. Bless his heart

    • Jules says:

      It’s hard to believe there was not some intent with the symbolism in posting this!

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      As much as I dislike William and Kate, I kind of like that they chose a photo showing Harry in a better light than the Cambridges?

      But I have to be snarky and ask, didn’t any of these people take P.E. in school? It looks like none of them ever learned how to run.

      • Tessa says:

        They were putting Harry down, that he belonged as their third wheel and should “come to his senses” and ditch Meghan which I saw as the message of that picture. I found it offensive.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      That picture says to me, Harry you better run, we are coming for you!

  5. zayragiselle says:

    it kind of rubs me the wrong way that all the pictures they chose were pre meghan…you wont convince me that wasn’t on purpose

    happy birthday H! hope M breaks your back tonight <33333

  6. Anna says:

    Very nice pics, lovley to see

  7. Lucy2 says:

    The slideshow is nice.
    I am legitimately shocked that is the photo Kensington chose, considering how weird William looks in it.

    • tee says:

      It’s SO unflattering lmao

    • ClaireB says:

      Didn’t William and Kate snap up H&M’s old social media person? I’m willing to bet working for the Cambridges feels like a step down and the employee deliberately chose a picture where Harry looked great and William looked terrible while maintaining plausible deniability. “Oh, I chose a picture of the three of you racing to celebrate Harry’s birthday. It’s a very sweet scene.” And then he choses that one.

  8. Emmlo says:

    That photo of him with Archie all bundled up in Vancouver is such a stunner. The light and both their faces are SO lovely. Happy Birthday Harry!

  9. Carol says:

    WOW. The Chris Jackson photos show just what the Windsors are losing. They are so short sighted.

    • L84Tea says:

      For real! Harry was a GIFT to that family–more charisma in his pinky finger than the rest of them put together,

    • Tiffany says:

      Agree with you Carol.

      Harry has his mother’s charm and touch, for sure.

      And Chris selected a great group of pics.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      He truly is his mother’s son in a way PWT can NEVER be (and I’m sure that eats away at Willie’s insides daily). Harry has such charisma, a genuine warmth and connection with people, it can’t be faked or forced (sorry PWT)

      Happy birthday to Harry!! May he and his happy little family thrive in whatever they choose and wherever they choose to call home. 🎂🎉🍾

    • NatureLover says:

      Yes, I watched the Chris Jackson photo series twice as they were truly lovely and captured his beautiful and kind spirit! I also posted on KP just now a very happy birthday message and the nasty comments are off the charts!! People accusing him desertion at the moment that TQ needs hi: the most, he in no longer a royal, that TQ pressured Diana to conceive the boys with lovers so that their birthright would be in question. Conspiracy theories that sound like a spinoff from Qnon, they were that ridiculous!! Many people writing that he is no longer a Prince, that he has been stripped of his birthright. I wish these people would f#ck off and leave them alone! Geezus! You would think that he strangled TQ or something!! Pathetic, pitiful and spiteful bunch!

  10. Chrissy says:

    Happy Birthday to Harry. As a fellow Virgo, he will always be the King Virgo – I bow down to the Ginger. Many Happy Returns….

  11. Sofia says:

    Happy Birthday Harry! As for the photos, I like Clarence House’s the best too but the others aren’t too bad.

  12. Seraphina says:

    A very happy birthday to Prince Henry.

    Now, that first pic is EVERYTHING! After I almost choked on my coffee laughing – all I could think was: Nooooooo, no they did not post that pic. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. And in this case maybe a great deal more.

  13. Faye says:

    I liked Chris’s slide show. The rest wish Meghan really wasn’t around, which is sad.

    • paddingtonjr says:

      I really enjoyed the slideshow as well; Chris really captured Harry’s natural ability to interact with people of different ages, races and status. Plus, Chris was the only one to include Meghan! How interesting that the Cambridges’ picked a picture that not only didn’t include Meghan but managed to include Kate…

  14. Liz says:

    It’s interesting that M isn’t in any of them, even in the background. Is it typical for the BRF social media accounts to post pictures of the birthday boy/girl that don’t include their partner? I would venture a guess to say that Kate and Camilla have a good chance of popping up in photos wishing William and PC happy birthday, but maybe I’m wrong.

    • mytwocents says:

      You can’t convince me Will and Kate didn’t do this on purpose and that they didn’t know what response they would get – the Daily Mail comments are all about how happy Harry USED to be before Meghan. I think it says a lot about Will and Kate because they could so easily have found a photo from the last years with Meghan in at least one of them. It would have made them look like they were taking the higher road, as in they have no problem with her, which they obviously felt they didn’t want to do. Another missed opportunity. (Just like for Meghan’s birthday they chose a photo without them in it, again).

      • Liz says:

        @mytwocents Agreed – no matter what they feel, including her in a photo would have been a nice show of solidarity and they (and their social media manager) know that.

      • Nic919 says:

        Kate did bitchface at a church service so we can’t expect anything but petty from them. Of course a photo without Meghan was chosen because that’s when they were able to use Harry as their tag along and then ride off his charisma.

      • Becks1 says:

        I think they knew they couldn’t use a picture of just Harry and William, they had to include Kate, or else they would have been destroyed. It says to me that someone at KP knows the general thinking on social media about William’s treatment of his brother .

      • Tessa says:

        I was horrified at the DM comments some trashed Archie!

    • Heat says:

      To be as fair as I can possibly be, if my family posts photos of me for my birthday, I really don’t expect them to post pix of my husband.

  15. RoyalBlue says:

    happy birthday to my ginger prince! chris jackson’s photos were the best.

  16. Becks1 says:

    I love the BP and Clarence House pictures – I actually think they were good choices, they show Harry smiling and happy with the Queen and with Prince Charles – its definitely sending a message of support in their own royal way. And I liked that CH picked a picture from the first Invictus.

    • Nic919 says:

      The KP photo chosen looks petty. It also shows how little they interacted with him once Meghan was around. The Clarence House photos are the best of the three. Looks like Charles was involved in choosing them and shows his PR skills are much better than the other two.

  17. Valiantly Varnished says:

    The Cambridges are so obvious it’s pathetic.

  18. TeamAwesome says:

    Sam Hussein, he of the iconic rain photo, posted the cutest one: Harry in uniform doing a slight tongue out grin.

    Anyone want to parse the usage of Prince Harry vs Duke of Sussex?

    • tee says:

      I did note that only KP used Prince Harry…

    • Faye says:

      Yeah, that was shade from the Cambridges, and Chis is tight with them,.

      • Liz says:

        It could be shady, but I also think “Prince Harry” is the more familiar way of referring to him. This could be their tight-ass, weirdo way of compromising with their social media manager, who may have wanted to soften the birthday wish and making it more brotherly.

    • Sofia says:

      I think the Queen, at one point, has called William “Prince William” after his marriage. Not trying to defend KP but if the woman who gives out the titles can’t be bothered to remember they’ve got one, I have 0 expectations that KP would remember – especially since it’s well, KP. That being said, it’s a social media post which they should have fact-checked twice before posting, so it may have very well been intentional

    • MsIam says:

      I think it’s intentional. The media has been calling on the Queen to “strip the titles “. So imo anyway both the monarch and the future monarch have answered to that.

  19. heygingersnaps says:

    A very happy, happy birthday to fellow virgo, Prince Harry!
    Live your best life and tune out the haters and toxic people.

  20. Loretta says:

    Happy Birthday Prince Harry, your mother would be so proud of you

  21. Oh says:

    ‎‏I’m really surprised why Harry was often out with W&K pre-Meghan in engagements!!.
    ‎‏Why was he not making the engagements by himself alone?? Okay, maybe everyone does not agree, but it was normal to him that he was a third wheel for W&K and he bore part of the responsibility because he allowed himself to be the third wheel. Poor Meghan who has ruined her life and soul because she married his bald ass and joined his shit family and yet crazy people are still blame her for everything

    • Faye says:

      I think he was with them because he made them interesting and KP knew that. Those other two are straight bores, bit when Harry was with them interest went up.

      • Oh says:

        Well, this means that he was okay that they were using him for interest, right ?

      • Toot says:

        I believe he was because it was for the “Crown” and Harry seems very loyal until the Crown threw his wife under the bus and he knew he had to leave for his wife and child.

    • Ginger says:

      Calm down OH. Meghan is an intelligent women and loves “his bald ass” I trust her judgment. He may come from a shitty family but I don’t blame him for that. Just like I don’t Meghan for having a shitty dad.

    • Merricat says:

      Harry’s a social creature. He worked with his brother, the ffk, and his sil because he doesn’t really have an ego about these bread and butter assignments and it was his duty to support the monarchy. Now he has someone to work with who actually shares his vision for what work (service) IS, and SHOULD be. So sure, if you like, he allowed them to use him because he wasn’t invested in his own life yet.

    • MsIam says:

      W&K and Harry had a foundation together. So it’s not surprising that they did events together too. Now if three of them were going on dates together that would be weird……

      • Oh says:

        In my opinion Harry shouldn’t have been in the foundation with his brother or any charitable work from the beginning, However he could make engagements alone without being a clown for them

    • NatureLover says:

      @ Oh, let is not forget that Harry provided support to her Laziness when Willileaks has consistently ignored her and Harry was supportive and engaging with her. When Harry met Meghan, she no longer had a confidant or a companion as Willileaks continued to ignore her. Her Laziness was angry and bitter not only that Meghan ran circles around her in regards to her philanthropy and her eagerness to hit the ground running, which she did. Meghan a proved to be a shinning star, just like Prince Harry, with charisma, a strong character and a strong woman of self worth of confidence and eagerness. All these qualities which her Laziness never possessed or cared to possess. Her Laziness was furious that she was no longer at the center and her lack of work was being played out.

  22. Snazzy says:

    What I want to know is what will Michelle Obama post?

  23. Lotta says:

    I think the message behind the first photo is ”Run Harry, run!”.

  24. PEARL GREY says:

    Harry is enjoying his blessings, a beautiful, loving wife, an adorable child that he always wanted, a new family home and an horizon of great opportunities for their future, all under the Californian sun

    Happy Birthday 🥳

  25. Imogene says:

    The picture at 00:29 in the slideshow is so handsome. He is legitimately good looking, and not just because he is a prince. If I saw him on the street (and he was not famous), I’d probably do a double take. If he were my coworker, I’d definitely have a crush. Now add to that the charisma and empathy he clearly exudes, and wow.

  26. Q says:

    I always wondered why they never use personal photos for these birthday messages? You know, from private times, never before seen regular photos from non public events?

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      When you have to make an appt with to see your grandmother through her handler, there are no casual photos of these people. I doubt this family sees each other very much. I also don’t think Cam and Charles live together or have much of a relationship, and Charles probably only does phone calls with his own sons that are awkward with long silences.

  27. Angela says:

    Am I the only one that doesn’t think it’s shady? They picked a photo of the two of them with Harry (it’s his bday) not everything is a slight to Meghan.

    Their message to Meghan on her b’day was just a picture of her.

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      Agree. And W&K look silly and not dignified so I think it was just a funny pic. JMO.

      • Liz says:

        I asked this upthread because I don’t have IG and don’t know what’s typical for these kinds of birthday messages. I can kind of see it either way. It could be totally innocent that M’s not in any of them, but I would love to be able to look back and see if Kate, Camilla, and Prince Phillip show up in photos included in their partners’ birthday posts from the other houses.

        I think, because of the tension going on right now, it would have been nice to include her in the photos to show solidarity, but I don’t know that not including her means they’re being shady.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        DH and his family are fanatical about celebrating birthdays so again JMO but I would never expect to be celebrated on his day. Now for my own birthday they ignore my existence and that used to hurt until I stopped trying to think I would ever be accepted. They also don’t acknowledge our wedding anniversaries even though we’ve had some big numbers.

    • BnLurkN4eva says:

      When people show you who they are believe them. These people have screamed who they are and I for one believe them, which is why everything they do is suspect to me.

    • Jaxonmeh says:

      Sometimes it’s just a matter of too little, too late. Regardless of the RF intent, deliberate or not, whether they realize it or not they aren’t going to bridge this with what is the absolute expected bare minimum for public consumption. Because it’s just a show for the public. To say everything is fine to us. Don’t look too hard.

      My family does similar things to me. They ignore me unless someone else is looking at their interactions with me. Their fear of looking bad publicly drives them to do certain things. Once you realize that, you temper your expectations and conduct your actions accordingly. Especially if you’re sick of the sideshow.

  28. bluemoonhorse says:

    DH is Virgo. Once you cross the line you are dead to him. He moves on and doesn’t waste a thought about you.

    • C-Shell says:

      Exactly! My late DH was the same way — it was impressive. To his credit, he made his judgments based on truth and wasn’t arbitrary at all. My favorite, of course, was when he *finally* cut his first wife totally off.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        His ego is like steel and he is very unemotional about it (whereas I would feel all guilty). I mean usually you can do all sorts of shit and he doesn’t care but I warned his boss once that he wasn’t all the nice-guy people thought he was. And boom! Boss crossed that line (tapped his work phone) and in 3 weeks the guy who no one thought would leave was gone with a new job.

        I think the biggest boom he ever did was on his own family who were trying to shut me out with all sorts of gaslighting, butter wouldn’t melt in their mouth, when he shook them to the core.

        So I know exactly where Harry is coming from about this. He is DONE. And when a man like that is DONE there is no do-overs. There is no regret. No negotiation. Harry has no regrets and I doubt he thinks about any what-ifs.

      • C-Shell says:

        In over 20 years (nowhere near long enough), I only heard DH raise his voice 3 times. Like yours, everyone thought and still think he was the nicest guy they knew, and he was, until he or someone he cared about (me, a friend) was insulted. He didn’t lose his cool, and he didn’t ghost. He told the offender exactly what he thought of their actions, and walked away never looking back. I admired that so much.

        Yep. Harry is DONE, GONE. I can’t believe these mediocre people thought otherwise. They clearly never knew Harry, really. His face at the Commonwealth ceremony was thunder and should have made it clear, if not before, but I so wish we could watch him in action at the Sussexit “negotiations”!

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        EXACTLY. This is what I’m talking about. DH appears easy-going because the everyday stuff doesn’t matter to him. He’s emotionally above it all.

        But if you come for him, or someone he loves, oh-gosh-you will be CUT to pieces with analytical and surgical precision and he DGAF about you. This is a man who has used the F word like twice in the 30 years I’ve known him. He doesn’t lose his cool often.

        And like you wrote – anyone who thinks this wasn’t Harry driving this change? They are the morons who mistook his “Mr. Nice guy persona” as someone who was a pushover. Surprise!

      • February-Pisces says:

        Virgos are very logical and intelligent. They think with their heads and not their hearts. They sometimes get a bad rep as people can think they are a bit cold because of this, but they base their judgements on logic. They are also incredibly hard working (think Beyonce) and very practical and organised. They are very picky about who they chose for a partner, and want someone who has it all (so Meghan clearly ticks every box). It’s funny cos Willie is a water sign and they are very emotional. At their best they are empathetic and warm, but a sad water sign isn’t good. Willie is driven by emotions and where as harry leads with his head, which is funny cos the press say the exact opposite. With Sussexit, all the planning and logistical side of his exit came from him, not Meghan as everyone assumes.

    • L says:

      Haha. Sounds exactly like what I screw with me or mine, you’re dead to me. I’m gone and never look back. Then again I am a Capricorn sun, Virgo rising, Scorpio moon. :)

    • L4frimaire says:

      I never really think about zodiac traits but my older daughter is a Virgo and now that I think about it, she definitely has some of these traits discussed, even at her tween age. It explains a lot, lol😏.

  29. Maevo says:

    Interesting that KP says Prince Harry and the other two say Duke of Sussex. I’m sure there’s some whacky etiquette around that and I wonder what it means!

  30. Leslie says:

    I think everyone is overthinking these photos a bit. For royal’s birthdays, the royal social media accounts try to pick a photo of the birthday person with the person whose social account it is – The Queen, Charles and Camilla, William and Kate, Duke of York when he was still a thing. Sometimes the photos they use are years and years old (I remember the Duke of York account using a photo of Kate from 2012 for a recent birthday post; the Charles + Kate photo from this year’s birthday photo was from 2014). It kind of depends on how many photos there are out there with the birthday person and the royal.

    How many times has Harry done an engagement with just William and Kate since marrying Meghan? None that I can think of off the top of my head. So it’s not shocking to see a photo from before then.

    Also, the birthday person’s spouse isn’t always in the photo chosen for the birthday post. When they post about Camilla or Sophie, they don’t usually include Charles or Edward. When they post about Charles or Edward, they don’t usually include Camilla or Sophie. Same for William and Kate – Kate wasn’t in William’s birthday photo this year, and while William was in one of Kate’s he wasn’t in the 3 others. They try for it to be the birthday person and that royal. It doesn’t always work out that way, sometimes it’s just a solo photo of the birthday person, but still.

    • Dascha says:

      “For royal’s birthdays, the royal social media accounts try to pick a photo of the birthday person with the person whose social account it is”

      KP didn’t do that with Meghan’s birthday last month, it was just her in the photo they chose. Same for Clarence House, the photo they posted for her birthday was just Meghan alone. Only Buckingham palace chose a photo for Meghan’s birthday that also included someone else, in that case the Queen.

    • Tessa says:

      They don’t have Camilla pose with Edward and Sophie. Comparable to Harry pictured with his brother and sister in law.

  31. Jessie says:

    Pretty clear Kate picked that photo, I don’t think she cares to make Will look good at this point.

  32. Suz says:

    Who cares about the symbolic pic of Harry running free from the Cambridges. Harry’s settled in Cali and not coming back. Let’s talk about the happy pic of him with Barack Obama….can Obama come back as President? K, great, thanks, bye.

  33. Merricat says:

    This is probably the happiest birthday Harry has had in years.

  34. February-Pisces says:

    Happy birthday harry! I hope he has an amazing day with spending it with his real family. 🥳

    I can see the shade in not choosing any pics with Meghan in, its real mature😒 . But I do like the pic the Keens chose, harry won that race cos he was literally trying to run away from Kate who was probably trying to flirt with him again.

  35. Meg says:

    ‘Things were much better before she came along’
    God its so relatable for me, people seeing you as simply what you can do for them, not what you need yourself and actually perceive things for you as selfish as its creating an obstacle for them. Such narcissism

  36. BnLurkN4eva says:

    Happy 36 Birthday to Prince Harry, I hope he enjoys a wonderful day with his family in sunny California and will enjoy many more.

    To see the mature and gracious way he’s moved through these last few years, makes me respect him. Happy Birthday Harry

  40. L4frimaire says:

    A big Happy Birthday to HRH Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, husband of Meghan, father of Archie Harrison. Wishing him much happiness and prosperity. Quite the year he’s had to put it mildly.I heard the KP post was a stew of anti- Meghan racist nastiness in the comments. Didn’t even go there. I hate that they had to take his birthday and still push through their nasty agenda and erasure of Meghan. Why can’t they ever even try.

    This is a damned if you do, damned if you don’t moment for everyone that isn’t The Sussexes. The rest of the family would be scrutinized no matter what photo they put up. I think Meghan is a non-entity at this point. Every Windsor would rather pretend that Meghan doesn’t exist and bury their head in the sand. They want Harry back but I doubt Meghan will ever be allowed in Elizabeth, Charles, or William’s presence again. I doubt she will ever be invited to royal family functions again because of how much animosity the British tabloids cooked up for her. The only time I can see her needing to show up is for perhaps a funeral.

  43. HeyJude says:

    OMG as someone who also comes from a f-ed up family, these guys are so needlessly nasty for picking these photos!

    Once you’re a father you should pick photos of him with his family! Especially when it’s new. These petty people.

  44. Ksweet says:

    Happy birthday to Prince Harry! You made the right and best call and I wish you and your beautiful wife and Archie (and any who come after this) all the very best.

  45. Harper says:

    Happy Birthday Harry from a fellow Virgo! Hope your first of many birthdays in the states rocks! Party by the pool? Cake and drinks and BBQ on the patio? I’m sure Meghan has a great day planned; enjoy it!

  46. ABritGuest says:

    Haven’t looked at the comments myself but saw retweets to the KP twitter bday post where people were saying the comments were awful & no wonder Harry took his family& left. Such a shame people can’t cool it with the trolling for just one day.

    I can’t imagine how Meghan feels that Harry’s family have helped engineer this hate towards her. He must be mortified too. Oh well least they can bond on how both of their families have sucky people.

      wow i don’t follow them, was it really that bad?

      • one of the Marys says:

        Yes it was bad, 100s and 100s of cruel hateful comments. Harry’s family continue to not have his back and foster a hateful environment against his wife. The man is only more and more sure he made the right decision to leave

  47. Julia K. says:

    I always try to give the benefit of a doubt but this picture is so obvious in its intent. Why is Kate in this photo? Because she chose it. It should have been just the two brothers. A thirsty grab for attention?

  48. Izzy says:

    He is literally running away from the Keenbridges LMAOOOOO

  49. Sorella says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with any of the pictures.

    Yes that is a very Virgo trait to go forward and not look back. But not looking back is not the same as not remembering. Virgos will bring up something that happened lonnnnng ago to make their point of “see i was right!!”. Like all the earth signs (Taurus and Capricorn), they never forget and even when they think they are wrong, they will NEVER ever admit to others. Virgos are very hard workers, very good to have on any team as they bring lots to a table and will work overtime to get things done. But many don’t find them easy to work alongside as they are very criticall, think others are not as smart as them and can be considered cold. And like Taurus, they can’t laugh about themselves easily (although Harry seems to be able to so he may have something else in his chart that allows that).

    Virgo and Leo Meghan are not a natural match (Virgo does well with Taurus and Caps and likely why Harry got along well with Capricorn Kate).
    Virgo being earth and Leo being fire – but they are side by side on the astro chart so they both have Virgo and Leo in them and can learn from each other – but do things VERY differently, they don’t approach things the same way at all. Leo needs to be right (Leo = lion = king of the jungle), needs you to KNOW they are right and love adoration and praise and want things done FAST (like Aries in Sagitarrius – the other fire signs, praise and fast is the moto), fire signs have little patience (why Meghan didn’t stick around as a Royal). Virgos need accuracy, more analytical and they are SLOW to move which will annoy Leo at times. They can compliment each other as they are different, but at times the Leo will make it fiesty!!

    Poor Megan was the odd one out though in their foursome as Cancer (William) and Kate the Capricorn are not natural bonded with a Leo. They would be scared of her impulsive fiery nature! Virgo too likely, but Harry loves her so that is different!

    • BnLurkN4eva says:

      Since I believe that it was Harry decision to leave, that part of your chart/theory falls apart since it’s clear Meghan merely supported him in his decision for them to walk away. I think she gave him to courage to reach that decision, but I really believe this was Harry’s decision, one he has been contemplating for a long time.

      • Feeshalori says:

        Just as an aside since I’m into astrology, there’s more to it than just your sun sign. If you do a natal chart, you’ll see you’re a compilation of the many signs in the 12 houses with your planets residing in these signs. Harry and Meghan most likely have their planets in compatible signs, elements and houses in their charts. They could also have Leo and Virgo in each other’s charts as well i.e. Virgo ascendant for Meghan, Leo ascendant for Harry. So while on the surface, those two signs may not be agreeable on paper, you really have to plunge deep interpreting the personal charts. My niece and her husband are Capricorn and Leo, like the Obamas, and that’s a power couple. And as far as l can see, their relationship is wonderful (niece and husband). I’m assuming there’s a lot of compatibility with other signs in their charts. Fascinating stuff.

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      I’m a Leo, DH is a Virgo. 30 years married and counting ;)

    • sunny says:

      I mean, I would argue the racism, harassment, and lack of support Meghan faced as a royal is why they didn’t stick around as opposed to the lack of patience on her part as a Leo…

      Anyway, I hope Harry has a fantastic birthday and enjoys living his life with his gorgeous family on his terms.

  50. Yonati says:

    What a sweet slide show. He really is so much like Diana – sensitive, loving, and accessible.

  51. marn112 says:

    So I have 3 brothers…if I were posting birthday pics of them , it would be of them and not their wives-they are the people whose birthday I am honouring .If for Meghan’s birthday , they (being KP etc. ) post pictures of only her , this is somehow of concern???

  52. Guest with Cat says:

    Hahaha ha. That KP photo choice actually lays it out very accurately. Someone there has a sense of humor. Run, Harry, run!

    Meghan’s not in the photo because she’s at the finish line waiting to whisk winner Harry off to a fabulous life.

    I hope Harry is having a happy birthday.

  53. archies_nanny says:

    To be fair, Harry has spent most of this life sans Meghan. But yes, it’s deliberate. NBD, he is living his best life.

    I like that pic of Kate running. She has good form! Wills does not look like a natural athlete …

  54. Mariane says:

    David is clearly sending a signal😂 I fear he’s going to be fired soon. The picture they picked had alot of people (none royalists) talking. The racist comments below even got a American reporter’s attention+unlike others they call him prince harry(which is lesser than a duke). KP/cambridges are digging their own grave

    • Ginger says:

      The fact that they called him Prince Harry and not Duke of Sussex is telling. They have called him the Duke of Sussex the past two years but not now? It proves how bad the rift is.

  55. Tessa says:

    The Cambridge stans want Harry to be back as the third wheel being “so happy” with the Cambridges. Did they want him to go into a monastery and not marry or something. Weird.

  56. Tashiro says:

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong or shady with these pics and I don’t think anybody is sending any other message but what’s intended. I think they are sending messages of love and affection. There may be cracks and fractures but I think the feelings are genuine. I don’t think there’s any malice intended towards Megan either. It’s his birthday.

  57. aquarius64 says:

    No Duke of Sussex title on the birthday nod? Tacky on the part of the Cambridges.

  58. Nessa says:

    The picture is from 2017…AFTER he met Meghan & after they have been together for a while. So it isn’t “pre-Meghan”. The picture itself isn’t an issue but the reaction it is a clear indication of “you reap what you sow”. If the stories weren’t about how much Meghan wasn’t accepted. If they made more of an effort, no one would have said anything or saw the pic as nothing more than a pic of Harry with the two people who owns the twitter page.

    You reap what you sow.

  59. blunt talker says:

    I was reading a blog before coming into this one-it stated how awful and hateful the comments were directed towards Harry’s wife and some towards Archie too. These comments were allowed to stay up for the whole world to see-the Brits may not know this-these hurtful comments will be in cement for history to record the racism directed towards Meghan and Archie. If the Brits were not racist as they say-why be stupid to write something on the internet to prove that you are a liar. Harry and Meghan will be able to show exactly why they left the Uk- They will be able to show their children what happened in the Uk-as they say don’t write something that can comeback and bite you in the ass in the future-No sane person reading those comments would not believe the royalists, the royal family, and the British media caused the Sussex family to leave. All the royal palaces that wished Harry a happy birthday and allowed such comments to be seen are-EVIL SHITSTAINS OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.

  60. blunt talker says:

    PS-I just read that Barbados will remove the Queen as head of state next year-commonwealth country-they will be allowed to become a republic and make deals with other countries without worrying about the UK interference-the pretense of the British has shown their true colors of racism and hate-the countries who may become republics will never say this on record or in public-the British are putting their feet in their mouths and its hard to remove these stains.

  61. Well-Wisher says:

    Sending Birthday Greetings to Prince Harry on his 36th Birthday.
    I will do photo assumption for the Kensington Palace post.
    There are two scenarios based on competition – the first being an acknowledgement that Prince Harry won.
    Or most likely
    - “Come back Harry – We’ll even make you win sometimes ”
    A total disregard for Harry’s family as if Harry’s total purpose in life is to serve the Cambridges.
    A continuation from -
    On Meghan’s birthday the pic chosen was of one where she stooped down towards a pretty little girl, likewise the picture chosen after the Commonwealth Day of service. Meghan is looking up to Anthony Joshua All indicating, “That’s your place “.
    Instead one senses figuratively speaking that for the Cambridges to stand tall the Sussexes are expected to kneel.
    Whereas the pic included with greetings from the Queen indicates that she wants him to be happy wherever he is, it is about him.
    Clarence House chose to show an pic where father and son share a laugh along with a smiling Harry.

  62. Tessa says:

    Comments are sickening in DM and other places. Condemning Meghan for “wanting to be in the picture” yet don’t complain about Kate being in the picture.
