Prince William ‘snubbed Harry’s birthday Zoom call’ after making ‘some excuse’

Prince William and Kate Middleton reportedly didn’t join a birthday call for Prince Harry after making “some excuse”.

Prince Charles and The Queen organised a Zoom call to celebrate the Duke of Sussex’s 36th birthday.

Camilla, Meghan Markle and baby son Archie were also present for the Royal Family catch-up.

A source told the Sunday Mirror : “William sent his birthday best wishes. There was some excuse made about why he wasn’t there.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge masked up to visit a London Jobcentre and bagel bakery on September 15, the day of Harry’s birthday.

The insider added: "It was very pleasant. Harry told the family how much he missed them.

“Meghan baked a cake and Harry blew out candles. Archie made them laugh when he also blew them out.”

Archie, now 16 months old, also thrilled Charles when he said “Pa”, short for grandpa.

But the insider added: “It was a bit awkward that William and Kate weren’t there.”

Rumours of a rift between the two brothers have long been circulating.

Harry himself referenced the tension last year, telling ITV journalist Tom Bradby that he and William were “on different paths”.

Discussing the recent call, the source added: “The boys love each other and there will always be a close connection. It’s just been difficult of late.

“It’s ­unfortunate that William could not be on the call.”

William urged harry not to “rush” into his relationship with Meghan, according to royal biography Finding Freedom.

The Duke of Sussex was supposedly furious that William encouraged him to “take time…to get to know” Meghan during a heart-to-heart conversation.

William and Kate shared a snap with Harry to mark his 36th birthday.

The three of them were pictured running a leg of a relay race in February 2017 during an event for the royals’ mental health campaign Heads Together, months after Harry had started dating Meghan.

His wife was absent from all the royal photos shared to mark his birthday, reportedly because of the monarchy’s protocol.
