AceShowbiz - King Charles III has included Prince Harry in a tribute post to celebrate his 75th birthday despite their rift. The official Instagram account of the British royal family shared a video featuring a series of pictures of the British monarch's life.
Shared on Tuesday, November 14, some of the throwback photos saw Charles and Harry in happy father-son moments during Harry's childhood. One snap was taken on the day when the Duke of Sussex was born.
Young Harry could be seen enjoying a ski trip with his father in one snap. Another picture, meanwhile, saw Harry flashing a smile while standing next to Charles at a 1996 royal event.
The video kicked off with a photo of late Queen Elizabeth II holding baby Charles on her lap. It continued flashing some big moments throughout his life, including his coronation in May. "Wishing His Majesty The King a happy 75th birthday," the caption read.
The birthday shout-out arrived after it was rumored that Harry turned down an invitation to King Charles' 75th birthday party. Insiders told Daily Mail that the British monarch's family and friends are set to attend the event. Harry, who also allegedly received an invite to the bash to celebrate Charles' milestone, decided to skip the soiree on November 14.
Harry, via his spokesperson, immediately shut down the claims. "In response to U.K. media headlines, there has been no contact regarding an invitation to His Majesty's upcoming birthday," the rep told The Messenger. "It is disappointing the Sunday Times has misreported this story."
A royal source also backed the claims. The insider told the outlet that the Buckingham Palace "never reached out" to Harry regarding the bash honoring Charles' milestone on November 14. A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace, meanwhile, declined to comment.
