As the Royal Family continue to bear the brunt of Prince Harry’s public attacks, members of The Firm have taken a moment to acknowledge Catherine, Princess of Wales’ birthday with a touching message.

The Princess of Wales celebrated her 41st birthday on Monday, January 9 and although much of the attention surrounding the Royal Family has been focused on the recent damaging claims made by Prince Harry that didn’t detract from Catherine’s special day.

“Wishing The Princess of Wales a very Happy Birthday today!” the Royal Family wrote alongside a sweet photo of a smiling Catherine accepting flowers from 2-year-old Charlotte Bunting during a royal engagement.

The birthday message weren’t just contained to members of the Royal Family, with a sea of birthday messages quickly pouring in from an adoring public across the globe.


Catherine’s birthday celebrations will surely come as a welcome distraction for the Royal Family following a series of “revealing and explosive” tell-all interviews in which Prince Harry has levelled several attacks against members of his family.

The Duke of Sussex recently sat down with ITV’s Tom Bradby where he revealed that the ongoing feud with The Firm “never needed to be this way”.

“The leaking, the planting, I want a family – not an institution,” he said.

“They feel as though it’s better to keep us, somehow, as the villains. They’ve shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile.

“I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back.”

Prince Harry also appeared on 60 Minutes for an interview with CNN news anchor Anderson Cooper, where he made it clear he had no intention of returning to royal life

During the interview,  Cooper asked the 38-year-old father of two if he saw himself returning as a full-time member of the Royal Family, which Harry quickly shot down with a firm “no”.

Cooper went on to questions why Prince Harry has chosen to go public with his concerns, to which Harry replied that he had previously tried to deal with the issues in private but claimed it only resulted in Buckingham Palace “planting” stories against him and his wife, Meghan Markle, to the media.

“You know, the family motto is ‘Never complain, never explain,’ but it’s just a motto,” he said.

“They will feed or have a conversation with the correspondent and that correspondent will be spoon-fed information and write the story.

“At the bottom of [a story], they will say that they’ve reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment. But the whole story is Buckingham Palace commenting.

“So when we are being told for the last six years we can’t put a statement out to protect you, but you do it for the rest of the family, there becomes a point when silence is betrayal.”
