Yesterday was Prince Harry's birthday, and he had quite a day considering he and Meghan Markle made the Time 100 list! And on top of that well-deserved honor, the royal family did go ahead and wish Harry HBD amid their ongoing *sigh* royal feud. But, um, apparently Prince William's post for his brother has been deemed all kinds of curt.

Kate and Wills hit up their official Twitter account to send Harry a birthday message, simply writing "Happy Birthday Prince Harry!" with a single red balloon.

I mean, seems nice enough, but royal expert Duncan Larcombe claims the post was the bare minimum.

"William and Kate’s curt birthday message to Harry only serves as proof the ice between the brothers has still not thawed," Duncan told The Sun. “Short of ignoring the Duke of Sussex’s 37th landmark completely, their social media post was the bare minimum from a couple who once welcomed Harry as their official Royal gooseberry."

“If anything, this year’s birthday wishes from the Cambridges are an indication of just how far relations between the two warring clans have deteriorated over the past 12 months,” Duncan added, nothing that 2020's birthday post was more enthusiastic.

“On the same day in 2020, William and Kate posted a longer message complete with birthday cake emoji and a red balloon, above a picture throwing back to happier times," he said, adding that in 2019 the vibe was even friendlier, and included a pic of Wills and Harry grinning at each other.

“That year, William chose a moving picture of the day he repaid the complement by performing the role of Best Man and his brother’s wedding," Duncan said. “The image was seen as a symbol of enduring, unbreakable, brotherly love – and we now know it was aimed at quashing claims at the time the pair had fallen out. Now the cat is long out of the bag, there is no repeated attempt to hide the fact relations between them remain frosty to say the least."

There are rumors that William and Harry could reunite for Christmas with the royals, so here's to hoping their drama ends soon. And TBH, William and Kate's b-day post this year seemed pretty nice, IMO!
