Royal fans ask if Harry and Meghan wished Kate Middleton ‘happy 40th birthday’
Royal fans are split over whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent a private message to Kate Middleton to mark her 40th birthday on Sunday.
It comes after speculation mounted that the California-based royals may have got in touch with the Duchess of Cambridge privately at the weekend to send their best wishes for the milestone date.
The Sussexes did not make any public posts on the day via their social media channels or website.
Offering his insight on the 'birthday question', royal expert Charles Rae said he believed it was likely that a Zoom call had in fact taken place.
Harry revealed the video conferencing app was his preferred mode of contact with UK-based members of The Firm such as the Queen in an interview with James Corden last year.
Prior to the big day, Mr Rae told Entertainment Weekly: "Who knows what the Montecito Massive will do.
"But as they are thousands of miles away it is likely they will wish her happy birthday via Zoom."
Avid royal fans, meanwhile, took part in heated debate over Meghan and Harry, with some doubting that they reached out to Kate.
Responding to the lack of public greeting, one peeved user on Twitter took aim at the Duke by writing: "Tacky & petty. She's your sister in law. Jealousy has no limits. I thought Harry loved Catherine like a 'sister' – he is certainly showing his cruel side."
Another quipped "the famous ‘Zoom call’ i.e. never happened", while another joked: "Sure they did."
Someone else fumed: "I don’t believe a word of it even the PR people don’t dare to say more than 'might have'."
It stands in stark contrast to the cosy communications of previous years, which came before a reported breakdown in relations between the two royal brothers and their families.
Shortly after 'Megxit' in 2020, the official Sussex Instagram account commented "Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duchess of Cambridge today!" on a post commemorating the day on the Cambridges' account.
