Kate poised to outshine Prince Harry as Duke celebrates birthday


PRINCE Harry celebrates his 37th birthday today in the US but he risks being overshadowed by Kate who is stepping out for her first royal engagement since the summer break

The Duke of Sussex is celebrating turning 37 as he continues his new life in California after quitting royal duties with Meghan Markle. It is not known if Harry will do anything to publicly mark his birthday. The Duchess of Sussex launched a project to mentor women for her 40th in August.

However, he is likely to celebrate privately with Meghan and their two children Archie and Lilibet.

But the day risks being overshadowed by the Duchess of Cambridge who has her first royal engagement after the summer holiday.

Kate will visit RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire to meet military personnel and civilians who helped evacuate Afghans from their country.

The Duchess will chat to those who took part in Operation Pitting, which saw more than 15,000 people airlifted out of Kabul during August.

More than 850 people arrived at the RAF base and were provided practical support like food, clothing, children’s toys and medical help while their details were processed.

During her visit, Kate will meet RAF aircrews and medics who supported evacuees at Kabul airport and civilians and volunteers who established a repatriation centre at the Oxfordshire base.

Royal fans will be pleased to see the Duchess out and about again after the summer off.

The Queen has publicly wished her grandson Prince Harry a happy birthday.

The Royal Family Twitter account, which represents the Queen and all the senior royals who don’t have their own social media handle, shared a post for Prince Harry, who turns 37 today.

The tweet includes four pictures of the Duke of Sussex and a message of best wishes for his special day.

The tweet read: “Wishing The Duke of Sussex a happy birthday today!”
