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!”
The first picture chosen to celebrate Prince Harry simply shows the Duke smiling during an engagement.
In the second, he is speaking during another royal visit.
The third photograph shows Prince Harry in the company of his wife Meghan clapping their hand during the closing ceremony of the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney.

The last snap picked for this post was taken in September 2019, during Harry’s last royal tour.
It shows the Duke high-five a school child who is planting a tree at the Chobe Tree Reserve in Botswana.
The Queen’s message via Twitter was quickly followed by birthday wishes from the two other main royal households – Kensington Palace and Clarence House.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William shared another message dedicated to the Duke.

Accompanied by a red balloon emoji, the tweet read: “Happy Birthday Prince Harry!”
The Cambridges added a single picture of the Duke of Sussex taken in January 2020, when he hosted the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draws at Buckingham Palace.
The last key royals to publicly wish the Duke a happy birthday this morning have been Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
The tweet released by Clarence House, just minutes after the ones posted by Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace, read: “Wishing The Duke of Sussex a very Happy Birthday today!”

Unlike the other birthday messages, it included three pictures – two of which portrayed the Prince of Wales and Harry together.
One of the snaps chosen was taken in 2014, during the opening ceremony of the first-ever Invictus Games, and portrays Charles and Harry laughing together on the stands.
Prince Harry hasn’t shared plans with the public over how he will spend his birthday.
Since the summer of 2020, he has been living in his home in Montecito, Santa Barbara, with Meghan and their son Archie Harrison.
In June, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex became the proud parents of a baby girl, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana.
Harry has recently made a public appearance to celebrate a cause very close to his heart.
On Monday night, Prince Harry took part from his home in Montecito in a virtual event dedicated to Warrior Games athletes and their families.
The Duke first saw the Warrior Games taking place in 2013, during his official visit to the US, and they inspired him to create the Invictus Games.
