Meghan and Harry Wish William a Happy Birthday on the Kensington's Official Instagram Page

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle surprise royal fans as they formally greet Prince William a happy birthday on his Instagram account.

Prince William received many greetings of well wishes on his 37th birthday, including a rather “formal” one from the Sussex Royal’s, Prince Harry and Meghan, which the couple posted through an Instagram comment.


“Happy birthday to the Duke of Cambridge,” wrote the Sussex Royals account.



The greeting came after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a photo of William smiling while leaning against a safari truck during, what seems to be, their visit to Mkomazi National Park in September.

One fan commented her sentiments on the photo, suggesting a different, more affectionate approach for greeting William on his birthday. The comment read:

“Wishing your brother just like this is so useless. Sharing a photo with a kind message would be so nice.”

Prince Charles and Prince Andrew, on the other hand, posted vintage black and white photos of baby William on their respective social media accounts to pay tribute on his special day.

With William in line to the throne and most likely being king in the future, more charities and duties will be managed under his name.


A day prior to the celebration, an announcement of the brothers’ Royal Foundation’s separation was made, as Meghan and Harry wish to break away and pursue their own charitable ventures. The announcement comes after a series of news about a feud between the two royal couples.

With the media usually blowing things out of proportion, it is still left a big question whether there exists a tension in the royal family. However, past actions of the royals have shown that Sussex and Cambridge's couples are going in different directions.

“It’s very hard to believe these couples are not at war with each other. There is no actual reason they have to do it, I can’t see,” says royal commentator, Angela Mollard.


Charitable events for the royals are nothing new. Each royal has been doing it since their younger years, including William who worked as a volunteer for the Raleigh International Charity in Southern Chile at the age of 18.

When he was 24, William took on bigger roles, including being President of the Football Association, a title previously held by Prince Andrew. One of his tasks was to do the annual pass of The Football Association Challenge Cup to the winners.

“Child Bereavement UK is a truly remarkable organisation. With great sympathy and sensitivity, you have spent the last 25 years working with children, young people and families to help them navigate the difficult path of grief. By providing professionals and people across the UK with the tools and guidance they need to support friends, family and colleagues who are bereaved, you are helping to create a support network aimed at providing comfort to those in the most painful situations. And you shine a beacon of light in the darkness as families learn to live with their loss, and find hope - and laughter - again.” The Duke of Cambridge, Royal Patron of Child Bereavement UK since 2009, attended the charity’s 25th Birthday Gala Dinner in honour of its work since 1994. At this evening’s dinner he met Ian and Jo Browell, who were supported by Child Bereavement UK when their daughter Lizzy died suddenly aged just 8 years old. Ian and Jo credit the charity with helping them rebuild their lives after their bereavement and called the organisation an “absolute rock” for them and their other daughter, Jessica, now 16. At the launch of The King’s Cup in May, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met Sefofo and Eddie, who were supported by Child Bereavement UK when their baby brother Raphael died. The charity will be represented by one of the eight boats in the Regatta later this year, which will raise awareness and funds for eight of Their Royal Highnesses’ patronages. Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals, both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, and when a child is facing bereavement — follow @ChildBereavementUK to find out more about their vital work supporting bereaved families. 📷PA/Kensington Palace @ChildBereavementUK #childbereavementuk #CBUK25

With William in line to the throne and most likely being king in the future, more charities and duties will be managed under his name. This would also mean more work given to his brother and sister-in-law.
