Prince Harry is not invited to Prince William's 40th birthday celebrations

The royal brothers, Prince William and Prince Harry, once had an unbreakable bond. However, it seems like ever since Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview with Oprah, the rift between the brothers has grown irreparably wide.

A broken family?

A few months after the couple spilled the beans, Harry and William unveiled a statue together in honour of their mother. Some royal observers thought that the two were finally using the opportunity to mend bridges, but now it seems like that was not the case.

According to reports, Prince Harry has also put an even larger weight on their already strained relationship by choosing not to attend Prince Philip’s memorial service. The exact reason behind why he decided to forgo the important family event is unknown but it could be due to the fact that he was unable to secure security for his family in the UK.

Prince William’s birthday celebrations

Whatever the reasons behind his absence, Prince William has made his own shocking decision. A source has confirmed, toHeatworld.com, that Prince Harry is not being invited for his older brother’s 40th birthday celebrations. The source said:

The feeling is that, even if Harry and Meghan decided to come to William’s celebration, and that is a big if, their presence would bring a whole fresh set of problems, and nobody wants that.
The sad truth is that William barely recognises, let alone relates to, his younger brother any more.

They added that despite the current situation, ‘William still loves Harry’ and that that would never change.
