The Duke of Sussex's rift with the monarch "runs deep"

Prince Harry "doesn't care" about not being invited to King Charles's birthday party, a royal commentator has claimed.

Although original reports suggested the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had "snubbed" an invitation, their spokesperson dismissed those claims as inaccurate.

Harry and Meghan had "no contact regarding an invitation", according to their spokesperson.

But a royal commentator has argued that the duke is not too concerned about missing his father's 75th birthday party.

Richard Fitzwilliams said: "I really don’t think Harry cares about not being invited to his father’s 75th.

"The rift runs deep.

"The Sussexes reportedly still want an apology from the Royal Family."

Fitzwilliams also argued that the future between King Charles and his son is "uncertain".

He told the Express: "What the future holds is uncertain.

"It is not a pleasant prospect for King Charles to deal with.

"Who would trust Harry and Meghan, especially after their timing releasing the news about not hearing anything about an invite to King Charles's 75th birthday celebrations hours before the King's first speech opening Parliament as Monarch?"

A source also claimed that the duke and duchess were unaware of King Charles's 75th birthday party until they read about it in the media.

Despite their ongoing family feud, the Sussexes would normally be included in various plans.

The source shared: "In this case, they aren't and that's okay.

"I'm sure the duke will find a way to reach out privately to wish His Majesty a happy birthday like he always done.

"The story in The Times as well as subsequent stories have been positioned in a way to make it look like the duke is snubbing his father, which he is not," they told The Mail.
