Over on Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall’s accounts, Clarence House posted two pictures of the Duke with his father, along with a close-up of Harry smiling. “Wishing The Duke of Sussex a very Happy Birthday today!” Clarence House captioned the post, adding a birthday cake emoji.
During his and Meghan’s sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, Harry opened up about his relationship with his father. “There’s a lot to work through there,” he said. “I feel really let down, because he’s been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like. And Archie’s his grandson.”
“But, at the same time, you know, I, of course, I will always love him, but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened,” the Duke continued. “And I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship.”
