Prince Charles Posts Extremely Personal Throwback Photo with Prince Harry in Honor of His Bday

Prince Charles just broke his silence and wished his son, Prince Harry, a happy birthday.

Earlier today, the 72-year-old royal joined in on the celebrations and shared a slideshow of photos on the joint Instagram account he shares with his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles. The birthday tribute featured three rare pictures of Prince Harry, including a nostalgic pic from the ’90s.

While the first is a candid shot of the father-son duo, the second is a solo portrait of Prince Harry. The last pic is a throwback that was taken back in 1997 during the royal tour of South Africa. It features young Prince Harry standing alongside Prince Charles as they press their hands into wet concrete.

“Wishing The Duke of Sussex a very Happy Birthday today! [cake emoji],” the caption read.

Prince Charles isn’t the only member of the royal family who wished Prince Harry a happy birthday. He’s following in the footsteps of Prince William, who posted a short and sweet message on social media. “Happy birthday Prince Harry [balloon emoji],” he wrote.

Queen Elizabeth also shared a heartfelt tribute on Instagram and Twitter, featuring a handful of throwback photos of the prince. “Wishing The Duke of Sussex a very happy birthday!” she captioned the posts. So, does this mean the Duke of Sussex is on good terms with his grandma? Based on the photos, it seems highly likely.

Thank you, Prince Charles, for this much-needed walk down memory lane.
