Not only does the message show that the queen was thinking about her grandson, but also that the two appear to be on good terms and that Her Majesty continues to support the 37-year-old, even though he hasn’t been a senior royal in over a year. At least, that’s what we’re getting from the photo choices.
Elizabeth opted to use four photos in the post, including two of Harry performing his royal duties and one alongside his wife, Meghan Markle. The pics are quite symbolic, considering they show that the queen respects the duke’s marriage and his time as a working member of the royal family and still thinks of him as part of that family structure. In addition, all of the images showcase Harry smiling and looking his happiest.
Queen Elizabeth isn’t the only one who sent well wishes. Prince William shared a short and sweet message on the Instagram he shares with Kate Middleton. “Happy birthday Prince Harry,” the couple captioned a photo of Harry. They even added a balloon emoji. Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, posted a similar message.
