On Tuesday, King Charles celebrated his 75th birthday.
A milestone birthday is always a significant occasion for a sitting monarch, but this was a particularly notable event, as it was Charles’ first birthday since his coronation in May.
Unfortunately for Charles and his masters, the big day was overshadowed by another controversy involving the king’s troubled family.
After a source close to Buckingham Palace claimed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided not to attend the king’s birthday party, the Sussexes released a statement of their own, offering a very different version of events .
According to Harry and Meghan, they never get Party invitation.
And in their comments to the press, the couple criticized a UK newspaper for pushing a false story.
A representative for the Sussexes said, “There has been no contact regarding invitations for Her Majesty’s upcoming birthday.”
“It is disappointing that the Sunday Times has misreported this story.”
But then, in what can only be described as the King’s birthday miracle, what seemed like another standoff between the two warring factions of the royal family led to a long-awaited easing of tensions within the Windsor clan. Got the signal.
Despite controversy over invitation, Harry and Meghan call Charles on his birthday.
Insiders say the king happily accepted the call and chatted with the couple and their two children for several minutes.
But happy families don’t generate clicks or sell newspapers, so we shouldn’t be surprised that tabloid media are already having a negative impact on this situation.
according to a new report From Page Six, an insider has branded Harry and Meghan as “complete hypocrites” for leaking details of the call to a media outlet.
“Harry and Meghan fight for privacy when it suits them, and yet as soon as Harry calls the King, it’s in a newspaper,” the source says.
It is true that news of the call became public the day it took place.
However, we have no way of confirming how this word spread.
But it should come as no surprise that the media is failing to place all the blame on Harry and Meghan.
Thankfully, at least one insider is defending the Sussexes.
A second source tells Page Six that Harry’s intentions in contacting his father were completely pure, and he looks forward to speaking with Charles again in the coming days.
“Certainly Harry wants to have a better relationship with Charles. He is her father after all,” says the insider.
Again, this isn’t the kind of sentiment that generates attention-grabbing headlines, so it’s a safe bet that part of the story will be widely ignored.
That said, we’re hoping for another leak so we can find out what Harry and Charles will discuss on their second call.
We’re guessing there won’t be a new season Crown,
