William is believed to have spent the day with loved ones after chatting with Big Issue salesman Dave Martin, but despite the happy family occasion, insiders have revealed Kate is heartbroken that her husband isn’t celebrating the day with his younger brother, Prince Harry.
The Duke of Cambridge turned 40 on Tuesday June 21 and marked the day by campaigning against homelessness – an issue close to his heart.
To mark William’s big day, the Queen posted a candid photo of the smiling Duke with the caption: “As the runner-up to the throne turns 40, learn more about His Royal Highness.”
The 96-year-old monarch followed up with eight more photos taken at different stages of her grandson’s life – each with an insightful fact about the duke.
Despite good wishes and congratulations from other members of the royal enterprise, the rift between the two royal brothers appears to be continuing.
A royal source said Kate tried to encourage the two brothers to work out their differences when the Duke was 40, saying she thought it would be the “best birthday present ever”.
A source close to the family told Closer that the Duchess felt nostalgic on her husband’s birthday, especially since she celebrated his 30th birthday in 2012 with a special trip to Wales where the Prince Harry and William spent a lot of time building connections.
The insider said Kate even “quietly messaged” Harry and it would mean a lot to William if he made some kind of contact on his big day.
They said: “Kate is a wonderful diplomat and an eternal optimist. It is her firm belief that one day Harry will come out of his trance and be his own man.
“If she can somehow get the boys to make peace – even temporarily – that would be the greatest birthday present William could wish for.”
The relationship between the two royals is believed to have started to break down after William raised concerns about Harry’s rapidly developing relationship with Meghan Markle.
Speaking of the brother’s breakup, royal author Ingrid Seward said: “Kate has done a lot to foster their relationship and although William has always watched over Harry, he feels there is nothing more he can do at the moment.
“Instead, he focuses on what he knows he can achieve rather than wasting time on things he can’t change.
“He knows what lies ahead and he knows how difficult it is, but with the help of Kate and the support of his father the Prince of Wales, he remains positive and optimistic about his future.”
