The Cambridges weren't the only royals to send birthday wishes to Harry. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh wrote on the royal family's account: "Wishing The Duke of Sussex a very happy birthday!" while sharing a photo of Harry with his grandmother at a Queen’s Young Leaders reception at Buckingham Palace in 2017. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall also shared two photos of Harry to celebrate the occasion.

William was Harry's best man on his wedding day in 2018

Prince William is two years older than brother Harry, who was born on 15 September 1984. Growing up, the royal brothers shared an incredibly close bond, both attending Eton College and serving in the military.

Just like Harry was his best man, William returned the favour when his brother married former actress Meghan in Windsor in May 2018. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, both had starring roles as pageboy and bridesmaid at the royal wedding.
