Prince Harry is celebrating his 39th birthday on Friday. And while he’s having a blast with wife Meghan Markle in Germany, it doesn’t look like he will be getting any public well-wishes from his family in the United Kingdom.

While the Windsor clan usually posts tributes for a member of the family’s birthday, The Firm most likely won’t share a message on social media this year.

Protocol changed in September following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. With now King Charles as the new monarch, posts have been limited to just highlighting working members of the royal family.

The Duke of Sussex stepped back as a senior member of the family alongside Markle, 42, in 2020. They subsequently moved from the UK to Montecito, California.

The “Suits” alum was also not celebrated by the family when she turned 42 on Aug. 4.

Nevertheless, Markle and Harry have been celebrating his birthday together at the Invictus Games in Düsseldorf, Germany. During an event on Friday, the audience sang “Happy Birthday” to the duke.

The couple were watching a volleyball match between Poland and Germany when the surprise moment took place.

“Is there anybody here celebrating their own special occasion today?” an emcee asked the crowd, as Harry appeared embarrassed at his seat.

“Anyone’s birthday? Oh, I think it is someone’s birthday. A certain Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is 39 today. Happy birthday! Let’s sing along,” the announcer added.

One day earlier, the pair took a break from watching the games and hit up a German beer hall.

Ever since King Charles took on the British throne last year, birthday tributes have just been reserved for working members.

They stopped by the Schumacher restaurant alongside their aides where they drank beer and ate authentic food such as wiener schnitzel, pork knuckle, sausage, roast and mashed potatoes.

They even took some photos with a few fans and employees from the eatery.

Body language expert Judi James claimed to the Mirror that Harry seemed “bashful” when he was celebrating his birthday.

She revealed that his smile was more “low-key” compared to at the tournaments, as he had “no display of teeth” at his party. This suggests that Harry was a “no fuss please birthday boy.”
