One Detail About William And Kate's Birthday Message For Meghan Markle Is Sure To Raise Eyebrows

The British Prime Minister's pending resignation isn't the only drama-filled event going on in England. The Royal Family has had its fair share of squabbles throughout the past couple of years. According to Us Weekly, Prince William was reportedly blindsided and deeply hurt by Prince Harry's decision to step back from his royal duties and live a more normal life with his wife Meghan Markle, and it doesn't seem that the royal brothers have made amends yet.

"He alternates between grieving for what he has lost and feeling really, really angry about what his brother has done," a friend of Prince William's told Daily Mail on June 18. "He truly loves Harry and feels he has lost the only person, aside from his wife, who understood this strange life of theirs. But he believes there are things you just don't do. And Harry has 100 percent crossed that line."

Markle also had some accusations against her, as she was suspected to have bullied staff members at Kensington Palace in 2021. The queen, however, wanted this investigation to be private, per Express, as a source said, "The queen feels there has been enough drama around the Sussexes, and she wants a line to be drawn." It seems that the drama within the family hasn't subsided, though, no matter how hard they try to be supportive of each other.

The birthday message for Meghan Markle was shady

While it was nice for Prince William and Kate Middleton to wish Meghan Markle a happy birthday, there's one thing about the message that may tell people that they're still in a feud. According to Page Six, the birthday message was posted on William and Kate's Instagram Story, where the message will be gone in 24 hours, as opposed to a regular post.

"Wishing a happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex!" the message said, which was also posted to Twitter. Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, posted the same line on their Twitter, but added a balloon emoji.

These birthday messages come about a week and a half after it was reported that Prince Harry felt like the family "could be friendlier" to Markle. "Members of their family, said Harry, were not showing her sufficient support, respect and friendship," author Tom Bower wrote in his book, "Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War between the Windsor" (via Mirror). Whether the birthday messages were meant as passive aggressive or not, we hope that the family can work their drama out.
