It is not Prince Harry who refused to attend his father’s 75th birthday event but it is King Charles who never invited him.

A spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex reported to The Messenger on Monday, November 6 that the younger son was “never invited,” so rejecting it is definite no.

The statement on the behalf of Prince Harry read, “In response to UK media headlines, there has been no contact regarding an invitation to His Majesty’s upcoming birthday.”

He went on to say, “It is disappointing The Sunday Times has misreported this story.”

Adding to the intrigue, the outlet reported that a royal source tipped that Buckingham Palace “never reached out” to Harry.

For the unversed, his Majesty is set to celebrate his 75th birthday in a small gathering with his close family and friends at the Clarence House on November 14.

The Sunday Times previously reported that the 39-year-old former royal had been reached out to grace his father’s birthday party with his presence.

However, he refused it, as per the outlet suggested.

On the contrary, according to new claims, it is pointed that he had been left off from the invite list.

The father-son duo have been at odds for the last three years; be it Harry attacking the Royal Family or King not allowing him to stay at the Palace are just a few reasons which added fuel to the feud.

Their relationship notably hit rock bottom when Harry released his memoir, Spare in which he branded Camilla a “villain” who “left bodies in the street” and accused her of leaking stories about him to the press.

It had been claimed earlier that the father-son duo “[doesn't] speak much” as Charles is highly “disappointed” at the way Harry has portrayed his family in his writing venture.
