Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, is reportedly keen to get Prince Harry at the joint birthday bash being hosted for her and Prince William. Both she and William turned 40 this year and it’s reportedly important for Catherine to have Harry attend, as she believes “birthdays are a time…[for] having loved ones around.”


Duchess Catherine has been described by a close source as “nothing but a trier” as she focuses her attentions on fixing the fractured relationship between William and Harry.

Prince William's relationship with Prince Harry is said to be at “rock bottom.”

Sources have said that William "alternates between grieving for what he has lost and feeling really, really angry about what his brother has done.”

"He truly loves Harry and feels he has lost the only person, aside from his wife, who understood this strange life of theirs."

However, Catherine could be the person to help heal the rift, according to sources.

Catherine, a royal expert told the Daily Express, “is very keen for Harry to be invited [to her and William’s joint birthday party].”

“Apparently she thinks this would be an actual great way of bonding together,” the source added.

 “Birthdays are a time, as she’s pointed out, of celebration, families, and having loved ones around you.”

Catherine, who turned 40 in January, will finally celebrate her birthday after coronavirus restrictions meant plans had to be more lowkey.

A source told the Daily Mail at the time, "There are likely to be lowkey celebrations for the Duchess. She didn't want anything flashy anyway – that's not exactly her thing – but particularly given the current climate anything is likely to be scaled down."

It was recently decided, though, that her birthday would be celebrated alongside William’s, who turned 40 this June.

The party will be hosted by the Queen in one of her favorite residences, either Windsor Castle or Sandringham Estate.

Only time will tell if Catherine manages to get Harry to attend.
