Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall wished Prince William a happy 39th birthday on Monday. Clarence House shared two throwback snaps to mark the occasion.
The first snap showed William as a baby playing on the lap of his father Charles, while the other saw the pair photographed with Camilla.
Prince Harry has reportedly been edited out of a picture posted by Clarence House to wish the Duke of Cambridge on his special day.
In the original photo, which was reportedly taken at the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games at Olympic Park in London in 2014, Harry is seen laughing with his father at the family watch performance.
The Duke of Sussex, who was seated next to the Prince of Wales at the event, is nowhere to be seen in the photo shared by Clarence House.
Royal fans and experts were quick to notice Harry's absence from the official picture, with one responded: "I don’t expect many will immediately recognise event from 2nd photo…but I did…
"That is the opening of 1st Invictus Games in 2014. Prince Harry is sitting just out of photo to right of Charles."
"Interesting to choose an important moment for Harry to celebrate the other brother."
Prince Harry is expected to fly into the UK next week ahead of the July 1 unveiling of a statue in honour of Princess Diana. The two brothers would be seen together at the Kensington Palace ceremony.
