THE Queen, Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Charles all wished Prince Harry a happy birthday today.
It's believed the Duke of Sussex, who turns 37 today, is marking the occasion in the US – although his celebrations have been kept under wraps.
Despite ongoing tensions between Harry and the Royals, all three of the Firm's main accounts shared their best wishes with the Duke online today.
Wills and Kate wrote on their Kensington Royal account: "Happy Birthday Prince Harry!"
The Queen also paid tribute to her grandson, saying: "Wishing The Duke of Sussex a happy birthday today!"
They shared snaps of the birthday boy alongside their well wishes – with Her Majesty including a picture of him stood proudly with Meghan Markle.
His father Prince Charles wished his son a "very Happy Birthday" with some touching pictures of him and a young Harry.
It marks the first display of internet affection between the estranged family members since before Prince Harry left the Royal fold.
He hasn't been able to see his loved ones much since stepping down from Royal life last year, with Covid travel restrictions placing a huge obstacle.
He has, however, seen the Queen twice since Megxit and could soon return to the UK so she can meet her great-grandaughter and namesake Lilibet.
His birthday comes just a few months after Harry became a dad for the second time, welcoming Lilibet back in June.
And it's likely the dad-of-two will mark his birthday with the help of wife Meghan and his little ones.

Royal biographer Angela Levin told The Sun Online: “I think generally when you’ve got two little children, the thrill is that certainly the older one does a little card and a painting and does a present.
“You really do any party for the child and that has the most incredible freshness about it. And underlines the fact that you are a father.
“I think that’s what you might imagine. On the other hand, they were going to have a huge party for Meghan but that didn’t happen.”
Meghan marked her birthday last month by calling on Hollywood pals to join her female mentor programme.
The 40-year-old asked people around the world to "help women reentering the workforce".
She said in a post on her Archewell website: "In reflecting on my 40th birthday and the many things I am grateful for, I’m struck that time is among our most essential gifts.
The Harry of old would have given a really brilliant party.
"Time with our loved ones, time doing the things we love, time spent learning, laughing, growing, and the sacred time we have on this earth."
She added: "I think if we all do it and see all commit to some sort of act of service, we can have some type of ripple effect."
It's been speculated that Harry could offer a similar charity message today, although some hope he puts on a party instead.
Royal expert Ingrid Seward told The Sun: “I’m sure Harry will do something.
"I hoped the Harry of old would have given a terrific party for his birthday but the new Harry will probably issue some kind of message.
"But the Harry of old would have given a really brilliant party.”
