"I think it is likely they will send a public message through gritted teeth," he said. "But whether a present will be sent privately, I don't know, such is the state of the relationship."

He continued, "I think Charles, the Queen, and William and Kate don't want to make the situation worse by having a public slanging match with them, but privately I think they are very upset by how things have turned out. They're not obliged to give her messages on her birthday, but they don't want to make the it worse."

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams was adamant that the family would "be in touch with Meghan. They will wish her [a] 'happy birthday.'"

"They normally do so for birthdays," he added. "But I wouldn't know if they'd send anything, and it's unlikely that we will find out. We wouldn't be told if anything special will be sent."
