• Queen Elizabeth II turned 96 on Thursday
  • Megan and Prince Harry were silent on the day
  • Other royals dedicated loving tributes to the Queen

Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 96th birthday on Thursday. Of course, congratulations rained in from all over the world and the royals in particular paid tribute to the Queen.

Prince Harry and Meghan didn't wish the Queen a happy birthday?

Two royals, however, remained silent. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan did not greet the Queen — at least not publicly. That's likely because they haven't used their Instagram account for years. Otherwise, they typically share messages via the website of their charity Archewell, but none for the Queen this year.

Harry and Meghan will certainly have congratulated the Queen in private. After all, Harry's grandmother is very important to him, as a recent visit to the Palace showed. Prince Harry even said he visited to make sure the Queen has "the right people around her."

Other royals, such as Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, congratulated the monarch on their official Twitter page. Captioning a photo collage of the Queen, they wrote: "Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a particularly special 96th birthday today, as we celebrate her Platinum Jubilee year."

The second in line to the throne, Prince William, and his wife Duchess Kate congratulated the ruler. On their official Instagram account, they wrote: "Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 96th birthday today! An inspiration to so many across the UK, the Commonwealth and the world."

The Queen spent her special day in Sandringham and shared a nice new photo with her ponies.
