Prince Harry will call Prince William or send him a text message on his birthday, a royal expert has said.

The Duke of Cambridge celebrates his 39th birthday today, just weeks before he is due to reunite with his brother to unveil a statue of their mum Princess Diana.

An unveiling ceremony will be held at Kensington Palace on July 1, on what would have been her 60th birthday.

And with Prince William celebrating on Monday, June 21, Brittani Barger, Deputy Editor of Royal Central, a US website focused on news about the monarchy, told the Daily Star the brothers "have been in contact".

"I'd say they've been in contact recently as the unveiling of the statue of their mother is coming up in the next few weeks.

"So, I think Harry will call his brother on his birthday or send a text to wish him well."

It comes following reports that members of the royal family are "sick" of the drama surrounding Prince Harry.

The reports came after a number of comments made by the Duke of Cambridge's brother Prince Harry this year which have brought a number of matters into the public eye.

And now, members of the royal family are said to be sick of everything "being played out so publicly", with reports suggesting it is a particular annoyance to Prince William.

"The royal family, especially Prince William, is sick of all the drama being played out so publicly," a source reportedly told InTouch Weekly magazine.

While Prince Harry and Prince William are expected to show a united front at the event to unveil a statue in honour of their late mother, it is reported that the royals are "bracing for a showdown behind closed doors".

The source added: "They’ve agreed to put their issues [aside] in public, but behind closed doors, everyone is bracing for a showdown.

"[Harry and William’s] relationship has been strained for months. They’re due for a long talk to hash out their issues."

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle announced on January 8 last year that they would step back from senior positions within the Firm following talks at Sandringham with Prince Charles, Prince William and the Queen.

Meghan and Harry have since relocated with their son Archie Harrison to California, having spent the intervening period living in Canada, in hopes of a more private lifestyle.

Harry has since appeared on a bombshell interview alongside wife Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey, appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden and spoken about life growing up while on the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard.

The Duke also discussed his life in his new Apple TV+ documentary series The Me You Can't See.
