PRINCE Harry will use a birthday phone call with King Charles to “get an apology”, royal experts have claimed.
The Duke of Sussex will today ring His Majesty from the US after last week claiming he did not receive an invitation to Charles’ 75th birthday party in Clarence House.
This morning sources close to the duke told the BBC that Harry will be speaking to his father.
Royal Biographer Angela Levin believes Harry use the call as a chance to get an apology from the King.
She told The Sun: “I don’t see Harry stepping down a few pegs and I don’t believe he will only use the call to wish him happy birthday.
“It's much more likely that he will take the opportunity to try and get an apology out of his father.

“I don't see that Harry genuinely wants to change things in the relationship. "
It comes after a spokesperson for the royal told the Messenger: "In response to UK media headlines, there has been no contact regarding an invitation to His Majesty’s upcoming birthday.”
But Ms Levin believes Harry knows “the ‘door is always open” and that he released the statement to “stir the narrative further”.
She explained: “The main question is why is he making a big hullabaloo by making his spokesperson say he was never invited and telling people that he will call Charles.
