In regards to Catherine's birthday, I'm sure Harry and Meghan, and Charles and Camilla, and all the other family members did whatever they usually do, and whatever is customary within the family. That might have been a phone call, a congratulatory text, a signed card, flowers, or tea and fairy cakes. Who knows? What they didn't do was give any information out to the press, so like most stories about the royals' private lives, this one is sheer speculation.
They also have their own family WhatsApp group, so they communicate through that as well. As I said before, they’re much more close than the press would like you to know.

Do we know if they gave a family WhatsApp group?

Oh; how I'd love to be a fly on the wall in that group!

So it's a secure, unhackable App?

Nothing is secure and unhackable.

No, but What’s App is considered *far* more secure than most.

Why? It is private conversations between family members. The only reason a person would enjoy would be to record and sell it to the media for money making.

Yes, Mike Tindall, have mentioned that the younger members of the family communicate through the family chat group in WhatsApp. Older members of my family do the same.

It wasn't meant to be taken seriously hence the Obviously I wouldn't hack into their account and read all their messages, you're taking what I said out of context and I don't like being labelled for something like that. It's comments such as these which really make me wonder why I'm still posting on the site; which is sad because it should be a place to enjoy away from the realities of life. (Though I also realise I am too much of a TRF addict to leave .) I don't like sounding so negative, but quite frankly, I'm just done with people taking things so seriously and ruining the fun and trivia of the site for others, because that's how I feel at the moment. Disagreeing with things is fine, because that laments for a healthy discussion, though overreactions and constant nitpicks (in general, not just you) become tiring after time.
You could also criticise everyone who uses the "fly on the wall" phrase, because the whole point of the phrase is that it's a moment you would have liked to but were unable to see. You could say the exact same thing to someone using the phrase in a real life context and accuse them of harassment or stalking. But we don't, because it's a lighthearted phrase.

There's a new docmentary airing in England entitled The Queen's Children. Some reports about it, which detail interesting family relationships:
