Prince Harry Prince Harry Now that the celebrations for Prince George's first birthday are over, there's another occasion in the royal calendar to start thinking about-Prince Harry's 30th.

Harry reaches the big 3-0 on Monday, September 15, but don't expect any Vegas-style partying.

I'm told the William and Kate are in charge of the celebrations, which will be a suitably grown-up affair, complete with a dinner party at the palace. Harry's best friend, nightclub owner Guy Pelly, has offered to throw a party for Harry on his actual birthday, at Sloane Square hot spot Tonteria (where the big night is Monday), but the birthday boy is under strict instructions to leave at 10:30 P.M.

"Harry would like to go, but he knows he can't have a crazy night out and misbehave. For him, September is all about the Invictus Games and he doesn't want anything overshadowing that," our source tells us.

The games, which will be held at the Olympic Park, in London, finish the day before Harry's birthday, and he's likely to want to celebrate and let off a bit of steam.

Royal Watch is told that William and Kate will be hosting a dinner party for 30 close friends at Kensington Palace to celebrate. "Kate's in charge of the meal plan and William's sorting the invites," we are told. Now that sounds like a party to be at!
