The Duke of Sussex will mark his 36th birthday away from the members of the Royal Family except for his wife, Meghan Markle, and son, Archie. The celebration will be hosted by music producer David Foster, who is said to have become a “father figure” to him.
The “low-key” event will take place on September 15 at Mr Foster’s Los Angeles home.
Mr Foster’s wife, Katharine McPhee, went to the same school as Meghan where she grew up in California.
However, Prince Harry’s relatives will not be in attendance to the lavish party, and neither will be Thomas Markle, Meghan’s estranged dad.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror one source said: “David wants to make it special for Harry but also keep it casual and low-key with some fine wine, great food and intimate company.
“He is setting aside the fire pit at his home plus the whole outdoor area, which security will cordon off.
“The small gathering will also include his daughters Erin and Sara and their husbands.
“They are around the same age as Harry and Meghan.
“David has been helping to connect the Sussexes so they can create a group of close friends and feel more comfortable in LA.”

Ms PcPhee said her husband has got a big heart and “loves to help the people he cares about”.
She added: “Meghan and I knew each other from childhood but Harry and my husband really are friends. It’s nice.”
The Duchess recently marked her 39th birthday in a private celebration with Harry.
For the special day, Prince Harry reportedly cooked Meghan Markle a three-course dinner while Doria babysat Archie.
A source close to the family said: “They spent the day as a family and in the evening, Doria looked after Archie so that Meghan and Harry could enjoy some couple time.
