The Sunday Times reported that Harry and Meghan turned down an invite to Charles' Clarence House party, which will take place tonight.
They have not spoken to each for at least six months, according to reports.
But Harry and Meghan hit back at that report, saying they had never received an invite.
Sources close to the couple now say Charles' youngest son will make the effort to call his father on his birthday, the BBC reported.
The King will be spending his birthday in a number of ways, which includes hosting an NHS reception, in addition to launching a poverty project.
"Food need is as real and urgent a problem as food waste," the King said about his campaign.
The King told the Big Issue that "cost of living pressures" had resulted in "too many families and individuals missing out on nutritious meals".
The project will aim to create distribution hubs and fill them with surplus food.
To celebrate the King's birthday, at noon, the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery, named by Charles's grandfather King George VI, will fire a 41-gun salute from London's Green Park.
An hour later, the Honourable Artillery Company will fire a 62-gun salute at Tower Wharf, Tower of London - an extra 21 for the City of London.
