Column header not middle centered in vb.net

Hi all.

I have the code below and I included the code for one of the columns. What is happening is if the column header is "word wrapped" then it is no longer centered so it looks weird because the data in the row is centered but the column header is not perfectly centered but slightly to the left.

I've read that a fix is to remove the sorting, but we need the sorting for the datagrid.

Any idea how I can fix this?

DataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.WrapMode = DataGridViewTriState.True     'Word wrap 
        DataGridView1.AutoSizeRowsMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeRowsMode.AllCells  'Adjust the height of the rows
        DataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter    'Center in the middle cell contents
        DataGridView1.ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter   'Center in the middle the column headers
        DataGridView1.AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.LightGray
        DataGridView1.ClipboardCopyMode = DataGridViewClipboardCopyMode.EnableWithoutHeaderText

        DataGridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = False

        DataGridView1.ColumnCount = 8   'Set Columns Count

        'Add Columns

        DataGridView1.Columns(0).Name = "MasterItemNumber"
        DataGridView1.Columns(0).HeaderText = "Master Item Number"
        DataGridView1.Columns(0).DataPropertyName = "MasterItemNumber"
        DataGridView1.Columns(0).Width = 120

Column header will be slightly to the left to leave room for the sorting indicator. So if you want it to be perfectly centred but also want to allow sorting then you would probably need to custom render it.
