After enjoying Father’s Day this past Sunday, Prince William already has another reason to celebrate. Today, the future king reached his 37th year-and the whole royal family was eager to wish him a happy birthday.
Royals tend to have private events to mark their birthdays, but they’ve still found a way to engage with royal watchers around the world-with thoughtful Instagram posts.
On the Clarence House Instagram account, Prince Charles and Camilla marked the occasion with a touching post. They shared a throwback photo of Charles playing with William in the Kensington Palace Garden, along with the message “Happy Birthday to HRH The Duke of Cambridge, who turns 37 today. #HappyBirthdayHRH🎂”
Meanwhile, the main royal family Instagram handle-which represents Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, among other members of the House of Windsor-shared its own message of congratulations. This morning, it posted a slideshow of images of William, with several of the pictures showing him alongside the Queen. The caption of the photo not only wished William a happy birthday, but also explained the Duke’s place in the line of succession.
Never one to miss a family birthday, the Duke of York also shared a photo in honor of his nephew’s milestone. The throwback picture showed a young William visiting Prince Andrew on the HMS Brazen in 1986.
And Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s own account even got in on the action, posting a smiley photo of the birthday boy along with a message of thanks for all the well wishes.
Prince Harry celebrated his older brother by commenting on that post with the message: “Happy Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge!”
