As the Prince of Wales celebrates his 71st birthday today in Mumbai - as part of his two day India tour - it’s safe to say the royal Instagram accounts have been especially active.

Following The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s recent internet-breaking Instagram post of baby Archie, Kate Middleton and Prince William have also managed to tug on the entire nation’s heart strings in one single upload.

Captioned ‘Wishing a very happy Birthday to the Prince of Wales!” the Instagram post is a collection of cockle warming photographs of the father and granddad looking particularly happy besides his nearest and dearest.

And with royal babies now more popular than Beyoncé and the Andrex puppy combined, it’s perhaps not surprising that a picture of Prince Charles and his utterly adorable grandson Prince Louis had the internet go wild.

The first picture depicts the royal swooning over his young grandson Prince Louis who is being held up by his mother, The Duchess of Cambridge. The second shows the royal looking particularly chirpy at a formal event with his son Prince William; and in the third, he is pictured suited and booted laughing alongside his two sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

Don’t some things just make you smile?
