These are lovely.
The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, something that has only increased over the coronavirus pandemic with their roles noticeably elevated to reassure the nation.
Yes, these past few months, the Cambridge family has been at the forefront, applauding NHS workers on their doorsteps with the rest of the nation, taking part in Zoom calls and bingo nights, and now being some of the first to take part in actual post-lockdown face-to-face engagements.
It was the Cambridge children however who made news this week, as Prince William and Kate Middleton released not one but three iconic photographs to mark a double celebration.
This weekend, which saw Father’s Day as well as Prince William’s 38th birthday, the Cambridge family released a shot of the Duke of Cambridge on a swing surrounded by his three children.
Posting the sweet snap to Instagram, the Kensington Royal account captioned the photograph: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new picture of The Duke with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis ahead of The Duke’s birthday tomorrow. The picture was taken earlier this month by The Duchess.’
Then, following an overwhelmingly positive reaction, with the snap raking in over two million likes, the family took to social media once more to release two more photographs showing the Cambridge children wrestling their father to the ground.
‘Thank you everyone for your very kind wishes on The Duke of Cambridge’s birthday today!’ the couple captioned the second series of photographs, which has already garnered over one million likes.
This is lovely.
Happy birthday Prince William!
