In a moving tribute from Prince Charles, the Clarence House Instagram posted a series of shots of William through the years with his father.
The first photo was a black and white shot of Prince Charles holding baby William on the day he was born. The next photos in the series showed William on a ski lift with Charles, the pair walking through a field of cows, standing on the Buckingham Palace balcony with Camilla and Prince George, and a loving shot of William with his arm around his father.
The caption read, “Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very happy 40th birthday! [cake emoji] [balloon emoji].”
It was a lovely tribute considering Prince William and Prince Charles have not always had the easiest relationship over the years, though they have grown closer amid the drama with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
