As royal fans, getting any glimpse into the lives of those belonging to the House of Windsor is always exciting.

That’s why we were overjoyed to open Instagram last night and come across a photo that we can only describe as pure heaven.

Indeed Prince Charles, AKA the Prince of Wales AKA future King and doting grandfather, is ringing in his 71st birthday – and the royal family have made it their mission to ensure he is feeling the love with some beautiful tributes across social media.

In what was a very exciting move from Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, the pair decided to celebrate the Prince’s birthday by sharing a brand new picture of baby Archie that had not been seen by the public.

The gorgeous snap, which was taken on the day of Archie’s christening back in July, features the doting grandfather looking at his new grandson with an expression of wonder on his face.

Meanwhile Harry is seen cradling his newborn son with a satisfied grin – too cute!

The gorgeous never-before-seen snap features three generations of royals.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Duchess Catherine also added their well wishes to the beloved father and grandfather.

Taking to their own Instagram account, Kensington Royal, the pair shared a series of gorgeous images of Charles with various members of their family.

The first image, taken for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebrations last year, is a gorgeous candid shot of him playing with young Prince Louis as he is held by mum, Kate.

In the second, the Prince of Wales is seen laughing gleefully next to his son William.

And in a very special third snap, the proud dad is seen standing next to his two sons William and Harry.

Prince Andrew also hopped on board the Happy Birthday train, sharing a beautiful photo of himself and Charles shortly after the younger sibling was born.

The caption read: “Happy Birthday to The Prince of Wales!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣To mark HRH’s 71st Birthday, here’s photo from 1960 of the then Prince Charles holding a baby Prince Andrew.”⁣⁣ ⁣

And the official account for the royal family of course shared some gorgeous candid snaps of the Prince, writing its own tribute: “Wishing The Prince of Wales a very happy birthday! 🎈🎂 “

Charles is currently spending his birthday in India, where he is undertaking a short royal tour.

Next up, he will travel to New Zealand, where he and wife Duchess Camilla will partake in various engagements and see different parts of the country. This will mark their second visit to the South Pacific country in the last four years.
