Prince William has truly been feeling the love this week.

After celebrating the UK’s Father’s Day on Sunday, Prince William marked his 39th year on earth on Monday by waking up to an onslaught of messages and well wishes.

The British royal celebrated his birthday at his country home Anmer Hall in Sandringham.

While the family kept the celebrations low-key, William was in the countryside location over the weekend where he stepped out with his two eldest children, Prince George, seven and Princess Charlotte, five to attend the beginning of the Sandringham half marathon on Sunday.

Happy Birthday to His Royal Highness!


In a Tweet, the Queen’s official account wrote to William: “Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very Happy Birthday today!” Along with the hashtag, #HappyBirthdayHRH.

With it, the Palace shared four candid images of the Duke – the first with his gorgeous family of five at 2019’s Trooping The Colour, another with his wife Duchess Catherine sharing a light moment during an engagement, and two profile shots showing the Prince in his element.

Fans Tweeted their own thoughts on the Prince in response to Buckingham Palace’s post.

“I remember the day you were born! Millions of people waited to see you. You have matured into a wonderful, stable, man,” one wrote.

Another added of William’s late mother, Diana: “Your mum would be so proud of the young man you have become.”
