Duchess Catherine is known to be a talented photographer, but her latest instalment of imagery has one upped even her own, previous gorgeous work.

The British royals shared a series of candid snaps for a double whammy of celebrations for Prince William, who over the weekend celebrated his 38th birthday, as well as celebrating Father’s Day, which took place in the UK on Sunday.

As with many other special royal occasions, new photos of the royal were released in celebration of both occasions – and while we might have expected some kind of snap, per se, we were not ready for what we actually got… which was a series of completely, utterly, glorious pics of the family.

Shared to their official Palace Instagram account, Kensington Royal, the palace shared a new snap of Wills and his three children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five and Prince Louis, two.

The image of the four royals was captured by the Duchess, taken at what is presumably their country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

According to the caption, it was taken earlier in June.

Then came more glorious images as Wills’ 38th birthday came to a close.

In two additional pictures, the Cambridges form a fun human scrum (all very friendly, of course), with the foursome playing in the grass and falling on top of each other.

“Thank you everyone for your very kind wishes on The Duke of Cambridge’s birthday today! 🎂 🎈”

Two more images were released of the gorgeous family later in the day.

Then came several two more glorious images in celebration of Father’s Day in the UK.

Prince William and Charles were seen in the first image sharing a sweet embrace – the photo in question was again snapped by Duchess Catherine last December.

In the second pic, a young Kate is seen with her own father, Michael Middleton.

“Happy Father’s Day!” The Palace shared.

For the special day in the UK, other members of the royal family also posted their own snaps to celebrate.

Prince Charles shared two sweet pictures – the first with his own dad, Prince Philip, taken when he was a baby in 1951.

The Queen and Princess Anne are also seen in the special snap.

In the second snap, Charles and his sons Harry smile for the cameras during the 2004 Polo Cup at Cirencester Park.

“Whether you are a Father, a Dad, a Daddy or a Pa, wishing you a Happy Father’s Day!” The caption read.

Buckingham Palace also shared a candid Instagram carousel with several beautiful older images of the family.

“Wishing you all a happy #fathersday 📷Here’s a collection of photographs from the #RoyalArchives of The Duke of Edinburgh with his children,” the Palace wrote.
