Cambridge children wish William happy Father’s day

A new photograph of the Prince of Wales and his three children taken by the Princess of Wales has been released as a Father’s Day tribute.

The three youngsters declared: “We love you, Papa. Happy Father’s Day” in a personally-signed social media post.

Kensington Palace said Kate’s picture of William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis was taken on the Norfolk coast last month.

The post was the first time a message from the three children has been posted on the family’s social media accounts.

Earlier, the Prince of Wales marked Father’s Day with a photo of him and King Charles playing football, with the message “Happy Father’s Day, Pa.”

The social media post, personally signed by William, showed the smiling prince as an almost two-year-old toddler, together with Charles Kensington Palace gardens.

William sported short dungarees and a stripey blue top and the King in a grey double-breasted suit kicking a small football, in the image taken on June 12 1984, just months before Harry would be born in September.

It comes after Kate mader her first public appearance of the year on Saturday, for Charles’s official birthday celebrations.

The Princess of Wales rode to the event in a carriage with her children for the traditional Trooping the Colour ceremony.

William, the Princess Royal, and the Duke of Edinburgh were on horseback, while the King also rode in a carriage with the Queen, a departure from last year’s horseback entry, due to his illness.

Kate and members of the Royal Family were cheered when they were first spotted in The Mall by the lkarge crowds that had gathered for the event.

Both Kate and Charles have thanked the public for their support after going public with their illnesses, with Kate saying she had been “blown away” by the “kind messages” that had made a “world of difference to William and me and has helped us both through some of the harder times”.

Kate was initially admitted to hospital for abdominal surgery on January 16 and at the time her condition was thought to be non-cancerous, but cancer was found following the successful operation.

Charles was admitted to hospital just days after Kate, also for a procedure deemed unrelated to cancer. In February, Buckingham Palace confirmed that he had been diagnosed with a form of cancer, which is not prostate cancer, that was discovered while the King was being treated at the private London Clinic for an enlarged prostate.

Charles initially postponed public-facing duties but resumed at the end of April, speaking of his “shock” at being diagnosed with cancer as he met patients during a visit to University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre in central London.
