On Friday, the heir to the British throne and Duke of Cambridge, Prince William celebrated his 37th birthday, and as a way to celebrate, Kensington Palace released a throwback picture of the royal. The blast from the past photo had a caption that read: “Thank you, everyone, for your lovely wishes on The Duke of Cambridge’s birthday!” The lovely photo sees William smiling at the camera during a trip to Tanzania from October.
The official royal family Twitter account also posted a collage of pictures with the Queen, and wrote: “Happy Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge! #HappyBirthdayHRH.” The message continued: “The Duke of Cambridge is second in line to the throne. His Royal Highness undertakes a number of charitable activities and projects, and carries out public and official duties in support of The Queen, in the UK and overseas, alongside The Duchess of Cambridge.”
We have no leaked details or news on how the Prince will be celebrating his 37th birthday, but it is most likely that he will be spending it with his wife Kate and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The last time we saw the Prince was at the Royal Ascot on Tuesday, where he and lots of other royals went to the annual horse race all dressed up in top hats and suits.
He made his entrance in a carriage which he shared with his wife Kate, his father Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla. All four royals were in relaxed spirits and looked as if they had a great time, chatting the day away.
Earlier this week we got the news that Prince William and Kate Middleton have officially split from their charity with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. This might be the last step in the division of the couples’ duties, with Harry and Meghan breaking away from the Royal Foundation. Prince William and Kate will remain with the original charity, which from now on will the known as the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The Royal Foundation has stated that this decision came after a conclusion of a review into its structure. They also said that the couples will continue to work together in the future, on projects such as the Heads Together mental health campaign.
