The image, which was shared on the Royal Family’s official Twitter account, showed the King sharing a nice moment with his son, William, who looks to be helping his father straighten his Coronation attire.
The statement for the future King follows a recent social media precedent in which only working royals received a public birthday message.
It was thought to have been implemented last year, with Princess Beatrice, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle now losing out on public birthday messages.
William’s birthday photograph brilliantly highlights his unique role at the May 6 Coronation ceremony, where he became the only person to execute the act of paying “homage” to the King.
According to The Sunday Times, Charles abandoned the custom of all royal dukes kneeling to “pay homage” before touching the crown and kissing the king on the right cheek.
“I, William, Prince of Wales, pledge my loyalty to you, and faith and truth I will bear unto you, as your liege man of life and limb,” Prince William stated before kissing the King on the cheek. So help me God.”
On June 21, 1982, the King and his first wife, the late Princess Diana, brought their first son into the world.
As the monarch’s eldest son, William is next in line to claim the throne, with his three children close behind.
In an interview last weekend, William pledged to “end homelessness” and disclosed plans to develop social housing on his private estate.
To combat the problem, William intends to announce a “really big project,” which is still under wraps and will be released later this month.
Speaking about the project, William told the Times that he was looking forward to the big announcement. “I’m really excited,” he said. I’ve been waiting for the right time to do this.”
To commemorate Father’s Day, the Royal Family’s Twitter account shared a charming photo of the King and his two kids. To commemorate the occasion, Kensington Palace released two photos of William with his three children.
