Prince William has hit the big 4-0 and in typical royal fashion, he was showered with birthday wishes, throwback photos and more by his family on their social media accounts.
William’s father, Prince Charles, and his stepmother, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, kicked it off with an adorable slideshow of images of William as a baby along with a few snaps of him as a teenager and then an adult.
The Royal Family’s official Twitter also sent out a heartwarming birthday thread for the future king that detailed key events in the prince’s life, beginning with his birth.
“Prince William Arthur Philip Louis is the elder son of The Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales. He was born at 9.03 pm on 21 June 1982, at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London,” the tweet began. It then went on to highlight some of his more prominent moments such as when he graduated from university, his marriage and his charitable works.
