Prince William's children have dedicated a post to their father on Father's Day, marking their first personal social media post ever.

On Sunday, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis used a touching photo taken by their mom Kate Middleton to wish their dad a happy Father’s Day.

The snapshot, which was taken on a beach by the royal, shows her three children standing and hugging her husband while staring out at the blue sea.

“We love you, Papa. Happy Father’s Day G, C & L,” read the caption on the Prince and Princess of Wales’ official social media accounts, including X, where it received a strong response from royal family fans.

Hundreds of comments poured in.

"Crying... what a beautiful photo taken by Catherine..." wrote one user, while another added: "Love this. Great photo. My father was also my Papa. Much missed."

A third also commented: "You have such a beautiful family Prince William, enjoy them and your day!!"

Prince William also published a Father's Day post of his own dedicated to his own father, King Charles III.

"Happy Father’s Day, Pa. W," he wrote in a caption alongside a photo of him as a toddler while his father smiles fondly down at him.

Have a look at the post below:

X users decided to comment their other favorite photos of the pair underneath, making for a wholesome section under the Father's Day tribute.

"Love it - and here's the updated version," wrote this user alongside a more recent photo of the father-and-son-duo.

"A lovely picture of Prince William with his father King Charles," another added.

The posts come a few months after King Charles revealed that he was battling an unnamed cancer.

Buckingham Palace announced the news on February 5, saying in a statement: "During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.

"His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual."

The King also shared a heartfelt statement of his own just a few days later, addressing his diagnosis and the reaction he has received since going public.

"I would like to express my most heartfelt thanks for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received in recent days," he said alongside a picture of him shaking hands with a medical professional.


"As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement."

The monarch continued: "It is equally heartening to hear how sharing my own diagnosis has helped promote public understanding and shine a light on the work of all those organizations which support cancer patients and their families across the UK and wider world.

"My lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is all the greater as a result of my own personal experience," he added.
