The Royal Family has released a new portrait of Prince William and his children to mark this year's Father's Day.

The adorable photo shows a beaming Duke of Cambridge posing alongside his three children - eight-year-old Prince George, seven year-old Princess Charlotte, and four-year-old Prince Louis - during a family trip to Jordan last year.

A relaxed-looking Prince William, who turns 40 next week, can be seen with his arms around his two oldest children, as the ever-playful Prince Louis sits on his shoulders.

And all four look incredibly happy to be smiling for camera.

The image was released with the following short statement from Kensington Palace:

"To mark Father’s Day tomorrow, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of The Duke, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis."

The image was also shared on the official Instagram account for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with the caption: "Wishing a Happy Father’s Day to fathers and grandfathers across the world today!"

Smiling in front of a rocky landscape, the snap was captured last autumn during a family trip to Jordan. Per BBC News, Catherine once spent three years living in the country as a child when her father worked for British Airways in Amman.

Fans of the Royal Family were quick to flood the image with praise, with one Instagram user commenting: "Gorgeous photo! Louis is just adorable."

Another added: "Happy Father’s Day William. You have a lovely little family."

A third even pointed out how Prince William and his children all share the "same beautiful smile".

A similar photo - with the Duchess of Cambridge included - was shared back in December as the family's official Christmas card.

Prince William and the children can all be seen wearing the same outfit, so it is believed to have been taken on the same day as the recently released photo.

Happy Father's Day to all - as we celebrate father figures all over the world, past and present.
