Buckingham Palace has celebrated Prince William's birthday with a cute picture of the King and Prince.

The picture, from the Royal Collection Trust, was posted on social media by Buckingham Palace.

The Prince of Wales is celebrating his 42nd birthday just one day after watching England’s disappointing Euro 2024 draw against Denmark with King Frederick of Denmark.

William has faced a challenging 12 months with both his wife the Princess of Wales and father the King diagnosed with cancer.

Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales was born second in line to the throne at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, at 9.03pm on June 21, 1982. He weighed 7lb 1 1/2oz and was the first-born son of the then-Prince and the Princess of Wales.

At just nine months old, he accompanied his parents on a six-week official visit to Australia and New Zealand, which was a break from tradition with royal babies usually left at home in the care of nannies.

His mother Diana, who separated from the then-Prince of Wales in 1992, died in a car crash in Paris in 1997. William was just 15 and his brother Prince Harry 12, and the boys walked behind the princess’s coffin during a funeral procession through London.

The prince met Kate Middleton at St Andrews University in Fife, and the pair married at Westminster Abbey in 2011 after dating for more than eight years.

His other key focuses include raising mental health awareness, and the Earthshot Prize, his £50million environmental competition to find solutions to help the planet.
