The Queen Celebrates Prince William's 40th Birthday With Touching Photo

The Queen marked The
Duke of Cambridge’s milestone 40th birthday with a joyous photo of her
grandson beaming from ear to ear.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday,
the royal family’s verified account shared a candid snap along with the
caption: “As the second in line to the throne turns 40, learn more about
His Royal Highness.” Her Majesty followed this up with eight additional
photos taken at various stages in Prince William’s life.

Each throwback picture was
accompanied by an insightful fact giving fans the chance to brush up on their
royal knowledge.

In one candid photo Diana,
Princess of Wales could be seen cradling a newborn Prince William as they posed
for press photos. The photo caption read: “He was born at 9.03pm on 21
June 1982, at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London.”

Other photos highlighted the
Duke’s remarkable life achievements from his graduation at St Andrew’s
University in June 2005, to his enchanting wedding to Kate Middleton at
Westminster Abbey in April 2011.

Royal fans were quick to
inundate the comments section with an abundance of upbeat birthday tributes,
with one writing: “William is a wonderful asset to The Royal Family, just
love how humble he is.”

Another added: “Happy
Birthday Prince William, best wishes, and may God bless you. Thank you for your
contribution to make the world a better place.” A third remarked: “I
remember the day he was born. What an amazing man he’s become. Many happy
returns Prince William.” A fourth penned: “Love this thread so
much!!! Happiest of birthdays to our future King- we love you Wills!”

The post comes after Prince
William marked his big day by throwing his support behind The Big Issue with an
exclusive written piece for the social enterprise’s magazine. He also joined
vendor Dave Martin, 60, to sell copies of the magazine on the streets of west
London.

He penned: “I was 11 when
I first visited a homeless shelter with my mother, who in her own inimitable
style was determined to shine a light on an overlooked, misunderstood
problem.”

The Duke continued: “I
wanted to experience the other side and see what it was like to be a Big Issue
vendor. My time was truly eye-opening.

“I have always believed
in using my platform to help tell those stories and to bring attention and
action to those who are struggling. I plan to do that now I’m turning 40, even
more than I have in the past. So, for my part, I commit to continue doing what
I can to shine a spotlight on this solvable issue not just today, but in the
months and years to come.”
