As royal fans, getting any glimpse into the lives of those belonging to the House of Windsor is always exciting. That’s why we were overjoyed to open Instagram and come across a photo that we can only describe as pure heaven.
Prince Charles, AKA the Prince of Wales, AKA future King and doting grandfather, is ringing in his 71st birthday — and the royal family have made it their mission to ensure he is feeling the love with some beautiful tributes across social media.
In what was a very exciting move from Prince Harry and Meghan, the pair decided to celebrate the Prince’s birthday by sharing a brand new picture of baby Archie that had not been seen by the public.
The gorgeous snap, which was taken on the day of Archie’s christening back in July, features the doting grandfather looking at his new grandson with an expression of wonder on his face.
Meanwhile, Harry is seen cradling his newborn son with a satisfied grin — too cute!
The royals also added a sweet caption to the brand new picture, writing, “Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales — Sir, Pa, Grandpa!”
Harry and Meghan’s fans flocked to the picture to share their excitement and love for the happy occasion.
One wrote, “Happy Birthday! What a Great picture! Archie looks adorable. 2 proud Papas.” Another said, “Happiest of Birthday’s to HRH Prince Charles. What an absolutely wonderful photo of grandfather, father and son ?.”
We can’t help but agree!
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate also added their well wishes to the beloved father and grandfather.
Taking to their own Instagram account, Kensington Royal, the pair shared a series of gorgeous images of Charles with various members of their family.
The first image, taken for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebrations last year, is a gorgeous candid shot of him playing with young Prince Louis as he is held by mom, Kate. In the second, the Prince of Wales is seen laughing gleefully next to his son William.
And in a very special third snap, the proud dad is seen standing next to his two sons William and Harry.
Charles is currently spending his birthday in India, where he is undertaking a short royal tour.
Next up, he will travel to New Zealand, where he and wife Duchess Camilla will partake in various engagements and see different parts of the country. This will mark their second visit to the South Pacific country in the last four years.
