Prince Charles has marked his son Prince William's 39th birthday today by sharing an archive photo of the Prince of Wales cradling his oldest child as a baby.
A message was posted on Clarence House, the prince's official social media accounts wishing the duke "a very Happy Birthday".
The black and white image features Charles in December 1982 gazing down at his six-month-old son as he holds him on his lap at Kensington Palace.
Kensington Palace thanked those who had sent messages to the duke, tweeting: "Thank you for all the birthday wishes and kind messages."
Prince Charles and William were also pictured with the Duchess of Cornwall at the opening of the Duke of Sussex's first-ever Invictus Games in 2014, but Harry did not feature in the image.
The message on the monarchy's official Twitter account read: "Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very Happy Birthday today! #HappyBirthdayHRH."
Shared photographs included the duke with the Duchess of Cambridge and their children on the Buckingham Palace balcony, and also William in military uniform.
William appeared at a local running event on the Sandringham estate with his two eldest children on Father's Day. Pictures showed the duke, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte gathering around a microphone to count down the start of the race, and waving at the runners.
George and Charlotte were photographed wearing shorts and trainers, while the duke was dressed in a blue shirt and a pair of navy chinos.
Run Sandringham welcomed hundreds of runners who were competing in either a half marathon, a 5K, or a community mile to raise money for charity.
