Kate Middleton Releases New Joy-Filled Photo She Took of Prince William Leaping in the Air with Their 3 Kids

To say that it’s been a busy week for the royals is an understatement. I’m talking Trooping the Colour (with Princess Catherine’s return to the public eye and Prince Louis’s faces), a Father’s Day photo from the Waleses featuring all three kids, Royal Ascot where Fergie’s dress stole the show and Prince William saving the day for his mother-in-law…the list goes on.

And now, the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, has given us a brand-new photo of her family (one that she took herself I might add) along with a birthday message to her hubby.

Today, June 21, happens to be the Prince of Wales’s 42nd birthday and the first tribute came from his wife in the form of a social media post. The photo (above) shows Will leaping joyfully into the air alongside their three kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Alongside the image taken by Catherine, a personal message read, “Happy birthday Papa, we all love you so much!”

How do I know the message came straight from the princess herself? It was signed with her initial, “C,” along with an “x” likely indicating a kiss. (Cute, Catherine.)

As I said, this week has been a busy one, particularly for the Wales fam. This is actually the second beach photo to be released featuring Will, George, Char and Louis. For Father’s Day, the couple shared another image on Instagram showing the four royals hugging and looking away from the camera.

The message read, “We love you, Papa. Happy Father’s Day.” Only this time, the message was signed by the two young princes and the young princess with their personal initials, “G, C & L.”

When the royals decide to come back from a “break,” they really know how to make headlines…
