Prince William releases adorable new photo for Father’s Day

He will turn 40 within days, but this charming picture — released to coincide with Father’s Day in the UK — shows Prince William already has all the gifts he could ever want.

Taken during a family holiday to Jordan, it shows William sitting between Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, now 7, with his youngest, Prince Louis, now 4, perched on his shoulders. He beams contentedly as his children roar with laughter.

William will celebrate his milestone birthday on Tuesday as he and wife Kate prepare to announce a move to Windsor.

This image differs from recent official photographs in that it was not taken by the Duchess of Cambridge, a keen amateur photographer. Instead, Kensington Palace said the delightful portrait was captured by a private, unnamed photographer during a getaway last autumn.

A similar image of the Cambridges, seemingly taken on the same day and showing Kate in a khaki green dress and William in an olive shirt and beige shorts, was used for the family’s most recent Christmas card.

This portrait, however, offers a more informal, relaxed view of family life. While the exact location has not been revealed, the picturesque sandstone backdrop suggests it may have been taken in Petra, the ancient archaeological site in Jordan.
