In the early 2000s, Prince William was the most enviable young groom in the world – literally all the teenage girls on the planet dreamed of him and followed his life. However, the years flew by unnoticed, and the handsome young man, second in line to the British throne, became a husband, a father of many children and the hope of the crown. Today he celebrates a round date – 40 years.
The first to congratulate the Duke of Cambridge was his 73-year-old father, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla of Cornwall, who recently gave a big candid interview with British Vogue. They published on their official royal blog a series of previously unknown photographs showing William both as a toddler and as a mature man.

Following the congratulations appeared in the official account of William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. The post also contains archival photographs of the Prince and Her Majesty together.
