On Sunday, in honor of Father’s Day, King Charles III paid tribute to his sons Prince William and Prince Harry.
The monarch’s social media team posted a trio of moving images on Instagram to commemorate the occasion. Among the images, His Majesty shared a touching picture of him laughing and having fun with his late father, Prince Philip.
Charles also posted a picture of the late Bruce Shand, the father of Queen Camilla, along with a happy picture of himself hiking on the Balmoral Estate with young Princes Harry and William.
Prince Charles can be seen in the picture sporting a lime-green Scottish kilt, matching green socks that reach his knees, and a green sweater. In the meantime, Prince William and Prince Harry matched in stone-colored pants and blue shirts.
The picture shows a priceless moment of closeness between the royals and emphasizes the King’s endearing father-son bond with both Prince Harry and Prince William.
“To Dads everywhere, we wish you a special Father’s Day today,” the caption said.
Fans of the royal family flooded the comments section with numerous kind words. “Happy Father’s Day to his majesty,” one follower wrote, “[clapping emoji] His dedication to his boys and the country is amazing,” and another added, “I LOVE these pictures! I wish you a happy Father’s Day.
A fourth royal admirer added: “Happy Father’s Day, these photos must bring back wonderful memories for the Royal Family!” A third royal admirer said: “Aw the picture with Harry,” and a fourth added: “Aw the picture with Harry!”
Following his birthday parade at Trooping the Colour, the King paid a sweet visual homage.
Charles looked sharp in his military red uniform during the historic event, which also marked the first time a monarch has ridden on horseback since the late Queen Elizabeth II in 1986.
The Welsh Guards’ tunic and Queen Elizabeth II’s cypher were worn by the King, who served as the Colonel in Chief of the Regiments of the Household Division.
Princess Anne, the Senior Colonel of the Household Division, the Prince of Wales, and—for the first time—the Duke of Edinburgh participated in the parade alongside Charles.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, the Princess of Wales, and Queen Camilla were also present. For the first time since they began serving in their new military capacities in December 2022, Camilla and Kate attended the event.
While Kate is the Irish Guards’ Colonel, Camilla is the Grenadier Guards’ Colonel. To reflect their vital military roles, both royal ladies selected stunning Trooping attire.
The Grenadier Guards uniform served as inspiration for the red silk coat dress worn by the Queen, which exuded elegance. Princess Kate, meanwhile, radiated royalty in an eye-catching, emerald-green coat dress created by Paris-based designer Andrew Gn.
