‘We love you, Papa’: Royal children wish Prince William a happy Father’s Day

Prince William has posted a picture of him and his father, King Charles, playing football to mark Father’s Day.

In the photograph, the young prince smiles as he and the future monarch stand in a garden.

The picture of the two future kings was taken on 12 June, 1984 in the gardens of Kensington Palace.

Later that same year William would gain a younger brother, with the Duke of Sussex born in September.

As well as marking Father’s Day, the football-themed image is perhaps a nod to England’s opening match in the Euros, which takes place on Sunday night.

It comes a day after the pair were involved in the Trooping of the Colour festivities at Buckingham Palace on Saturday.

The Prince of Wales was joined by his wife, Princess Kate – her first public appearance since the announcement of her cancer diagnosis.
