Father’s Day provided an opportunity for the British royal family to share intimate and meaningful moments, highlighting the significance of paternal roles and emphasizing the strong bonds within the family.
Joining in the festivities on Sunday, June 18, the British royal family commemorated the occasion by sharing heartfelt and poignant moments.
Prince William Father’s Day Pics
Prince William, eager to be part of the celebration, took to his Instagram account to reveal two unpublished photographs featuring himself and his three children: George, aged 9, Charlotte, aged 8, and Louis, aged 5.
In these captivating snapshots, the four royal family members exuded radiance while donning coordinated ensembles primarily in shades of blue and white.
Their relaxed smiles portrayed a profound sense of companionship and delight.
One of the images captured Prince George and Princess Charlotte redirecting their gaze toward their father while Prince Louis beamed directly at the camera, tenderly embracing his father from behind.
In the other photograph, they all posed seated, emanating warmth and unity as they shared a heartfelt connection with the lens.
A touching nod to Elizabeth II
What makes these photographs particularly poignant is the subtle yet significant detail that frames the scenes: the family members are seated on a bench that was installed at Windsor in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday on April 19, 2016.
This thoughtful nod to their great-grandmother adds an extra layer of symbolism and reinforces the profound familial ties portrayed in the images.
The talented photographer and family friend Millie Pilkington captured these memorable snapshots earlier this year at Windsor Estate.

It is likely that these images were taken during the same session as the ones featuring Prince Louis in a wheelbarrow, commemorating his fifth birthday in April.
Notably, Prince Louis is seen wearing the same endearing outfit: a Fair Isle sweater by Lallie London, layered over a white and blue plaid shirt with a collar.
Emulating his father’s style, Prince George opted for a shirt and jeans, while Princess Charlotte showcased a charmingly simple daisy-print dress from Rachel Riley London, a favorite children’s designer of her mother, Kate Middleton.
King Charles Father’s Day Photos
King Charles III also took the opportunity to celebrate Father’s Day by sharing his cherished moments.
Charles chose to unveil two images—one featuring himself alongside his sons, William and Harry, during their teenage years, and another paying tribute to his late father, the Duke of Edinburgh. In the latter image, both father and son exchanged knowing glances, their smiles reflecting a deep bond.
