Fans couldn’t get enough of the sweet picture.
One person said: “What a marvellous photo of such a clear bond between father and son!”
Another wrote: “Best photo I’ve seen of them together. Lovely photo.”
A third added: “This picture is just soooo sweet.”
A special day for the Royal Family
Meanwhile, a new photo of Prince William and his three children has been released today.
The snap shows William cuddling Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis on a swing.
Alongside the family photo, it read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new picture of The Duke with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis ahead of The Duke’s birthday tomorrow.”
Meanwhile, a royal expert claimed William’s birthday will be “tinged with sadness” because Diana won’t be there to celebrate with him.
Expert Katie Nicholl told OK! Magazine: “William misses his mother. It must be emotional for him that she’s not here to share this.
“She’s still a significant part of his life so inevitably, on his birthday, his thoughts will be with her.”
The royal is also facing spending Father’s Day away from his dad, Prince Charles, because of lockdown.
She added: “I would think it’s very upsetting for William knowing that it pains his father not to see them.”
Charles had been isolating at the royal Balmoral estate with his wife Camilla.
