The Princess of Wales has revealed a fun new family portrait of the Prince of Wales and their three children, which she shared in honour of Prince William's birthday on Friday (21 June).

Kate posted a joyful photograph of Prince William hand in hand with Princess Charlotte and Princes George and Louis as they leap from a hill on a sandy beach. The image captures the family grinning happily in midair as they jump, wearing shorts and summery beach clothes.

The Princess of Wales posted the image to the official Instagram page she shares with her husband. She included a personal message to Prince William on behalf of her and their family, to mark his 42nd birthday.

"Happy birthday Papa, we all love you so much! Cx" she wrote in a caption alongside the photograph.

Earlier this month, another photograph of Prince William and the children, presumably taken at the same beachside photoshoot, was shared across the couple's social media accounts.

In this case, the four stand arm in arm looking out to sea. This time, the message accompanying the image is signed from Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

"We love you, Papa. Happy Father’s Day 💕 G, C & L" read the caption.

The Princess of Wales had taken a back seat recently from public appearances while she undergoes treatment, but she was able to attend The King's Birthday Parade over the weekend, alongside Prince William and their children.
