The Royal family’s sweet birthday tributes to the Queen

·2-min read

It's the Queen's 96th birthday today. And the Royal family have been taking to social media to share the cutest messages and photos as a tribute to her Majesty on her birthday.

First up, was the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who shared two glorious photos on their Instagram account this morning. One of Prince William and Kate Middleton with the Queen, and another of the Queen with a baby Prince Louis on her lap, sitting beside her late husband Prince Philip and surrounded by seven of their great grandchildren. The post has already racked up more than 430,000 likes, so Royal fans are clearly delighted.

The caption reads: "Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 96th birthday today! An inspiration to so many across the UK, the Commonwealth and the world, it’s particularly special to be celebrating in this #PlatinumJubilee year."

And fans are jumping into the comments to share their own birthday messages, "I wish her majesty the queen a wonderful birthday🌼best wishes from switzerland" says one. And: "The truly loyal and trustworthy companions that Her Majesty needs! Happy birthday 🎂" reads another, which perhaps also contains a hidden message to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who have yet to post any birthday tributes.

Clarence House Insta account, AKA Prince Charles and Camilla, followed quickly after. They have shared five photos of various Royal moments over the decades, either with the Queen on her own or alongside the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The caption reads: "Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a particularly special 96th birthday today, as we celebrate her Platinum Jubilee year. 🎊🎈" We're really loving the use of emojis here.

We're also enjoying the fan comments underneath, rating which photo they love the most: "Lovely pics! Especially #3. A very Happy Birthday to Her Majesty, the Queen!! 🥂🍾"

We reckon scroll straight to the last photo #5, as we're totally here for the Queen's huge cheesy grin as she stands alongside Camilla. She just looks so happy.

We're keeping our eyes peeled to see if any other members of the family post later on today. Looking at you, @archewell_hm, the Instagram account of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Prince Harry recently opened up about his private meeting with the Queen, saying that it was "so great to see her."
