It's a very special day in the Cambridge household today – as Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is celebrating turning the big 4-0. His wife, Kate Middleton, turned 40 earlier this year too back in January.

As has become custom, William's royal family have posted some sweet birthday tributes to him on social media, with the Queen's official Instagram account recalling the very special day of his birth – and how it was announced to the excited public.

Alongside a series of images of Prince William (many also featuring his grandmother, the Queen) throughout the years, the Royal Family account added: "Happy 40th Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge! 🥳 Prince William Arthur Philip Louis is the elder son of The Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales. He was born at 9.03pm on 21 June 1982, at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London. A bulletin, placed on the gates of Buckingham Palace announced that he weighed 7lb 1 1/2 oz."

William's father, Prince Charles, and stepmother, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, also shared a carousel of images showing the two future kings side by side from Prince William's childhood to the present day.

A celebratory message was also featured in the post, reading, "Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very happy 40th birthday! 🎂🎈⬅️ Swipe through the decades!"

We're sure Prince William has some fun plans lined up with his family today and will be receiving many more well wishes from them offline too, including from those who don't have public social media accounts such as Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and the Wessexes.

Happy birthday to you, Wills!
