A radiant Prince William has been pictured with his three children in a photo released by Kensington Palace to mark Father’s Day.

The photograph shows Princess Charlotte and Prince George on either side of their father, smiling up at him, with the youngest sibling Prince Louis hugging William on his shoulders from behind.

The children and their father are all dressed in blue, with George, nine, and William, 40, both in trousers and casual shirts.

Louis, five, is his typically excitable self and is beaming in a blue jumper, while his brother and sister appear more relaxed.

Charlotte, who turned eight last month, is dressed in a blue floral printed dress and white cardigan.

All five members of the family were involved in Saturday’s Trooping the Colour, the first of King Charles’ reign.
