Out with the queen and in with Prince William!
We're not trying to stage a royal coup, here -- just celebrating some b-days! Fresh off Queen Elizabeth's super sweet 90, her grandson, the Duke of Cambridge, turned 34 on Tuesday. William's birthday week kicked off with the England vs. Slovakia Euro 2016 soccer match in Saint-Etienne, France, on Monday, where he made adorable faces like this!
(FYI, the game ended with a 0 - 0 tie, so, could have been a better birthday present, could have been worse.)
When it comes to social media birthday shout outs, William is no Kardashian, but he did receive a sweet tweet from Buckingham Palace, who wrote, "Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very Happy Birthday today! #HappyBirthdayHRH"
Aww! That was nice of you, Buckingham Palace!
As for how he will celebrate his actual big day, the duke reportedly traveled home on Tuesday where he will spend his birthday "privately," according to People.
William has really been upping his adorableness lately, like when he met with dads and their children ahead of Father's Day to talk mental health and the father of two opened up about his own feelings:
Or when he tried on this pair of virtual reality goggles:
But there are plenty of other reasons we've been rooting for him, besides how stand up a lad he is and how he looks in a pair of virtual reality goggles. He also cleaned up at a recent polo match:
And was the first royal to appear on the cover of an LGBT magazine:
"No one should be bullied for their sexuality. Don't put up with it. Be proud of the person you are." The Duke of Cambridge is on the cover of the next issue of @attitudemag speaking out against bullying. In early May 2016, His Royal Highness met with a group of young LGBT people convened by @attitudemag at Kensington Palace to listen to their experiences of bullying, and the mental health impacts it can have. The fight against bullying is a key priority of The Duke's work. His Royal Highness recently established a taskforce on the prevention of cyberbullying, and is leading the Heads Together campaign on mental health and wellbeing along with The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry http://bit.ly/24Q6wYH
But the Duke's best moment, hands down, was when he attended the Trooping the Colour parade -- where Princess Charlotte made her first public appearance -- and was scolded by the queen. Check out the hilarious moment in the video below.
