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!

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"

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.

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:

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.
