Over on Queen Elizabeth II's page for The Royal Family, the well wishes read, "Happy Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge! As the second in line to the throne turns 40, learn more about His Royal Highness."
The post also shared fun facts about William, including his official birth time, university accolades, and family life. "His Royal Highness now undertakes a number of charitable activities and projects, with a particular focus on the environment, young people and mental health," the thread of info on William concluded.
"Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very Happy Birthday!" a message on The Queen's Green Canopy page read. "HRH attended the illumination of the Tree of #Trees at Buckingham Palace during the #PlatinumJubilee weekend celebrations The Duke met schoolchildren who have taken part in the #queensgreencanopy RFS Junior Forester Award."
Ahead of his milestone birthday, William shared some information on a current philanthropic endeavor he's working on with The Big Issue. According to the Twitter bio for The Big Issue, it is "a social enterprise and weekly magazine sold by homeless or vulnerably housed people."
William shared, "I have always believed in using my platform to help bring attention and action to those who are struggling and I commit to doing what I can to shine a spotlight on this solvable issue not just today, but in the months and years to come."

Recalling an impactful moment he had with his mother, the late Princess Diana, as a kid, William added, "I was eleven when I first visited @PassageCharity with my mother and since then, homelessness has stuck with me as an issue I want to fight for."
On Sunday, William shared a photo with his three children -- Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, -- in honor of Father's Day in the U.S.
