Prince William's extra special Father's Day

Prince William will be celebrating his most special Father's Day to date this Sunday, 21 June. The royal will not only be spending the significant day with his son Prince George and newborn daughter Princess Charlotte, he will also be blowing out the 33 candles on his birthday cake.

This Sunday marks the Prince's second Father's Day, but first as a dad-of-two, following Princess Charlotte's birth on 2 May. And his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, neé Kate Middleton, will probably aim to make it twice as special as last time.

Royal watchers will remember William's first Father's Day, which he spent taking part in a charity polo match, cheered on by his son George and Kate.

It was then that playful George was seen taking his first tentative steps, holding on to his mum's hands – before showing off his walking skills in his first official solo portrait, released for his first birthday on 19 July.

The day will also hold extra significance for William's in-laws, Michael and Carole Middleton, who mark their 35th wedding anniversary on 21 June. It is not known if the families will get together for a joint celebration, but it will no doubt be unforgettable.

William and Kate's private celebrations will be a stark contrast from last weekends, when the couple took Prince George to his first Trooping the Colour parade on Saturday and to his second polo match on Sunday.

George charmed the crowds at the Trooping the Colour parade. Wearing the same light blue outfit that Prince William wore at Her Majesty's Birthday Parade in 1984, the 23-month-old appeared in the arms of his father, looking delighted to be a part of the royal action.

The youngster gave an adorable wave at the throngs of royal fans who had gathered at the Palace's gates for the grand occasion, causing a huge roar of delight.

The following day, the little Prince stole the show at a polo match in Gloucestershire as he turned the sports field into his own personal playground.
