Today, royal family followers have seen their social media feeds overflowing with shots of Kate Middleton, with everyone from Queen Elizabeth to the National Portrait Gallery celebrating the duchess on her 40th birthday.
Of course, as one of Prince Charles's two daughters-in-law, it makes sense that he and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, made their own tribute to Middleton on their Instagram account. The pair celebrated the Duchess of Cambridge with a series of intimate photos on the official Clarence House page.
The first shows the duchess and Prince Charles engaged in a friendly conversation while at the Royal British Legion's Festival of Remembrance last November at the Royal Albert Hall. This is followed by a snap of Middleton and Bowles, from when they attended the Big Jubilee Lunch with Queen Elizabeth back in June (and the queen notably attempted to cut a cake with a sword). Finally, the slideshow concludes with an up-close portrait of Middleton.
The caption reads, “Wishing The Duchess of Cambridge a very happy 40th birthday today!”
