Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth have paid tribute to Prince William on his milestone birthday.

Prince Charles has led tributes to his son Prince William on his 40th birthday.

The second in line to the British throne celebrates the milestone today (21.06.22), and his father - who also has Prince Harry, 37, with the late Diana, Princess of Wales - and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were among those sending their well-wishes to the future king.

A tweet on the Clarence House Twitter account read: "Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very happy 40th birthday!"

The note was accompanied by a series of pictures of William over the years, including a sweet black-and-white snap of his 73-year-old father holding his firstborn as a newborn.

Queen Elizabeth also shared a message via the official Royal Family page, along with several facts about her grandson.

The first tweet began: "Happy Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge!"

"He was born at 9.03pm on 21 June 1982, at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London. A bulletin, placed on the gates of Buckingham Palace announced that he weighed 7lb 1 1/2 oz."
