Here's How Royal Dad of Three Prince William Is Spending Father's Day

The Cambridges made their most recent appearance as a family of five just last weekend at Trooping the Colour, the Queen's birthday celebrations

Prince William is spending his Father’s Day like dads all around the world: with his family.

The royal dad of three — Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1 — will be “spending Farther’s Day privately with his family,” a palace source tells PEOPLE.

The Cambridges made their most recent appearance as a family of five last weekend at Trooping the Colour, the Queen’s annual birthday celebration. They stood together on the famous balcony of Buckingham Palace, with Prince Louis (and his royal wave!) stealing the show during his Trooping the Colour debut.

Though Louis started in the arms of Kate Middleton, he adorably reached for his father to hold him as they watched the flypast.

Louis was featured in the family’s Father’s Day Instagram post, which was simply captioned, “Happy Father’s Day!” In a second photo in the post, William walked alongside his father, Prince Charles, 70, in his Royal Air Force pilot uniform.

William has recently opened up about life as a dad to three young children.

Although Prince William isn’t an expert at hairstyling — he’s recently said doing ponytails on Charlotte is a “nightmare” — he does recognize his daughter’s talent for dancing. William revealed that dancing is Princess Charlotte’s favorite hobby in March 2018.

“My daughter Charlotte loves dancing,” he proudly told attendees at a Commonwealth Day reception.

To most, Prince William is known as “His Royal Highness,” but to Prince George, he’s simply “Pops.”

After Kate and William’s visit to Leicester in November, a local said: “Kate said that William was playing football with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?’ ”

William is now sharing the joys of fatherhood with his younger brother Prince Harry, who welcomed his son Archie on May 6.

The royal told reporters that he was “absolutely thrilled” about the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, adding he was “very pleased to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivationsociety that is parenting!”
