It is understood the Queen plans to throw a joint 40th birthday party for her grandson and his wife Kate Middleton after she was forced to cancel her celebrations due to a surge of COVID-19 cases earlier this year.

The couple were given the go-ahead to throw the party at the Queen’s Windsor Castle home or Sandringham Estate later in the summer to “celebrate their landmark birthdays in style”, royal sources told The Mirror.

Prince Charles was the first to wish his son a happy birthday.

“Wishing the Duke of Cambridge a very happy 40th birthday,” the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall tweeted alongside photos of the Duke throughout the years.

One of the photos included a sweet snap of the father and son duo in their English country gear.

Charles looked very smitten next to William, who had his arms wrapped around his father.

The Queen also shared several photos of the Duke as she wished her grandson a happy birthday.

“Happy Birthday to the Duke of Cambridge!” the Royal Family tweeted.

“As the second in line to the throne turns 40, learn more about His Royal Highness.”

The Royal Family’s social media page listed Prince William’s highlights and achievements throughout the year, including his graduation from St Andrew’s University in June 2005 with a 2: 1 Master of Arts (Honors) in Geography.

After his graduation, The Duke of Cambridge completed a 44-week training course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst as an Officer Cadet before beginning training as a Search and Rescue pilot in 2009.

He now undertakes a number of charitable activities and projects, with a particular focus on the environment, young people, and mental health.

The Duke of Cambridge has followed his late mother Princess Diana’s footsteps by supporting a number of homeless charities including The Big Issue magazine, which offers employment opportunities to people in poverty.

Earlier this month, the Duke was praised for his “silent gesture” after he was spotted hitting the streets of London to sell copies of the magazine.
