“Happy Father’s Day. Wishing all the fathers out there a very happy day,” stated the tweet, alongside a rare photo of Prince Charles with his sons Prince William and Prince Harry, and a more recent photo of Prince William holding his son Prince George.
The photos had more than 12,000 likes and 1,500 shares, with many royal watchers responding positively:
Happy Fathers Day, Prince Charles! You raised 2 wonderful sons in Harry and William!

Still, more than a few wondered why Princess Charlotte wasn’t featured in any photos:
Interesting they didn't do one with W & charlotte?

Odd there's only picture with his son? Where's his daughter?

No mention as to why Charlotte wasn’t featured in the photos, but some people happily shared their own snaps of Will with his baby daughter.
Regardless of Charlotte’s omission, the photo of father and son duo was no doubt adorable. Last week, The Today Show compared cute snaps of Prince George to a retro photo Prince William at six-years-old. Whaddya think, chip off of the old block?

Prince William made news last week after visiting a crisis center and comforting a woman whose husband was feared dead in the Grenfell Tower in London. The gesture is being called compassionate and sweet since it broke royal protocol of a traditional handshake.
