Prince George and his family may be celebrating his sixth birthday far away from the U.K., on a secluded Caribbean island—but his family back home still found a way to mark the occasion. Each royal social media account posted a sweet message this morning in honor of George's milestone.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have only had their own Instagram handle for a few months, but already, they've established a custom for such occasions. This morning—as they have previously done for George's younger siblings, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis—the royal couple left a comment on one of William and Kate's posts about George's birthday.
"Happy Birthday 🎂🎈!" they wrote. "Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!"
Prince Charles and Camilla, who share public messages through the Instagram handle @clarencehouse, posted a slideshow with all three of George's official birthday portraits. "A very Happy Birthday to Prince George, who turns six today," they added in a comment.
The main royal family account, @theroyalfamily—which represents Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, and many more members of the House of Windsor—took a similar approach. Their post consisted of the three photos in a slideshow, captioned with a near-identical message to the one Prince Charles and Camilla wrote.
Unlike his siblings Prince Edward and Princess Anne, Prince Andrew has his own Instagram account, separate from the overarching @theroyalfamily feed. He also wished Prince George a happy birthday, sharing a photo of George, Princess Charlotte, Mia Tindall, and Savannah Phillips, taken at Princess Eugenie's wedding. (All four royal children were in Eugenie's wedding party.)
"Wishing Prince George a very Happy 6th Birthday!" Andrew wrote. "In October 2018, His Royal Highness was a pageboy at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle."
