While many of the royal family’s social media accounts provided a post to the royal father for his birthday on Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex continued to stick to their preferred way of sending good wishes on Instagram – with a note.
“Congratulations on the Duke of Cambridge!”, @SussexRoyal’s recently launched Twitter account responded to Kensington Palace’s photo in which William looks relaxed and happy while he is posing outside the car during a visit to Kenya.
Meghan and Harry, who welcomed son Archie on May 6, also chose to comment while celebrating the recent birthdays of Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte.
“Happy birthday Louis! Sending a lot of love from both of us,” wrote the couple for their first cousin’s first birthday in April, with a red balloon and emojis birthday cake. They signed the short note, “xo.”
For Charlotte they wrote: “Happy birthday Charlotte! Lots of love, H and M xo.” They also include the emoji of the cake and the balloon.

The Royal Family Twitter account, which shares updates about the Queen and other senior members, celebrated William’s birthday by sharing a collage with different images of the prince from different stages of his life with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth and his wife, Kate Middleton.
The tweet read: “Congratulations to the Duke of Cambridge! #HappyBirthdayHRH.”
William’s father, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, posted a black and white photo of Charles pushing his then 2-year-old son into a swing from the Clarence House Twitter account.
“Congratulations on HRH The Duke of Cambridge, who turns 37 today. #HappyBirthdayHRH,” the tweet read before describing the story of the moving father-son photo. “The Prince of Wales and Prince Willem play in the garden at Kensington Palace, 1984.”
Prince Andrew also chose a retro photo of his cousin to celebrate the occasion. In the 1986 shot, they explored a helicopter aboard the HMS Brazen while Andrew served as a pilot on the ship. Prince William became a helicopter pilot and served as a search and rescue pilot in the RAF and later as an air ambulance pilot.
