Prince William turns 31, weeks before becoming a father. In just a few short weeks, Prince William will have a special birthday to celebrate as he and wife Kate welcome their new arrival.
But for today, the Duke of Cambridge marks his birthday as he turns 31.
Wills was born 31 years ago today in London’s St Mary’s Hospital and christened William Arthur Philip Louis by his proud parents Charles and Diana.
As a future king he grew up in the limelight, joining his parents on public visits and with his questionable school uniform and page boy outfits shared with the world.
After the birth, Prince William will take two weeks paternity leave from his RAF job as he supports the Duchess, as they both settle into parenthood.
The official details come just days after Kate took part in her final engagement. The glowing mum-to-be joined the Queen and Royal Family for the annual Trooping the Colour in London, which celebrates the Queen’s official birthday.
The Duchess of Cambridge is now officially on maternity leave, as she prepares to welcome her and William’s first child in mid-July.
It was also confirmed William hopes to be present at the baby’s birth and if on duty at the time, the father-to-be will rush to London, possibly by helicopter.
