Royal fans spot sweet family photo in Prince William's office

Prince William took to Instagram on Friday (17 September) to share a clip celebrating a new book about the Earthshot Prize. But, eagle eyed royal fans couldn't help but study what was going on in the background of the video, and spotted a rather adorable family photo.

ICYMI, in the 15 second video, Prince William sits in front of a typewriter as he starts work on his personal introduction to Earthshot: How to Save our Planet. He captioned the post: “In my introduction to Earthshot: How to Save our Planet, the authoritative book of The @EarthshotPrize, I wanted to share the early conversations in 2018 that led to the Prize’s creation and the simple equation that captures my theory behind Earthshot: Urgency + Optimism = Action.”

While the clip is certainly highlighting a very good cause, fans were particularly excited to see a photo of Prince Philip and Prince George that could be seen on Prince William's desk.

In the photo, a two-year-old Prince George sits next to his great-grandfather, Prince Philip, on a horse carriage. The photo was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge outside their Norfolk home, and was shared with the public earlier this year as a tribute to Prince Philip – who sadly passed away aged 99 in April.

Sharing the photo to Instagram, Prince William wrote: “My grandfather’s century of life was defined by service – to his country and Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family. I feel lucky to have not just had his example to guide me, but his enduring presence well into my own adult life – both through good times and the hardest days.”

He continued, “I will never take for granted the special memories my children will always have of their great-grandpa coming to collect them in his carriage and seeing for themselves his infectious sense of adventure as well as his mischievous sense of humour! My grandfather was an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation. Catherine and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and will support The Queen in the years ahead. I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job.”

It's no secret that Kate Middleton has a passion for photography, and luckily, it's also something that she has a real talent for too – as evidenced by all the gorgeous portraits of the Royal Family that she's treated us to over the years. It makes sense then that Prince William would choose this photo to have on his desk.
