Prince William and his children share touching new snap for Fathers Day

A snap of Prince William, 39, with his three children on holiday has been released to celebrate Father's Day.

The picture shows the Duke of Cambridge laughing with his arms round eight-year-old Prince George and Princess Charlotte, seven, while Prince Louis, four, sits on his shoulders.

The pictures were taken during a family trip to the ancient city Petra, one of the seven new world wonders of the world, which were announced in 2007 after 100million people voted.

The Unesco world heritage site in Jordan's south-western desert dates to around 300BC and was the capital of the Nabatean Kingdom.

It contains tombs and temples carved into pink sandstone cliffs and has featured in films such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and The Mummy Returns.

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, spent three years of her early childhood there while her father, Michael Middleton, was a British Airways flight dispatcher whose work took him to the Middle Eastern country's capital, Amman.

William made an official Royal visit in 2018 and said at the time: "My wife, Catherine, is very sorry she cannot be here with me so soon after the birth of our son Louis, but her family remembers very fondly the almost three years she spent here as a child when her father worked for British Airways in Amman.

"Catherine's experience is not unique – the interchange between our two countries is real and deep: work, study, tourism and family links. Our historic ties and friendship are played out in the lives of thousands of people who consider both countries home."

He clapped his hands over his ears on the Buckingham Palace balcony on Thursday during the RAF flypast, as his “Gan Gan” the Queen sweetly told him what was happening.
