The royal family is a tight-knit group that does their best to be there for each other during the good and bad times. Whether gathering for a special event or just spending the day together for a royal engagement, the royal family members have shown that they truly care for each other. Kate Middleton and Prince William married in April 2011 and have been gracing the world with their beautiful romance ever since. They have three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. 

Over the years, the family has been spotted out and about during royal engagements and typical everyday activities. Despite this, Kate and William have done their best to keep their personal life private and show how much of a normal family they are. However, with such a prime spot in the public eye, it was only time until people began to notice how the Prince and Princess of Wales acted toward their three adorable children. Throughout their many outings and interactions as a family, the royal couple has shown love, affection and support for each other and their kids.

As the British royal family was rocked with serious health issues in 2024, the Waleses were particularly affected after Kate was diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer. Keeping them together is Prince William, whose fatherhood was celebrated through a meaningful photo on Father’s Day 2024. However, many were particularly curious about the interesting choice of not having William, George, Charlotte and Louis face the camera for the celebratory photo. Apparently, this signals something deeper about William and his children. Keep reading to learn more about it.

Focus on the Wales family has been especially significant in the past few months ever since Kate’s cancer diagnosis. On June 14, 2024, for the first time since she revealed her diagnosis, Kate assured the public of her health condition and her treatment process. In her message, Kate said she had been “blown away” by the messages she had received in the past few months. 

“It really has made the world of difference to William and me and has helped us both through some of the harder times,” she said. 

According to Kate, she’s “making good progress” already. However, she pointed out, "as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days.” 

“On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well,” Kate added. “My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home.”

Kate then shared that she would attend the king’s birthday parade, which she did, and promised to attend public engagements over the summer, “knowing I am not out of the woods yet.”

“I am learning how to be patient, especially with uncertainty. Taking each day as it comes, listening to my body, and allowing myself to take this much needed time to heal. Thank you so much for your continued understanding, and to all of you who have so bravely shared your stories with me,” Kate concluded.

Days after Kate’s message was posted, the Prince and Princess of Wales’ social media account shared a beautiful photo of William, George, Charlotte, and Louis on Father’s Day. 

“We love you, Papa. Happy Father’s Day 💕 G, C & L,” the caption read alongside the photo taken by Kate. 

Many thought the photo was particularly interesting because the four were not facing the camera and, rather, looking away at the picturesque beach. Speaking to The Mirror, body language expert Judi James shared her interpretation of the interesting decision for them not to face the camera. 

“Photographed from the back view, they avoid actually communicating with the camera. It suggests this is an intimate and loving moment caught rather than a ‘show pony’ one posed to please the viewer,” James suggested. 

People in the comments also showed their appreciation for William and the family. 

“I truly love this beautiful family. They take care of each other and put family above all else. Prince William seems to be an amazing dad, and I am sure those kids think so, and that’s all that matters! Family. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads!” one greeted. 

“Somehow this photo is very poignant. A father like any father with his children ❤ united and supporting one another. Hopefully, people and some people in the media have the compassion and decency to stop ✋ with cruel unfounded speculation and comments. This is a FAMILY 👪 ❤,” another commented. 

“Beautiful picture!! It almost looks like a drawing! I absolutely love it! Happy Father’s Day Prince William. I hope you have an amazing day with your family,” a third person praised. 

“What a photo! Prince William is a wonderful father, he is raising his children like his mother would had wanted❤️,” a user pointed out.
