Father's Day 2022 depicts a happy picture of a relaxed and comfortable Prince William.

His arms around Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis perched on his shoulders.

The boisterous four are captured in the act of laughing against the rocky backdrop.

The duke and duchess greeted the world's fathers and grandfathers with a Happy Father's Day on Twitter.

The duke, who turns 40 on Tuesday, is dressed casually in khakis in the photo taken last autumn.

The smaller youngsters wear navy and white tops.

Prince George, the eighth in line to the throne after his father, is dressed in a camo print T-shirt and shorts.

The backdrop for the photograph is familiar to moviegoers as the setting for the adventure epic Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Last year, the Cambridges used a similar shot for their official Christmas card.
