It might seem like a perfectly adorable Instagram photo to some, but Kensington Palace’s Father’s Day post has been slammed by royal fans.

The snap shows Prince William pulling funny faces at his precious one-year-old son, Prince Louis, who can be seen sitting on a swing in his mother, Kate Middleton’s Chelsea Flower Show garden.

Another photo posted shows Prince William walking alongside his father, Prince Charles, as a tribute to his dad on the momentous day.

Royal fans fuming

However, fans of the Cambridge family have taken serious issue with the first snap, with one person even calling the palace out for ‘making no effort’ with the post.

Most people were furious that Prince William’s two older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were absent from the photo.

“Why only Louis? Why not George and Charlotte? They are the eldest children! They should have posted the Christmas Photo where there is all the Cambridge kids,” one person commented.

“Seriously William does not have a pic of him and all three of his children?” another royal fan said.

Others seemed confused that Kate’s father, Michael Middleton, wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the post and that nothing was uploaded to the account as a tribute to the Duchess of Cambridge for Mother’s Day.

Meanwhile, fans of the Sussexes were delighted over on their Instagram page, when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle posted a new image of Archie for Father’s Day.

The stunning image shows the one-month-old trying to grasp Harry’s fingers with his tiny hands while being cradled by his dad.

Archie, who appears to be wearing a printed babygro, looks straight at the camera - perhaps at his mum behind the lens.

The pic is captioned: “Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex.”

Royal fans were delighted by their closest look at Archie yet, and the post has already received over 1.8 million ‘likes’.
