Prince William celebrated his 35th birthday with the people he loves most.

On Wednesday, June 21, the Duke of Cambridge turned 35, and to celebrate this new milestone in his life, Prince William chose to spend time with wife Kate Middleton and children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, a source told Hello! Online.

Prince William is expected to have a low-key celebration at home, which is what they have done during his birthday in recent years. Traditionally, royal family members are given a break on their natal days. They are not required to attend any appointments or engagements and instead are given the freedom to celebrate their birthdays privately.

On Tuesday, the day before his birthday, Prince William joined Queen Elizabeth and the other members of the royal family in Ascot, where they enjoyed a sunny day at the races. A week ago, the royals celebrated the queen’s official birthday at the Trooping the Colour. This is a special event in the royal calendar that features a military parade and flypast at Buckingham Palace.

Meanwhile, on Friday, Prince William visited the victims of the deadly fire in Grenfell Tower staying in a crisis center. At one point, Prince Harry’s brother broke a royal protocol and hugged a distressed woman who was desperate to find her husband. The man had been trapped in an elevator in the building during the fire. According to People, royal protocol states that touching a member of the royal family is historically reserved for handshakes.

Prince William was with Queen Elizabeth during the visit, and the two met the responders from the emergency services, the local residents and community representatives. Following the fire, Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry all made donations for the families who were left homeless after the tragedy.

“The tragedy at Grenfell Tower has left a number of local people in need of urgent assistance,” a spokesman for the three royals at Kensington Palace said. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are pleased the Evening Standard’s Dispossessed Fund has immediately swung into action. As residents of the local area, they are keen to offer their immediate support.”

According to the Daily Mail, Prince William is now preparing to be a full-time working royal. Middleton’s husband is due to finish his job as an air ambulance helicopter pilot this summer. Following this, the royal pair is bound to leave the countryside and move into the Kensington Palace for good.
