Sunday marked Father’s Day in the United Kingdom and to celebrate the occasion Prince William and his oldest children, Prince George, seven, and Princess Charlotte, six, made an appearance at the Run Sandringham half-marathon held on Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and the couple’s youngest son, three-year-old Prince Louis were not in attendance.

According to the Daily Mail, William, who turns 39 on Monday, addressed the crowd before handing the microphone to his two children, who led a countdown to the start of the race.

Following the event, a series of photos emerged online and fans of the Cambridges were quick to point out how grown up both George and Charlotte now look. For the occasion, George wore blue shorts and a check shirt with navy Nike runners, while Charlotte wore a pair of blue sport shorts, a baby pink Ralph Lauren pullover and bright pink Nike runners.

On the same day, William and Catherine shared a sweet Father’s Day video post on their official Instagram account, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, that included pictures of Prince William and the couple’s three children, as well as the late Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Catherine’s father, Michael Middleton.

“To all Papas everywhere, and to those who may be missing their Dads today, we are thinking of you and wishing you a special #FathersDay,” they wrote, alongside a series of pics that included Charles’ late father Prince Philip, Camilla’s late father Bruce Shand and Charles with his two boys William and Harry.
