"We love you, Papa. Happy Father’s Day," the Princess of Wales (42) wrote to William (41) on Instagram Sunday, adding the initials "G, C & L" – which stand for their children George (10), Charlotte (9), and Louis (6).

In the snapshot, the father and his three royal children stand arm in arm on the beach with their backs to the camera, looking out to the sea.
