LONDON — Happy birthday, Prince Charles!
But his absence didn't stop the tributes from pouring in from his family back in London.
Kensington Palace was the first to offer well-wishes, tweeting three photos of Charles with his sons, Princes William and Harry; Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge; and the Cambridges' youngest son, Prince Louis.
"Wishing a very happy birthday to The Prince of Wales," read the post from William and Kate's official Twitter account.
"Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales – Sir, Pa, Grandpa!" the caption read.
Buckingham Palace also joined in, tweeting a recent picture of Charles, clad in a kilt, standing in front of the Castle of Mey in Scotland, as well as a baby photo of Charles with his parents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
