"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new picture of The Duke with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis ahead of The Duke's birthday tomorrow," the tweet read.
The photos were taken by the Kate, Duchess of Cambridge who often acts as the families photographer.
William's birthday is on June 21, The prince's birthday also coincides with Father's Day in the UK, so it's set to be an extra special day.
Reports have indicated that his birthday this year will have a "tinge of sadness" to it, as he's unable to see his extended family amid coronavirus concerns.
William has been isolating at Amner Hall, Norfolk, with Kate, 38, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, since March.
Prince Charles, on the other hand, has just returned to Clarence House after spending the last few months with Camilla at Balmoral in Scotland.
William also won't be able to see his brother Prince Harry, who is currently weathering the coronavirus storm in Los Angeles, after moving there from Vancouver Island in Canada.
Celebrating a birthday in lockdown isn't new for the royal family - two of William's children, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, have already had their special day while the country battles coronavirus.
Both of the younger royals were forced to celebrate their birthdays (May 2 and April 23 respectively) under the nationwide lockdown.
On both occasions, their mother Kate released photographs that she had shot personally.
The next royal birthday will be on July 22, when the eldest child of Kate and William, Prince George, turns seven.
