Prince Charles and the late Princess Dianawelcomed their first child, Prince William, on June 21, 1982. A day later, his mother cradled him as she and her husband left the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital — where William’s children would one day be born.
Shortly before his second birthday, William sported adorable blue dungarees as he posed for this photo with his parents at Kensington Palace in London. At the time, Diana was six months pregnant with her second son, Prince Harry.
William traveled with his parents from a very young age. In April 1985, not long before his third birthday, he and Harry were photographed on board the Royal Yacht Britannia during a trip to Venice, Italy.
At age 6, Prince William was a page boy at the wedding of Camilla Dunne and Rupert Soames in Hereford, England. He sported pink suspenders and seemed a little bemused by the antics of his fellow page boys and flower girls.
William, 8, and Harry, 6, posed with their mother during a skiing holiday in Lech, Austria, on April 9, 1991. This was reportedly William and Harry’s first time skiing.
William, 13, sported a suit and tie as he arrived for his first day at the prestigious Eton College on Sept. 6, 1995. Before Eton, he attended the Ludgrove School, a prep school for boys aged 8 to 13.
William was 15 years old when his mother died in a car accident on Aug. 31, 1997. He and Harry, who was 12 at the time, were photographed at her funeral in London a week later. In a 2021 speech, William opened upabout the “dark days of grief” that followed his mother’s death.
William, seen here at age 18, was a prefect at Eton and was apparently also a member of the Eton Society, also known as “Pop.” Members of that elite society of prefects were encouraged to wear colorful waistcoats of their own design, according to the luxury British gentleman’s retailer New & Lingwood.
The prince took a gap year between finishing Eton and beginning university. He spent part of that year as a volunteer with the adventure charity Raleigh International in Chile, where he used logs to construct walkways.
In June 2003, while still a student at University of St Andrews in Scotland, 20-year-old Prince William posed for a photo that included three generations of the royal family: his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and the late Prince Philip, and his father, Prince Charles. The photo marked the 50th anniversary of the queen’s coronation.
