Kate and Prince William shared on social media a snap showing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with the Queen. The picture was taken at the Chelsea Flower Show last year, while Kate was showing her concept garden to the monarch.
Alongside the picture, Kate and Prince William wrote on Twitter: “Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 94th Birthday today”.
This message was deeply appreciated by royal fans.
One social media user commented the tweet saying: “William and Kate you have done the British public proud through this crisis…Thank you”

Another added: “Thanks William and Kate for sharing this wonderful photo of Her Majesty. Happy birthday Ma’am.”
Kate and Prince William are self-isolating at Anmer Hall with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The family-of-five won’t physically join the monarch at Windsor Castle for the birthday celebrations this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But Kate and William are believed to be joining later today other extended members of their family in wishing the Queen a happy 94th birthday via video chat.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t the only members of the Royal Family to have taken to Twitter to celebrate the monarch’s special day.
Clarence House, which represents Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, published four pictures and a message on the social media platform just a few minutes after the Cambridges.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess wrote on Twitter: “Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very Happy 94th Birthday”.
Among the pictures shared by Charles and Camilla there are two black-and-white snaps depicting the monarch and a very young Prince of Wales.
Hundreds of royal fans are expressing their admiration and affection for the Queen on social media.
The monarch is set to spend her special day at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip, who was helicopter to Berkshire from his cottage in Sandringham on March 19.
The Queen has renounced to mark her birthday with public celebrations as a respectful tribute to the trying times many Britons are living in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Usually, the monarch’s birthday is marked with gun salute, but the Queen didn’t deem this measure appropriate this year.
Similarly, the Government told local offices not to fly the Union Jack if this meant breaching self-distancing measures.
The Queen is also not to celebrate her official birthday this year, as previously confirmed by Buckingham Palace.
In a statement, the palace said the Trooping the Colour parade, usually taking place on the second weekend of June, won’t be carried out in its traditional form in 2020.
The statement read: “In line with Government advice, it has been agreed that the Queen’s Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour, will not go ahead in its traditional form.”
“A number of other options are being considered, in line with relevant guidance,” the statement added.
