British Royal Family extended warm birthday wishes to The Duke of Kent, who celebrates his 88th birthday.
The official Instagram account of the Royal Family shared a photo of The Duke of Kent along with a caption that read, “Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duke of Kent today.”
The post quickly garnered attention from royal enthusiasts and well-wishers, receiving numerous likes and comments.
The Duke of Kent, Prince Edward, holds the distinction of being the oldest living blood relative of the British Royal Family.
His enduring commitment to his royal duties and unwavering support for Queen Elizabeth II have earned him respect and admiration over the years.
Besides his official responsibilities, the Duke forged a distinguished military path, serving in regions fraught with conflict such as Northern Ireland and Cyprus during his extensive 21-year tenure in the armed forces.
His affinity for automobiles and engines resulted in a string of audacious escapades, marked by vehicular mishaps and incidents.
More recently, his prominent presence alongside Queen Elizabeth, notably during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, has underscored the depth of his relationship with the reigning monarch.
