Prince William and Duchess Catherine have released a new video clip on Instagram, and it’s rather emotional.
In the video, the Irish Guardsman’s son can be seen running across the football pitch, before jumping into his dad’s arms. The couple have captioned the picture, ‘A sweet moment as Lcpl Laverty of the @IrishGuards, of which Prince William is Colonel, returns home from training to surprise his son.’
Fans were quick to post their well wishes to the father and son, with some expressing how the video has made them feel ‘teary’.
‘The most precious jewels that can be worn around your neck are the arms of your children ❤️ what a beautiful moment – im teary here😊’, wrote one royal follower. And clearly plenty agree, as the comment has already received over 1,400 likes.
‘I do not cry, i do not cry, i do not cry…❤️❤️’ wrote another.
While a third commented, ‘This is what’s so precious about Prince William and Duchess Catherine, it’s never about them and never do they make a huge fuss about what they have lost or cud have gained. They graciously take little sweet moments like these of general people and mightily champion them. This is what we’ve seen in the holdstill project and all their other campaigns. Original ideas cause they listen to people. If world leaders were like these two, what a beautiful place we wud have lived in. Absolute blessings The Cambridges.’
The sweet video was originally posted on the Irish Guards’ social media page, with the caption, ‘Touching moment when Irish Guardsman Lcpl Laverty returns home to surprise his son in Northern Ireland.
‘Maintaining #family and home life is recognised as a vital corner stone in a rewarding career within the British Army.
‘Lcpl Laverty is currently mid-way on an arduous and intensive machine guns course in Warminster, England.’
