It’s a bittersweet day for Prince William, and not just because he’s finally hit the big 3-0.

The royal dreamboat celebrates his birthday on June 21, which means he has inherited $15 million from his late mother Princess Diana‘s estate. Though he was supposed to be given the money on his 25th birthday, a modification in his mother’s will after her tragic death in August 1997 changed the circumstances.

It’s not to say William, who married Kate Middleton, 30, in April 2012, doesn’t work for a living: he earns roughly $60,000 a year (American) for his time in the Royal Air Force. However, towards the end of this year, he will need to decide if he wants to continue with the RAF, or begin pursuing royal duties full time.

What do you think he will choose to do?

That remains to be seen, but in the mean time, celebrate William’s birthday by clicking through the gallery and reliving his many moments growing up in front of the spotlight.

It’s been quite the year for William: just last year he married his college sweetheart in a lavish ceremony held at Westminster Abbey, toured the globe for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, — which celebrates her 60th year on the throne — and even managed to find the time to adopt a puppy with his blushing bride.

The two have been seen all over the UK doting on their cocker spaniel puppy, and most recently, taking him along to a polo match.

Now that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are finally 30, do you think they’ll be welcoming a child any time soon? Share your thoughts — and birthday wishes — in the comments section.
