I considered naming this compilation "33 Times Prince William Was Extremely Hot," because, well, Prince William is ridiculously hot. To celebrate the Duke of Cambridge's 37th birthday, I combed through every photo of the prince since 1982 to prove that William is not only the caring father, fierce humanitarian, and strong leader-in-training that we know and love today, but he's also (quite possibly) the prettiest royal the world has ever seen. My thoughts go out to Prince Harry in this trying time.
