HuffPost Style would like to wish the man of our dreams, the great Prince William, a very happy birthday! Today he turns 31 years old. We think that's the perfect age to become a father, and we know he is going to do a stellar job.

On this special day, we are taking some time to reflect on the reasons Prince William is every girl's secret (or not-so-secret) fantasy man. Through 31 pictures and some quite endearing GIFs, we have figured out just what makes this prince so undeniably dreamy.

See why Prince William is still our Prince Charming:
