The royal family celebrates the first mother’s day without a queen in new family photos
The Royal Family shared several new family photos on Sunday as they marked their first Mother’s Day in the UK following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
“Happy Mother’s Day from our family to yours,” the Prince and Princess of Wales wrote on their Instagram account.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have shared two new photos taken by the family’s trusted photographer, Matt Porteus, taken on the same day as their family Christmas card photo.
The first photo shows Kate sitting in a tree with her three children – George, Charlotte and Louis – all wearing casual outfits with trainers. The second photo then shows Kate lovingly carrying Louis in her arms.
