The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have opened the family album to share four previously unseen photos in honour of Mother's Day.

Catherine and William posted the new pictures to the Kensington Palace Instagram account earlier today, as the UK celebrated Mothering Sunday, with the message: 'To mothers new and old and families spending today together and apart – we are thinking of you all at this difficult time. Happy Mother’s Day 🌷.'

The first photo shows Kate and William giving Prince George and Princess Charlotte a piggyback in the sunshine in Norfolk. The picture was presumably taken in the grounds of their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, and it's a beautiful shot of home life.

The second picture pays tribute to William's late mother, Princess Diana. It's undated and the exact location is not known, but a young Duke of Cambridge and his brother Prince Harry are all smiles in matching outfits as they pose for the camera on a bench in the garden with their mother.

The third shot is of Catherine's mother, Carole Middleton, holding the Duchess as a baby in what looks like the family nursery. Fans were quick to point out how much Kate looks like her mum with her dark hair and delicate features.

The final photo brings us back to the present and shows off Prince George's handiwork. It's a colourful card, featuring a vase of flowers, created by the Cambridges' eldest son for his mum.

Catherine and William aren't the only royals marking Mother's Day. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also shared a post from Canada where they now live with baby Archie.

Earlier this week, the Cambridges made an under-the-radar visit to an ambulance centre in Croydon to pay tribute to the NHS workers who are working tirelessly to save lives during the coronavirus pandemic.
