On Sunday June 21, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Instagram account, Kensington Palace, shared several new photos of the family at their Anmer Hall residence in Norfolk and from Kate's childhood.
In one snap, the couple’s children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince George – are seen tackling their famous father to the ground on the lawn and posing for a snap together on a swing.
In another, Prince William cuddles up to his father, Prince Charles, which the caption explains was a tender moment that took place in Sandringham in December last year.
Another photo sees a young Kate sitting on her father Michael’s lap as a child. Dressed in a checked shirt and jeans, the royal wears plaits in her hair and smiles at the camera.
Royals fans couldn’t help but notice the likeness between Kate and her youngest son, Louis, in the snap.
One fan commented: ‘Is that Louis or his Mama?’
‘Prince louis seems like baby kate [sic],’ added another.
One wrote: ‘Prince George and Prince Louis totally look like the Duchess when she was younger!’
Their supporters also took to the comments sections of the photos to thank the passionate photographer for sharing such personal and sweet shots of her family with the public.
‘Kate has outdone herself! These pictures are the sweetest!’ one user commented.
Another added: ‘Thank you so much so much to Catherine for taking precious moments of her family.’
In photos taken by his mother in April, the young prince is seen hand-painting rainbows, which came amid children around the country painting rainbow pictures to show their support for the NHS during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Opening up about her own childhood earlier this year during an 'appearance' on Giovanna Fletcher's podcast, Happy Mum, Happy Baby, Kate noted: ‘If I take the experience from my own childhood, coupled with what I know now and what I’ve learnt from the experts in the Early Years sector, I think there's a few things that really stand out for me.
‘One is quality of relationships. So, those moments that you spend with people that are around you.
‘I remember that from my own childhood. I had an amazing Granny who devoted a lot of time to us, playing with us, doing arts and crafts and going to the greenhouse to do gardening, and cooking with us, and I try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that I give my children now.’
