The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated Mother’s Day by sharing cards their three children had written for their late grandmother, Princess Diana.
The handwritten notes were posted on Prince William and Kate’s official Kensington Palace Instagram account.
In the first, alongside a picture of a sunset, trees and birds, seven-year-old Prince George wrote: "Dear Granny Diana, Happy happy Mother's Day. I love you very much and think of you always, sending lots of love from George xxx."
The second note by Princess Charlotte, five, was accompanied by love heart and stickers and said, "Dear Granny Diana, I am thinking of you on Mother's Day, I love you very much. Papa is missing you. Lots of love Charlotte xxx."
The third letter featured a sweet love heart drawing from two-year-old Prince Louis, accompanied by his name.
The post was captioned: “This year Mother’s Day will be different once again.
Many of us will be apart from our loved ones, but looking forward to a time in the not too distant future when we can give our mother a hug again. But for those experiencing bereavement, today may be particularly challenging.
Each year on Mother’s Day, George, Charlotte and Louis make cards remembering their Granny, Diana, for William. Whatever your circumstances, we are thinking of you this Mother’s Day.”
Fans were quick to react with the post receiving 850,000 likes and over 20,000 comments saying things like, "what beautiful artwork," and "what a special way to make grandparents part of our lives even if they aren’t with us anymore. Beautiful."
To further celebrate Mother’s Day, Kate posted an adorable photo of herself as a toddler holding her mother Carole’s hand, and a snap of a delicious-looking Victoria sponge cake made by her children.
The cake was covered in sprinkles, smarties and love hearts made from pipe cleaners and was captioned with, “Celebrating two other special mothers today. Cake made by George, Charlotte and Louis.”
