• The Waleses marked Mother’s Day in the UK by sharing photos of Kate Middleton with her kids.
  • One photo shows Middleton sitting in a tree with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
  • The royals’ Instagram shared a photo of a young King Charles and the late Queen Elizabeth.

The royals celebrated Mother’s Day in the UK by sharing several family photos on their official Instagram accounts.

One photo posted on the Waleses’ Instagram account shows Kate Middleton and her three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — smiling and sitting together in a tree.

“Happy Mother’s Day from our family to yours,” the post’s caption read.

Another photo in the Instagram post shows Middleton, dressed in a white blouse, carrying Prince Louis and beaming at him.

The photos were taken by the royal photographer Matt Porteous in Norfolk.

While Prince William was absent from the Instagram photos, another photo from the shoot with Porteous shows the entire family holding hands. The photos were featured in the Waleses’ 2022 Christmas card.

It’s become a tradition for the royals to share photos online on Mother’s Day to celebrate the women in the royal family.

In March 2020, the Waleses shared on Instagram an old photo of Prince William and Prince Harry with their mother, the late Princess Diana, to commemorate Mother’s Day. The photo showed Diana, dressed in a white top and satin skirt, with the young princes, who wore blue shirts with ties.

On Sunday, King Charles also shared a rare photo of himself with his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II. This was King Charles’ first public tribute to Queen Elizabeth since she died in September at the age of 96.

The photo, posted on the royal family’s Instagram account, shows King Charles as a baby standing on Queen Elizabeth’s lap.

“To all mothers everywhere, and to those who may be missing their mums today, we are thinking of you and wishing you a special #MothersDay,” the post’s caption read.

Another photo in the same post shows Camilla, Queen Consort, with her late mother, Rosalind Shand, who died in 1994 from a bone disease.

King Charles is set to be crowned on May 6, alongside Camilla. The coronation, which is largely ceremonial, is meant to formalize King Charles’ role as the head of the Church of England.
