The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared two sweet family photographs to mark Mother’s Day.

The Princess of Wales with four-year-old Prince Louis

Prince Louis, the youngest of the couple’s three children, can be seen with his hand placed on his mother’s knee as she affectionately puts her hand on top.

Prince George rests his leg over his mum’s knee, while Princess Charlotte, dressed in a cute denim play suit adored with pom pom sleeves, grabs onto the branch above her.

Alongside the sweet snap, which was taken on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk last year, the caption read: “Happy Mother’s Day from our family to yours.”

In a second heartwarming family photograph, Kate can be seen looking down and smiling at her four-year-old Prince Louis, who she holds in her arms.

The royal, who wears her brunette locks wavy and loose, cuts a casual display in a pair of blue denim jeans, a white lace long-sleeved top and trainers.

In a nod to her late mother-in-law, Kate can also be seen wearing Princess Diana’s stunning sapphire engagement ring, which Prince William proposed to her with when he popped the question in Kenya in 2010.

The outdoor snaps are fitting for keen gardener Kate, who is famed for her love of outdoor pursuits – including sailing, hiking and skiing.

Both snaps were taken by environmental portrait photographer Matt Porteous, who previously took the image they used for their 2021 Christmas card, and Prince George’s third birthday portraits.

Royal fans rushed to the comments section to share their delight after the unseen photographs were shared.

“Awww, super cute!” enthused one.

A second praised: “Lovely photos!”

A third penned: “Enjoy! This lovely picture has all the feels, also! Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums celebrating!”

Meanwhile, a fourth added: “Just beautiful!”

Prince William and kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have some very sweet traditions when it comes to celebrating Kate each year.

Mothering Sunday for the Cambridges often involves messy cake-baking sessions, homemade cards and also paying tribute to Diana.
