Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have paid tribute to their “Granny Diana” on Mother’s Day, and said: “Papa is missing you.”
Pictures of cards made by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children have been posted on social media by Kensington Palace.
The palace said Mother’s Day will be “different once again” this year, adding that many people will be looking forward to a time in the not-too-distant future when they can give their 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,” the palace said.
The social media post includes what appears to be a crayon drawing of a landscape featuring a tree, the sun, and birds flying in a blue sky.
George’s card says: “Dear Granny Diana, Happy Happy mothers day. I love you very much and think of you always, Sending lots of love from George xxxxx.”
Charlotte’s card says: “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 xxxxxxxxx.”
Louis’s card features a painted drawing of a big heart and is adorned with animal stickers.
The palace later posted a photo of a cake made by George, Charlotte and Louis to celebrate the day, as well as a photo of the Duchess of Cambridge with her own mother.
“Celebrating two other special mothers today,” the palace wrote on social media.
The cake made by the young royals appears to be filled with jam and icing, with the top decorated with swirls of icing, sweets, sprinkles, and heart-shaped decorations.
The second photo shows the Duchess of Cambridge as a young child with her mother Carole.
