The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared four adorable photographs to mark Mother’s Day in the UK which included three previously unseen photographs and they’re adorable!

Sharing the four photographs to their social media accounts the first was a sweet photograph of Prince William and Duchess Catherine giving Prince George and Princess Charlotte piggyback rides at their country home in Norfolk, which look to be taken at the same time Matt Porteous took the family’s 2018 Christmas card.

The second photograph shared is a beautiful portrait of young Prince William and Prince Harry with their late mother Princess Diana taken by Jayne Fincher and the third is an unseen photograph of the duchess’ mother Carole Middleton holding a baby Catherine – and we’ve got to say Catherine looks just like her mother!

Just as we thought it couldn’t get any cuter, the final photograph shared is a picture of the colourful Mother’s Day card crafted by six-year-old Prince George – picture of a yellow vase sitting on a plaid tablecloth complete with red tissue-paper flowers!

“To mothers new and old and families spending today together and apart – we are thinking of you all at this difficult time. Happy Mother’s Day 🌷,” they shared alongside the images, acknowledging the difficult time many families are facing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Last week it was announced that Prince George and Princess Charlotte, four, would be moving to “remote learning” from home, a statement from their school Thomas’s Battersea announced as the UK buckles down to try and stop the spread of Covid-19.

It was also announced the Queen travelled to Windsor Castle from Buckingham Palace one week earlier than planned after it was recently reported that one member of staff at the Palace has tested positive for the virus.

The Queen also released a personal message of solidarity saying that “at times such as these, I am reminded that our nation’s history has been forged by people and communities coming together to work as one, concentrating our combined efforts with a focus on the common goal.”

She continued: “[Philip and I] are enormously thankful for the expertise and commitment of our scientists, medical practitioners and emergency and public services; but now more than any time in our recent past, we all have a vitally important part to play as individuals – today and in the coming days, weeks and months.

“Many of us will need to find new ways of staying in touch with each other and making sure that loved ones are safe. I am certain we are up to that challenge. You can be assured that my family and I stand ready to play our part,” she concluded, signing the letter, “Elizabeth R”.

The message, shared to the Royal Family’s social media accounts was also shared by the Cambridges and the Sussexes and follows their own messages addressing the current pandemic last week in which Prince William shared a video message encouraging people to come together while the Sussexes shared a similar message saying now more than ever “we need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary”.
