Prince Ricardo De La Cerda
KING Charles has paid tribute to his late mum the Queen in a touching Mother’s Day post.
The Monarch, 74, joined the Queen Consort in sharing a heartfelt tribute to those “missing their mums” today.
In a post on the Royal Family’s official Instagram page, Charles shared a picture of the Queen holding him as a toddler.
Her Majesty Elizabeth II died peacefully aged 96 in September last year.
And Camilla shared a throwback picture of her and her mum Rosalind Shand, who passed away in July 1994.
The post read: “To all mothers everywhere, and to those who may be missing their mums today, we are thinking of you and wishing you a special Mother’s Day”.
King Charles’ grandchildren Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, have some very sweet traditions when it comes to celebrating Kate on Mother’s Day each year.
Mothering Sunday for Prince William, Princess Kate and their kids often involves messy cake-baking sessions, homemade cards and also paying tribute to Diana.
While the day is one of celebration, paying tribute to the likes of Kate and also the Queen, it can be a painful day for Prince William and Prince Harry.
Duncan Larcombe, Royal Author and former Royal Editor of The Sun, told Fabulous: “It wasn’t until the aftermath of the Death of Princess Diana in 1997, that Mother’s Day took on an extra significance for the Royals.
“Since then, the fourth Sunday in the Christian festival of Lent – when Mother’s Day is marked in the UK – is shrouded in sadness for William and Harry.
“Both the boys have spoken about how difficult they find the day, which for years they would always dread.
“Prince Charles and the rest of the family were at pains to throw a ring of cotton wool around Diana’s children on the Mothering Sundays that followed her death.
“But this changed when first William and then Harry had children of their own.
“Now the focus is on using the day as a chance to tell their children about the amazing grandmother they never met.”
