King Charles III paid tribute to his mother, as well as mothers everywhere, with a touching post on social media on British Mother’s Day. The royal family’s Twitter posted a picture of Queen Elizabeth holding Charles as a toddler alongside one with Camilla, queen consort with her mother. 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 #MothersDay.» This is the first Mother’s Day since the queen’s passing, and it’s clear that she was missed by her family.
William, Prince of Wales, and Catherine, Princess of Wales also posted in honor of Mother’s Day; their Instagram showed a picture of Kate and her three kids perched in a tree.
For anyone in the U.S. looking at the royal’s posts and wondering if they somehow missed Mother’s Day this year, not to worry. Mother’s Day is celebrated around the world, and while some countries, including the U.S., celebrate it in May, in the U.K., mothers are honored on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
