In a touching tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have revealed their children write Mothers’ Day cards to their late grandmother each year.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, The Duke of Cambridge has previously explained, have been brought up to know who Diana was, and she is spoken about a lot in the household.
On Instagram, the post sharing the children’s cards read: “Each year on Mother’s Day, George, Charlotte and Louis make cards remembering their Granny, Diana, for William.”
Twitter, meanwhile, noted the difference for this year’s celebration: “This year Mother’s Day will be different once again. Many of us will be apart from our loved ones, but looking forward to a time in the not too distant future when we can give our mother a hug again.”
Prince George, 7, wrote his message alongside a picture of a tree and plants with a hilly background: “Dear Granny Diana.
“Happy Happy Mothers Day. I love you very much and think of you always.
“Sending lots of love from George xxxxx.”
Princess Charlotte, who is 6 in May, coloured in a heart with the words: “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.”
It seems the children call Prince William Papa instead of dad.
Diana died in a car accident in a Parisian tunnel in August 1997, stunning the world and marking what many think of as a turning point for the Monarchy.x
The youngest Cambridge, Louis, three next month, signed his name on a picture of a heart with cut out animals and insects.
