Message From the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
The couple's post was preceded by Prince William and Kate Middleton's post. The Kensington Palace Royal Instagram shares a throwback of the family with adults carrying the kids on a piggyback: Prince George on his father and Princess Charlotte on her mom.
The photos have captions addressed to all mothers who are either with their families on Mother's day or away. The caption says that the couple is thinking of them during this difficult time. "Happy Mother's Day" they greet.
The next photo is of Princess Diana with Prince William and Prince Harry posing in a garden. It is is followed by a baby photo of Kate cradled by her mom, Carole Middleton. The last photo is a personalized Mother's Day card by Prince George to his mom.
Message From the Clarence House
The Clarence House also shares a heartwarming vintage photo of Prince Charles playing with his mother, Queen Elizabeth, in a garden. His message wishes all mothers a Happy Mother's Day, particularly now when some families are not able to celebrate together.
The main royal family account represents all the royal members who do not own an account. It shows a photo of the then-princess with her mom Queen Elizabeth.
They also have a message saying that celebrating Mother's day is to thank all mothers and caregivers everywhere. Even if it is difficult now to spend time with mothers due to the disruption in normal life, the royal family wants to tell all moms that someone is thinking of them.
Why is Mother's Day in the U.K. Different From the U.S.?
The U.K. celebrates Mother's Day on a different day from other countries. This year, it happens on March 22. More commonly known as Mothering Sunday, the holiday in the U.S. is held every second Sunday of May.
However, in U.K., the holiday is linked to Easter, which differs each year because it depends on the lunar calendar. The U.K.'s Mother's Day falls on the fourth Sunday during the Lenten season.
Originally, the event in the U.K. does not have to do with mothers at all. It was a day when Christians visit their "mother" church.
