Unlike in Germany, the British are celebrating Mother's Day this Sunday (March 22). The British royals can of course not be asked twice and post numerous family photos.
British Royals: They commemorate all mothers
No matter whether wife, mother, mother-in-law or grandmother – the British royal family will think of everyone on this day. Even though many families in Great Britain, including Queen Elizabeth, 93, and their loved ones have to spend this day separately from their relatives, the women are not forgotten.
Queen Elizabeth shares a photo with Queen Mum
On this day, the Queen commemorates her mother, who died in 2002 and is fondly called Queen Mum by the population, † 101. Taking a black and white picture from 1951, she writes: "Mother's Day is an opportunity to thank all mothers and carers and celebrate them wherever they may be."
The difficult time in which the world lives these days does not ignore it on this day of joy – it is omnipresent and becomes even clearer on a day of the meeting. "Today may be a different and difficult day for those who would normally plan to spend time with their mothers as they have to adapt to the changes and disturbances that are necessary in our normal routine. But to all the moms everywhere, we think of you and wish you a very special Mother’s Day. "
Prince George's greeting card becomes a highlight on Mother's Day
Prince William, 37, and Duchess Catherine, 38, share several photos on their Instagram account – that of their own family is new for their followers. And so the couple celebrates a whole range of women who have enriched or enriched their lives. Duchess Catherine, who is now a mother of three, Prince William's mother, Princess Diana, † 36, and finally Kate's mother, Carole Middleton, 65.
In addition to the beautiful pictures that always show the mothers with their children, picture number four also delights the hearts of the followers: a snapshot of the greeting card that Prince George, six, presented to his mother on this holiday.
Prince Charles takes us to his childhood days
Prince Charles, 71, also falls back on an older picture. Together with his mother, then still Princess Elizabeth, he posed for a picture in the garden of Clarence House in 1950. In a few words, he wishes everyone a happy Mother's Day, "especially in a year when families may not be able to be together."
Princess Eugenie: she celebrates her "mumma"
Princess Eugenie, 29, on the other hand, relies on a mixture of current and older pictures and not only greets her mother Sarah Ferguson, 60, but also considers "all great mothers out there" with compassionate words.
Regarding the four pictures that she shows with her "Mumma", but also with her sister, Princess Beatrice, 31, and her husband Jack Brooksbank, 34, the 29-year-old writes: "I want to celebrate all mothers who are not today to be with their children because they save lives or keep their distance to protect themselves and their children. Today and every day we should tell our loved ones how much we love and appreciate them. "
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan: No new picture of Baby Archie
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, however, did it very differently. Instead of sharing a new photo of Baby Archie, as many followers hoped for, there was only one picture with different names for mothers.
The son of Princess Diana and his wife wrote: "No matter what you call your mother, on this Mother's Day in Great Britain we honor all mums all over the world who do so much every day and now more than ever."
