Britain king charles has remembered the late Queen on the first Mother’s Day in the UK since her death.
“To all mothers everywhere, and to those who may miss their mothers today, we are thinking of you and wishing you a special day,” read a tweet on the Royal Family’s official account.
Two images were also posted. One shows the Queen holding a baby Charles on her lap, while another shows Camilla, queen consort, standing behind her mother, who died in 1994.
Queen Elizabeth, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, died peacefully in September aged 96. Her death launched a period of national mourning.
King Charles III, who ascended to the throne after the death of his mother, was formally proclaimed as the new monarch of the United Kingdom on September 10.
The Prince and Princess of Wales also celebrated Mother’s Day by sharing two photos of their family on Instagram.
The first shows the Princess of Wales and her three children sitting in a tree, while the second shows Kate holding her youngest son, Prince Louis.
The photos were captured by photographer Matt Porteous at the family’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
