Mother’s Sunday for the Cambridges often involves messy cake baking, homemade cards and also a tribute to Diana.

This is what the day looks like behind royal closed doors…

Homemade Cards

Like many children, George, Charlotte and Louis like to take a homemade approach when it comes to giving Kate a card.

In 2020, royal fans got a sneak peek at the card George made for his mum with the adorable DIY creation that featured a flower jar with 3D petals pinned up and a vase.

Baking family cakes

Last year George and his siblings Charlotte and Louis Kate baked an amazing cake for Mother’s Day.

The treat was adorned with hearts, smarties and covered dollops of whipped cream.

A picture of the Victoria sponge was posted to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Instagram page.

It captioned it: “Today we celebrate two other special mothers. Manufactured by George, Charlotte and Louis.”

In memory of Diana

While the day is a public holiday that pays tribute to Kate and also the Queen, it can be a painful day for Prince William and Prince Harry.

Duncan Larcombe, royal author and former royal editor of The Sun, told Fabulous: “It was only after the death of Princess Diana in 1997 that Mother’s Day took on special meaning for the royals.

“Since then, the fourth Sunday of Christian Lent – when Mother’s Day is observed in Britain – has been shrouded in sadness for William and Harry.

“Both boys have spoken about how difficult they are finding the day they would dread for years.

“Prince Charles and the rest of the family took pains to throw a cotton ring around Diana’s children on Mother Sundays after her death.

“But that changed when first William and then Harry had children of their own.

“Now the focus is on using the day as a chance to tell your kids about the amazing grandmother they never met.”

Princess Charlotte and Prince George and Louis write Touching Mother’s Day cards to “Grandma Diana”.

In a heartbreaking note written on green paper, Prince George wrote: “Dear Grandma Diana. Happy Mothers’s Day. I love you very much and I always think of you.

“Sending much love from George.”

Share cute photos

Royal fans are often treated to adorable royal pictures on social media for the big day.

In 2020Kate and William paid tribute to “mums new and old” as they shared a snap of them piggybacking their two eldest children as they speed around the garden outside their Norfolk home.

Additionally, the couple used the thoughtful post to pay tribute to their own mother Princess Diana and Carole Middleton.

And in 2021Kate shared a snap of her as a little girl with her mother.

Erase their schedules

The royals usually have a packed schedule of royal engagements and services.

However, Duncan added of the big day: “The Queen only has one rule when it comes to Mother’s Day – it’s all about family.

“Since the birth of her first child, Prince Charles, Her Majesty has faced the challenge of balancing the demands of her audience with the needs of her children.

“Every year on Mother’s Day, the monarch traditionally leaves her schedule empty to spend quality time with those closest to her.

“For most of her reign, the Queen’s children each sent their mother a bouquet of flowers and handwritten notes.

“This year Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward are expected to make an extra effort to hand deliver their flowers to make up for last year’s lockdown.”

Harry and William unite

Duncan said little is known about how Harry marks the day now that he’s a father and living in the US, where Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday in May.

He commented: “Sources say the Duke of Sussex has already followed William’s style of sharing his mother’s memories with his children.

“By focusing on their own children this year, William and Harry at least have something to distract them from the elephant in the room.

“Mother’s Day has always been an occasion for brothers to offer one another comfort – sadly, a ‘family’ tradition that seems to have all but disappeared.”
