The late Queen has been remembered by the King on the first Mother’s Day since her death.
A poignant message celebrating all mothers was posted online alongside treasured images which showed Charles as a beaming baby standing on the Queen’s lap, while an adult Camilla is seen smiling as she stands behind her elderly mother.
The Queen died in September aged 96.
Camilla’s mother Rosalind Shand died in 1994 at the age of 72 after a long battle with osteoporosis.
The Princess of Wales also shared photographs of happy family memories to mark the day.
The first image shows Kate sitting in a tree with her children Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and four year-old Prince Louis.
It is accompanied with the words “Happy Mother’s Day from our family to yours” along with a red love heart.
They are all casually dressed and smiling into the camera.
Another photograph shows a smiling Kate as she plays with Louis in her arms.
