The Duchess of Cambridge surprised fans and followers on Instagram with previously unknown photos from the family album – and a striking resemblance to her own mother
On March 22, 2020, Duchess Kate posted four photos from the family album on her official Instagram account @kensingtonroyal. Among them were two previously unpublished pictures: one shows her with daughter Charlotte, the other shows her as a baby with her mother Carole Middleton.
Royals: Unknown photo of Kate and Charlotte released
In contrast to Germany, where Mother’s Day will only be celebrated on May 10, 2020, the British celebrated their mothers on March 22. On this occasion, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posted a number of private pictures. The first, unpublished photo of the collection shows the parents playing with their two eldest children. While Prince William and Prince George are more blurry in the background, you can see Princess Charlotte on her mother’s back. She carries them piggyback across the meadow in front of Note Hall in the English county of Norfolk, the family’s country residence.
Photo proves: Kate Middleton looks confusingly similar to her mother
The other, also previously unknown, picture shows Kate as a newborn in her mother’s arms. Carole Middleton tenderly holds her daughter in her arms and looks at a mobile hanging from the ceiling. What stands out: Today’s Duchess looks confusingly similar to her then 31-year-old mother Carole on the retro picture. The dark hair, the area around the eyes and the mouth: the family is unmistakable – and the picture is a nice greeting to the grandmother of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Mother’s Day: Prince George gave this gift to his mother Kate
The third photo of the Mother’s Day posting is a photo of William’s late mother Diana with him and his brother Prince Harry when they were children. At the end of the small gallery of family photos you can see the homemade card that six-year-old Prince George gave his mom for Mother’s Day. The commentary to the pictures read: “To new and old mothers and families who spend the day together and separately – we are thinking of you in this difficult time.”
