What a way to mark Mother’s Day in the United Kingdom!
Sunday saw Britain’s Royal Family release rare footage, from 1949, of tiny toddler Prince Charles playing with his mum, the then Princess Elisabeth.
The intimate archives show Britain’s future king and current queen were always naturals in front of the camera.
And keeping the next generation in the picture, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge followed suit by releasing photographs of their young family on a first skiing holiday together, as a family of four.
