The Prince and Princess of Wales Share a Charming New Family Portrait
The world just got a new glimpse of the Wales family.
To mark Mother’s Day in the United Kingdom, the Prince and Princess of Wales released a new portrait of their three children alongside their mom. Taken by photographer Matt Porteous, the picture shows Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Kate Middleton sitting together in a tree on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
The family looks notably casual in the image, with Middleton wearing jeans and white sneakers and the kids all in shorts. Such a laid-back aesthetic is becoming par for the photographic course for the Waleses: With the exception of the Princess of Wales’s glamorous 40th birthday portraits, the couple has opted to share images in informal dress and settings when celebrating family milestones.
A second photograph also shows Middleton playfully cradling her youngest child, Louis, in her arms as he holds her hands. “Happy Mother’s Day from our family to yours,” the Waleses wrote on social media.
The photo appears to be taken on the same day as their annual Christmas card, which the family shared last December.
Meanwhile, King Charles shared a photograph of himself as a baby with his late mother, Queen Elizabeth. “To all mothers everywhere, and to those who may be missing their mums today, we are thinking of you and wishing you a special,” he wrote.
