The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared pictures of handwritten Mother’s Day cards addressed to “Granny Diana” from their three children.
Pictures of the cards made by Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were posted on social media by Kensington Palace on their official Instagram and Twitter accounts.
“Each year on Mother’s Day, George, Charlotte and Louis make cards remembering their Granny, Diana, for William,” the caption read.
Prince George, 7, wrote “Happy happy Mother’s Day. I love you very much and think of you always,” while 5-year-old Princess Charlotte wrote “Dear Granny Diana, I am thinking of you on Mother’s Day. I love you very much. Papa is missing you. Lots of love, Charlotte.”
Prince Louis, who is almost 3, drew a heart.
Princess Diana died in the early hours of August 31, 1997, after being involved in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris.

That’s so beautiful to see. She would be super proud of yourselves and those wonderful grandchildren you have given her. Thinking of William today, it doesn’t get easier, you just learn to live without them.

Well this broke me. Thinking of every person who is unable to call their mother right now whilst they’re watching over you in heaven. ❤️

Despite not being present, Diana, Princess of Wales has always had a place in their heart, memories and they know enough of the love Prince William has for her. So heart-warming. Love this family so much. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
