Princess of Wales climbs a tree in new family photo to celebrate Mother’s Day



The Princess of Wales showed off the fun of tree climbing by sharing a family photo of Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte sitting on a tree branch.

The photo was shared on Sunday morning on the Prince and Princess of Wales’ social media accounts in honor of Mother’s Day.

The second photo shows the princess playfully holding Prince Louis in the garden. The photo was shared with the message, “Happy Mother’s Day from our family to yours.”

Tree climbing is prohibited in many parks, and one city council in London was previously accused of threatening people with hundreds of pounds in fines in an attempt to crack down on children climbing branches in recent years.

Regulations in the capital’s eight royal parks state that trees must not be climbed or disturbed without written permission.

But this photo of the princess and her smiling children, taken by royal and environmental photographer Matt Porteus, shows the benefits of the outdoors.

The Princess has a particular interest in early childhood children and emphasizes the importance of physical, emotional and cognitive development in the first five years of a child’s life. Earlier this year, she launched a campaign called Shaping Us about the impact this crucial period has on adulthood.

Last week, the princess was seen enjoying a Guinness beer with the Prince of Wales and the Irish Guards at the St Patrick’s Day parade.

The royal couple were toasted by soldiers as they visited Mons Barracks in Aldershot for an Irish holiday.

The Princess of Wales is the mascot of the Irish Guard An Irish Wolfhound named Seamus.

The late Queen was also memorialized by the King on Mother’s Day, the first after her death.

A poignant message celebrating all mothers was posted online, along with a rare image of Charles as a beaming baby standing on the Queen’s lap.
