The children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have paid tribute to their "Granny Diana" by writing Mother's Day cards, and said: "Papa is missing you."

Pictures of cards written by Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have been posted on the official Instagram page of Kensington Palace.

A caption running alongside the images says Mother's Day will be "different once again" this year.

The post added that many people will be looking forward to a time in the not-too-distant future when they can give their mum a hug again.

"But for those experiencing bereavement, today may be particularly challenging," it reads.

"Each year on Mother's Day, George, Charlotte and Louis make cards remembering their Granny, Diana, for William.

"Whatever your circumstances, we are thinking of you this Mother's Day," the palace said.

The social media post includes what appears to be a crayon drawing of a landscape featuring a tree, the sun, flowers, hills and birds flying in a blue sky.
