The Queen and Prince Charles have released a new photograph together to celebrate spring, sharing a special mother-and-son moment at Frogmore House.

Surrounded by blossom and daffodils, the pair look happy and relaxed, wrapped up warm among the wildflowers.

While the image was released on April 2nd, to celebrate the beginning of the Easter weekend, the photographs were actually taken on March 23, 2021, in the gardens of Frogmore House in Windsor.
