Oct 12, 2021 by apost team

The royals are known for their public engagements, charitable works and incredible senses of style. One thing that may sometimes be overlooked is their lives as normal mothers and fathers. The royal family is quite large. Queen Elizabeth and the late Prince Phillip have four children together, eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Of course, there are also the royal families in other countries. From  Queen Margrethe II of Denmark to Princess Sofia of Sweden, the world is full of royal parents.

Whether it is a hug or another gesture of love, it is so nice to see the happy moments between royal mothers and their children. It is something that makes the royals seem accessible to us and shows their soft and gentle side. It is a reminder that even royal family members are just people and that they want to spend time with their families like anyone else.

With so much time spent in the public eye, there have been plenty of adorable captured moments between royal mothers and their precious children. Though they work to keep their lives private, there are plenty of special occasions when we get the chance to see the families interact. This is especially true for royals when their children have just been born or during public-facing events in other countries. For example, no one will forget the iconic photo of Meghan Markle holding Archie while in South Africa. Here is a look at 12 special and adorable moments in which doting royal mothers show love to their kids.
