Yesterday Kate Middleton shared the sweet Mother's Day card Prince George made for her. In a post on Instagram, Katherine also shared some unseen family photos alongside the caption, 'To mothers new and old and families spending today together and apart – we are thinking of you all at this difficult time'.

These included a picture of the Duke and Duchess giving Princess Charlotte and Prince George piggyback rides in Norfolk, as well as one of Carol Middleton holding a newborn Katherine.

Another photo showed Princess Diana, sitting with Princes William and Harry in a garden, which looks to have been taken in the late 1980s.

She is wearing a simple white shirt and printed pleated skirt, accessorised with gold earrings, her engagement ring and a watch.

The thing gold timepiece with round face may look familiar to you, because it appears to be the same one from that famous photograph where she wore two watches.

Taken in July 1981 at a polo game, it showed her wearing her gold watch next to Prince Charles', as a symbol of her love for him.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
