The Queen and Prince Charles enjoyed a beautiful mother-son moment as they spent some quality time together recently at Frogmore House.

In two new photos taken by Chris Jackson and shared by Buckingham Palace, Her Majesty and the future King looked blissfully happy as they took in the sunshine for a walk in the garden of the Windsor estate.

The photos come after the Queen revealed her sadness over this year's cancelled Maundy Thursday service amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Traditionally, the monarch would meet the recipients' in-person at a church service, where she would distribute the specially-minted coins, known as the Maundy Gift.

However, like last year, the Maundy Gift and a letter from the Queen have been delivered to recipients by post, instead.

The monarch wrote: "I am sure you will be sad, as I am, that present circumstances make it impossible for that service to take place. I hope however that this Maundy Gift will remind you for years to come that your efforts have been truly appreciated."

The 190 recipients are pensioners, one man and one woman for each of the Queen's 95 years, who have been recognised by their dioceses for their outstanding contributions to their local church and community life.

Each recipient receives two purses, one red and one white, which have been blessed by the Sub-Dean at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.

This year's coins have been newly minted to commemorate Her Majesty's 95th birthday in April and the 50th anniversary of Decimal Day.
