The Princess of Wales became a mother for the first time in July 2013, when she gave birth to Prince George.

Since then Kate has seen her eldest child grow from a cheeky baby to a football-loving young boy.

The Prince and Princess are hands on parents to George, ten, and his younger siblings, Princess Charlotte, eight, and five-year-old Prince Louis.

William and Kate are regulars on the school run and are said to plan their public duties around their children's routines.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the Princess will not attend the Earthshot Prize Awards in Singapore on 7 November with the Prince.

HELLO! understands that George, who is in Year 6 at Lambrook school, is sitting exams on the same week and Kate wants to be at home to support him.

 We're taking a look back at all of Kate and George's sweet mother-son moments in the gallery below…
