Buckingham Palace has shared an intimate photograph of the Royal Family from 1965 to celebrate Mothering Sunday.
The picture, which was posted on the Royal Family’s official Twitter account, shows the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and their four children in the gardens of Frogmore House.
Frogmore is tucked away in Windsor Castle’s Home Park and has been previously been described as the Royal Family’s secret bolthole.
The intimate snapshot shows the Queen and Duke with the Princess Royal and the Prince of Wales all staring at something that appears to have caught their eye on the ground.
The infant Earl of Wessex is leaning out of his pram to see and the young Duke of York is clutching the handle of the pram.
The picture was taken of the Royal Family as they celebrated the Queen’s 39th birthday.
It was posted with a caption reading: “Wishing a very happy Mothering Sunday to all of our followers. #MothersDay.”
The photograph gives a glimpse of the Royal Family enjoying a private moment in their secluded sanctuary at Frogmore.
The 35-acre gardens are a mile from Windsor Castle and represent a respite from the pomp and circumstance of the castle.
The grounds are off-limits to the public expect for three days of the year when they open for charity.
The gardens are where the Queen liked to walk her corgis and was used by Prince Andrew and Prince Edward as a playground for their children.
More recently Frogmore was the location for Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle’s engagement photo shoot.
In the past, Frogmore was the destination where George VI and the Queen Mother decided to spend their honeymoon in 1923.
The grounds also house an Italian Romanesque mausoleum were Queen Victoria was buried alongside her beloved Prince Albert.
