Best ways to celebrate your MUM

Mother’s Day 2019 was celebrated in UK last Sunday March 31. What’s the best way to celebrate your mum and make her feel special?

Mothering Sunday stems from the Christian tradition of visiting ones mother before Easter. In Britain we celebrate Mother’s Day on the fourth weekend of Lent every year. But Mother’s Day has evolved from a religious tradition into a chance to say thanks to mums everywhere. Across the country it's a day when mums receive flowers, chocolates, cards and other gifts from family members.

And it’s not just mothers who are celebrated on Mother’s Day, grandmothers and other maternal figures like step mums are recognised too.

Does the Queen celebrate Mother's Day - how?

MOTHERS across the country can enjoy a day of pampering on Mother’s Day this weekend. But does the Queen get to put her feet up on Mother’s day too? This is how the Queen celebrates Mother’s Day.

Queen Elizabeth II is quite the matriarch. Not only is she the monarch but she heads up a huge royal family of her own. Her Majesty has four children, seven grandchildren and eight great-grand children, with another on the way. So surely it’s only fair the Queen gets to enjoy Mother’s Day just like any other mum?


As the head of the Royal Family the Queen will be at the receiving end of gifts.

The royal family sticks with the tradition of giving flowers on Mothering Sunday, so Queen Elizabeth II can expect a bouquet or two.

Family photos

Unseen royal family photos have often been released to the public on Mother’s Day.

On Mother’s Day last year an exclusive picture of the Queen with her family - including all of her children and Prince Philip was released to the public for the first time.

In 2014 Prince William released some gorgeous photos of he and Kate with a young Prince George.

While there’s no guarantee the same will happen this year, our fingers’ are crossed.

Spends time with her family

Spending time with family on Mother’s Day is a tradition the royals stick to too. So it’s likely that Queen Elizabeth will spend the day surrounded by family members.

We’ll have to wait for Sunday to see which of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will join her for the special day.

Goes to church

As the head of the Church of England it’s not surprising that the Queen attends church on Mother’s Day.

Mothering Sunday is after all a Christian tradition, which has its roots in the church.

Over the years the Queen has been spotted attending Mother’s Day church services at various locations including in Windsor and Sussex.
