It's been almost 25 years since Princess Diana passed away, but Prince Harry still thinks about his late mom all the time. So much so, the red-headed royal arranged for flowers to be laid at her grave on Mother's Day in the U.K., which occurred on Sunday, March 14.

This is hardly the first time Harry — who shares son Archie with wife Meghan Markle — has posted about the holiday. Last year, the pair shared a photo which showed different names for mothers and grandmothers, including "granny," "mama" and "mum."

"No matter what you call your mum, this Mother's Day in the UK, we honour the mums all over the world who do so much every single day, and now more than ever," they wrote. "Thank you."

Meanwhile, Prince William also honored his late mother — who died in a car crash in 1997 — by having his three children, Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, write notes to her. "This year Mother’s Day will be different once again. Many of us will be apart from our loved ones, but looking forward to a time in the not too distant future when we can give our mother a hug again," the note from the Duke and Duchess of Kensington's Twitter account read.

"But for those experiencing bereavement, today may be particularly challenging. Each year on Mother’s Day, George, Charlotte and Louis make cards remembering their Granny, Diana, for William. Whatever your circumstances, we are thinking of you this Mother’s Day," it continued.

George's card featured some landscape. “Dear Granny Diana, Happy Mother’s Day. I love you very much and think of you always, Sending lots of love from George xxxxxx," he wrote, while Charlotte drew a colorful heart and added some stickers to her work of art. “I am thinking of you on Mother’s Day. I love you very much. Papa is missing you," she added.

Lastly, Louis shared some fun stickers in addition to a multi-color heart on green construction paper. "From Louis," it said. 

This summer, Harry and William will reunite to unveil a statue they commissioned for their mother in honor of what would have been her 60th birthday.

“I can exclusively reveal that William is still committed, as is Harry, to get together on July 1 for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue at Kensington Gardens,” royal expert Russell Myers said on the U.K. morning show Loraine on Friday, March 12.

“This could be a monumental period for the brothers,” Myers added, referring to how Harry described their relationship as "space" while speaking with Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired on CBS on March 7.
