    The Royal Family has been accused of "airbrushing Princess Diana from history" with a Mother's Day Instagram post labelled a “huge mistake”.

    On the official Instagram page for the royals, images of both the mother of King Charles III – the late Queen Elizabeth II – and Queen Consort Camilla were posted.

    The latter's mum, Rosalind Shand, died in 1994 from osteoporosis at the age of 72, while the Queen died last year at the age of 96.

    The post was captioned: “To all mothers everywhere, and to those who may be missing their mums today, we are thinking of you and wishing you a special #MothersDay.”

    And while the images of the two women, which also featured a young King and Queen Consort, were well received, it didn't take long for fans to question why a certain other royal mother was left out.

    The mother of the King's sons Prince Harry and Prince William, Princess Diana, was nowhere to be found.

    And, oddly, the copyright of the photos was included in the caption.

    One was copyrighted to the Royal Collection Trust, while the other specifically stated that it was copyrighted to “Her Majesty The Queen Consort”.

    All of this combined caused anger among some.

    One wrote: “Noticed how you didn't post the mother of the next king.”

    This comment received more than 540 likes.

    “Maybe, someday when William will be King, Lady D can be respected and uploaded in royal account," said another.

    However, the post still amassed more than 432,000 likes in just 16 hours.

    The Daily Star has contacted Buckingham Palace for a comment.
