Young Queen Elizabeth plays with Prince Charles as a toddler in 1949 royal video

Everyone is enthralled with the adorable royals Princess Charlotte and Prince George, but it turns out they may have gotten their adorable sensibilities from their grandfather.

Clarence House — the official residence of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall — published footage Sunday on Twitter showing Prince Charles as toddler playing with his mother, a young Queen Elizabeth.

The video was posted to social media in honor of Queen Elizabeth on yesterday's "Mothering Sunday," the U.K.'s version of Mother's Day. The tweet with the video read, "Today, we're sharing this video of The Queen and The Prince of Wales having fun at home in 1949. Happy #MothersDay!"

The video, titled "Princes Charles at Home," says it was "produced by H.R.H. the Princess Elizabeth," which is fitting as she did not take the throne until three years later, in 1952.

The footage shows Prince Charles as an adorable tot playing with his mother, who gives her son blocks to play with, waves at him from a window as he stands outside, and tickles him on a couch.
