Now we know where Prince George gets his cute personality from. Yesterday, Prince Charles released a short home video in honor of Mother's Day in the United Kingdom, and the charming 50-second clip is filled with adorable never-before-seen mother-son moments.

"Today, we’re sharing this video of The Queen and The Prince of Wales having fun at home in 1949. Happy #MothersDay!" the official Clarence House Twitter account wrote alongside the short video, which shows the then Princess Elizabeth (she wouldn't become queen for another three years) playing games and enjoying some too-cute tickle sessions with her 1-year-old son.

The rarely-seen footage comes about a month after the world was treated to an especially lovely throwback photo of Queen Elizabeth at age 13. Here's hoping these vintage flashbacks continue.
