For Mother's Day in the UK - Sunday 6 March - The Body Shop produced this short film featuring lookalikes of our Royal Family. Similar to last year's film 'Mother's Day for HM The Queen (2015)', their latest 'candid camera' takes the action out of the castle and into the rose gardens. Once again it's warm, humorous and fast-paced, as the lookalikes give us a fictional and bumbling window into a Royal 'Mummy's Day', even if they do repeat the joke of Prince Harry caddishly showing us a glimpse of his Union Jack briefs.

Thea Hamrén, Associate Creative Director at Mr. President, the agency behind the film, told Adland:

Mother's Day is about making that extra bit of effort for your mum whether she's HRH the Queen or not, and The Body Shop is the place to find her the perfect gift. We're excited to continue to build on The Body Shop's mission to treat every mum like a queen on Mother's Day, with a big dose of British irreverence, and this year, a big bunch of British Roses.

Director/photographer and 'Queen of Look-a-Likes’, Alison Jackson, was once again behind making this look and feel almost too real.
