The Royal Family wants to wish you a Happy Holidays! The Cambridge, Sussex and Cornwall families released their annual Christmas cards on Friday — and they’re just as lovely and adorable as you’d expect.
The casual Cambridge family shot — say hello to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and wee Prince Louis, who is celebrating his first Christmas — will likely become the audience favourite as it features William and Kate in the countryside near their Norfolk home of Anmer Hall, with their three adorable children around them.
The photo, taken this past summer, is so much more laid-back than we’ve grown accustomed to from the Cambridge’s that even five-year-old George tossed aside his customary shorts in favour of jeans and Wellingtons.
The portrait was snapped by photographer Matt Porteous, a photographer who has worked with the Royal Family on numerous occasions over the years.
In stark contrast to the casual family affair of the Cambridge’s, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a glamorous black and white image featuring the newlyweds sharing a private moment at their May wedding reception.
In the photo, Harry and Meghan, who are expecting their first child together in the spring, have their arms around one another as they watch the fireworks display at Frogmore House in Windsor.
The intimate moment, captured by photographer Chris Allerton, has never been seen before. No doubt Harry and Meghan wanted to keep it a last-minute surprise for royal watchers.
