Kensington Palace reveals brand new Christmas portrait of the Cambridges

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis look adorable in the brand new Cambridge Christmas card, released today by Kensington Palace.

The three little ones appear in a very festive mood with mum Kate and dad William, in what is Prince Louis’ first appearance in the Cambridges Christmas card.

The adorable family posed in casual clothes at Anmer Hall, with Kate and William sitting on a tree trunk and George and Charlotte standing on it.

Alongside the picture, the tweet read: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family.
‘The photograph, taken by Matt Porteous, shows The Duke and Duchess with their three children at Anmer Hall, and features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year.’

Prince Louis is in his mum’s arms and we can’t believe how grown-up he is!

Royal fans were quick to gush about the snap, with one saying: ‘Lovely to see Louis, George is growing fast but Charlotte.. I mean look at Charlotte..Have a feeling that young lady will very likely change the World 👍😚’.

Another said: ‘What a beautiful photo 💕’.

This is the Cambridges’ first festive card as a family of five, after Prince Louis was born last April. They were pictured all together for the first time in July, when Louis was christened, and they also appeared in Prince Charles’ birthday portrait last month, alongside the birthday man himself, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The release of the traditional Christmas card comes just a week before Christmas, which is certainly a very exciting for the three little ones, as Kate recently revealed they were getting ready for the big day.

She told well-wishers: ‘The [kids] are doing well thank you. Getting excited for Christmas time because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and Christmas trees are going up and stuff.’

It’s since been confirmed the Cambridges will be spending Christmas with the Royal Family in Sandrigham, after reports had suggested they might be spending the holidays with Kate’s family in Berkshire.

George and Charlotte will also probably be very excited to be heading to Gan Gan’s royal estate, as Christmas with the Windsors means they get to open their presents on Christmas Eve – a German tradition the Queen has kept due to the family’s origins.

The little royal duo will however miss out on grandma Carole’s sweet Christmas tradition – she revealed she sets a Christmas tree up in each of her grand children’s bedrooms, so they can decorate it themselves.

And while little Louis is still too young to be taking part in most festive traditions, it will be a very special time for the family to be spending their first holiday season as a fivesome!
