The Cambridges: William, Kate, George and Charlotte pose for new Christmas card

  • Prince Charles Prince of Wales and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall's 2017 Christmas card

Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte all wore pale blue, with the Duchess of Cambridge opting for a Catherine Walker suit that seems to be a favorite piece.

The royal Christmas card is here! The family of four, soon-to-be five, are all smiles in their matching blue outfit in the picture.

While leaving the gathering with her family, the two-year-old made the cutest-and possibly confused-facial expressions from the back seat of their vehicle. Prince William's brood is not the only royal family to debut their annual holiday card today.

Albeit embarrassed, Prince William rose to his feet and performed an Oscar-worthy gallop sans horse, and even Kate Middleton couldn't contain her laughter.

Kim also launched a solo career in 2015, with his debut studio album "She Is" peaking at No. 1 on the South Korean charts. Earlier this year, the group went on a world tour that took in the U.S. and released their fifth album, titled Five.


The Cambridges' photo was shared on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account with the short statement: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family".

The young prince, who is understood to be quite shy, looks slightly uncertain about being in front of the camera and reaches a hand back to clasp his father's finger. And of course, that's one of the many reasons we love her. Courtesy of royal photographer Chris Jackson, the Palace noted that the shot was "taken earlier this year" with no date specified - though it's worth noting it's not particularly festive, so was presumably taken before any holiday sweaters (or ties!) were on sale. George wore blue stripes, while Charlotte looked adorable in a frock that she'd earlier worn during the royal tour to Germany a year ago.

Charles and Camilla are pictured dressed for a private summer party, at the prince's Highgrove home, which marked the duchess's July 17 birthday.
