Royal Family releases adorable Christmas cards

Royal Family releases adorable Christmas cards

It's become an annual tradition for the royals to reveal which of their favourite photographs they've chosen for the cards they send out each Christmas. But it's definitely fitting.

The Duchess of Sussex (37) is unhappy that she can't speak out on social media about the rumours surrounding her and her family.

Kensington Palace has shared a candid snap of the Duke and Duchess of Camrbidge with their three young children which will feature on the the family's Christmas card this year. In fact, according to the Sun newspaper, Meghan and prince Harry will not be together for Christmas morning.

In the family photo, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are sitting outdoors in jeans with their kids playfully posed around them.

It's their first Christmas card as a married couple, and their last as just a married couple; Meghan is pregnant with the couple's first child, so next year's Christmas card could look quite different. The photo shows the couple from behind as they enjoy fireworks set off at their reception at Frogmore House.

Harry is in a suit while Meghan is wearing the white halter-neck gown she chose for the reception after their wedding at St George's Chapel at Windsor.

In the photo, shot from behind, Prince Harry wears his dapper evening tux as he stands with his arm around his new wife.

The picture, taken by Matt Porteous in the autumn, was released by Kensington Palace this morning and is markedly less formal than their choice previous year.

Princess Charlotte is also rocking a blue knitted cardigan that was seen previously in photos around the birth of Prince Louis, because the royals are nothing if not frugal.

Of course, next year the two should have a new member of the family to show off after the palace announced in October that Meghan was expecting.
