It’s that time of year when families start sending out their holiday greeting cards to friends and loved ones, and the royals are no different! While we wait to hear what Queen Elizabeth has in store for her annual message on Christmas day, the younger royals have released previously unseen photos to share with us on their official Instagram pages. The photos were all taken earlier in the year, including one of Prince Harry and Meghan from their glamorous royal wedding.
From Clarence House, we get a glimpse of Prince Charles and wife Camilla cozied up on the same bench the whole brood gathered around to celebrate the future king’s 70th birthday. Just like those photos from November, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis totally steal the spotlight in their family photo with Kate and William, which was taken at Anmer Hall ealier in the fall. George even appears to be in the middle of showing off some dance moves with his rainboot-clad foot raised in the air! As for the newlyweds and soon-to-be-parents, Harry and Meghan chose a poignant moment from their May wedding which shows the couple in a touching embrace as they watched a fireworks display. You can scroll through all three of the heartwarming snapshots on the official royal family Instagram post shown below:

@ClarenceHouse and @KensingtonRoyal have today released images, which feature on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas cards this year. Swipe 👉 to see all three! The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall were photographed in the @ClarenceHouse during the summer by Hugo Burnand. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s photo was taken in the Autumn at Anmer Hall by the photographer Matt Porteous and shows The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex today shared a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May. The photograph, which was taken by photographer Chris Allerton, features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year.
It’s so nice to finally get another glimpse at how much little Prince Louis has grown since the royals welcomed him in April 2018! You can definitely see how he’s taking after his adorable siblings in the looks department. And of course, Charlotte’s sassy personality shines through the photo as well. We’re sure all three of the youngest royals will give Harry and Meghan’s baby plenty of tips on posing when it comes time for next years’ cards.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip have yet to release their own Christmas card, but we can only imagine it will be just as precious as the rest of the family’s.
