“The Prince and Princess of Wales are delighted to share a new photo of their family,” the couple said in a statement via Access Hollywood.

The statement continued: “The photograph, which features on HRH’s Christmas card this year, was taken by photographer Matt Porteous earlier this year and shows the Prince and Princess with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in Norfolk.”

The royal family were all dressed casually in no time, with William and Kate both sporting navy blue jeans. Kate wore a long-sleeved white floral top with white trainers, while William paired his jeans with a navy button-down shirt.

George wore a light blue polo shirt with navy blue shorts and Louis wore a striped polo shirt with blue jean shorts. Charlotte also wore blue jean shorts, which she paired with a short-sleeved, red-trimmed blue top.

Although the family’s primary residence is Kensington Palace, they often spend time at their country home, Anmer Hall, on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. The late Queen Elizabeth II gave Anmer Hall as a gift to William and Kate after their wedding in 2011.

Last year, William and Kate’s Christmas card featured a photo of them posing with their children during a private family vacation in Jordan.

In the photo, Kate and William wore khaki colors while George donned a camouflage collared shirt, Charlotte wore a blue gingham dress and the youngest, Louis, wore a striped shirt.

For their 2020 Christmas card, the family was pictured at the Anmer Hall in a photograph also taken by Porteous. Each family member wore a sweater and posed in front of a large pile of logs.

King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla unveiled their 2022 Christmas card on Sunday. The card featured a photo of the couple during the annual Braemar Highland Gathering at the Princess Royal & Duke of Fife Memorial Park in Scotland.

“We are delighted to share this year’s Christmas card from The king and The Queen Consort,” the royal family wrote on their official Twitter page.

The monarchy credited longtime royal photographer Samir Hussein with the image, which was “taken at the Braemar Games in September 2022”.

Traditionally, the snap was embossed in red ink and accompanied by a short and sweet message from the couple.

Printed in matching scarlet ink on the opposite side: ‘Wishing you a very happy Christmas and New Year.’

This year, the royal family will gather for their first Christmas break since the death of Queen Elizabeth II aged 96 in September. According to People magazine, King Charles will continue a beloved holiday tradition of his late mother by hosting Christmas at her beloved Sandringham estate, which he inherited after her death.

The royals have traditionally celebrated Christmas at Sandringham since 1988, but the family have had to make other plans for the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Queen Elizabeth and her late husband, Prince Phillip, spent Christmas 2020 apart from the other members of the royal family due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Last year the family had planned to return to Sandringham for Christmas but the gathering was canceled due to a spike in COVID-19 cases.

The family are expected to resume their traditional Christmas Day celebrations at Sandringham, which will include a trip to St Mary Magdalene Church for Mass on Christmas Eve.

King Charles’ first Christmas address to the Commonwealth will be broadcast at 15:00 GMT.
