Prince William and Kate Middleton have finally unveiled the Cambridge family Christmas card for 2021, featuring a seriously cute, brand new photograph of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
- The Cambridge family Christmas card for this year has been shared on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's social media platforms.
- This year, the annual card displays a sweet snap of Kate Middleton, Prince William and their royal little ones smiling beside each other during a family trip to Jordan.
- This royal news comes after a video of the Queen's horrified reaction to Prince George making Christmas puddings went viral again.
Blessing royal supporters with a brand new look at how Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are looking as they grow up, Kate and William took to social media to share this year's addition to their yearly Christmas card tradition.
"Delighted to share a new image of the family, which features on this year’s Christmas card 🎄," a simple caption read beside the special image of the beloved royals, which was taken by photographer Matt Porteous.
The summery snap shows the family, who primarily live at Kensington Palace in London, posing together during their private trip away to Jordan earlier this year. Kate can be seen beaming with one hand on husband William's knee and the other on first-born son Prince George's back.
The Duchess is wearing a gorgeous khaki green dress in the special photograph, while her three children look relaxed and casual.
George is sporting a camouflage print shirt with shorts and navy trainers, while his little brother Louis can be seen in a blue striped polo and co-ordinating shorts.
Taking a leaf from her ever-stylish mother's book, Princess Charlotte is posing in a pretty blue gingham dress with frilly sleeves while perching on a saddle with a sweet smirk on her face.
This year's Cambridge family Christmas card shot is entirely opposite to last year's, which was an ultra-wintery photo of the family of five posing in cosy knitted jumpers, jeans and boots. The image shows them huddled together on hay bales with a huge stack of logs in the background.
The 2020 Christmas release was also courtesy of royal photographer Matt Porteous, but instead of being taken on a hot summer's day abroad, it was posed for in the chilly autumnal air in the ground of the Cambridge's Norfolk home, Amner Hall and taken on the same day as the beautiful video shared for Kate and William's 10th wedding anniversary was filmed.
Reacting to the 2021 Cambridge family Christmas card photograph, royal fans flooded the comment section beneath the Instagram upload with love.
"What a beautiful family photo. Thank you for sharing. It’s lovely to see the children," one wrote.
"Such a wonderful picture. Kids are all growing up and looking amazing," another agreed.
"I’m melting! Such a beautiful family ❤️," a third chipped in, while others swooned over Princess Charlotte's luscious brunette locks.
"LITTLE LOTTIE'S HAIR IS SHINING LIKE RAPUNZELS," another awe-struck commenter typed.
