This year’s royal Christmas cards

The King and Queen and the Waleses have shared the photos on their cards

It’s that time of year when Royals share their Christmas cards for the festive season. We have seen The King and Queen’s first photo in their new role, as well as The Prince and Princess of Wales and their family.

Charles and Camilla’s card shows an image taken at the Braemar Games in September, just days before the death of the late Queen. Elizabeth II missed the event due to her mobility issues at the time.

Princess Anne joined them at the event.

The King is wearing a tweed jacket and tie, while the Queen is in a green jacket and hat to take in the Highland Games.

Meanwhile William and Catherine’s card is an informal family snap. The group-of-five walk down a path holding hands, smiling at the camera in Norfolk, suspected to be at Anmer Hall. The family are dressed casually in what appears to be summer attire.

It was taken by Matt Porteous who has previously photographed the family.

It is not unusual for the senior royal couple to choose a public image for their card, while the heir to the throne and his family often share a new image.

Members of the public might wish to send their own cards to the Royal Family; we have tips on how to do just that here.

The pictures are lovely but it would be a real treat if one year we get a more Christmas-themed picture such a the family in the snow or decorating a Christmas tree…
