The caption of their picture said, “Sharing a new picture of the family for this year’s Christmas card!”
They shared it on social media.
This cute picture was taken by photographer Matt Porteous earlier this year in Norfolk. The family is known to spend lots of time at their country home in Ammer Hall, which is part of the royal family’s Sandringham estate.
Middleton has shared that this is where she feels most at home.
Last year, Prince William and Princess Kate chose a previously unseen photo showing them posed with their kids during a private family trip to Jordan.
The country holds significance for Kate, as she lived in Jordan for two years as a child when her father worked for British Airways. Prince William also previously visited Jordan as part of his tour of the Middle East in 2018.
For 2019’s picture, the family of five were wearing cozy sweaters on a haystack in front of a large pile of logs also at Ammer Hall. They are all seen wearing a big smile on all of their faces.
Royal Kids Having a Royally Fun Month
The young royal kids are probably celebrating Christmas at school. According to the school’s website, “Christmas festivities and opportunities make it even more special for our pupils, with every single child performing in a Christmas event, including Christingles, Nativities, Pre Prep House singing competitions and of course, our end of term Carol Service.”
The family is also preparing for their first holiday season since the death of Queen Elizabeth in September.
Following the royal traditions, the royal family is set to spend Christmas Day at Sandringham. During the Queen’s life, she would take the train from London to Norfolk in December to spend the holidays with her family. She would usually stay at Sandringham until the anniversary of her father King George VI’s death and her accession to the throne in early February.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the royal family was separated for the past two Christmases. In 2020, the Queen and Prince Philip spent the holidays at Windsor Castle apart from the rest of the family.
Each Christmas, the royal family makes a trip to St. Mary Magdalene church for mass, as they wish people well-wishes. They then head back to Sandringham to enjoy a traditional turkey holiday dinner.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte made their Christmas morning debut alongside the royals for their annual walk to church services in 2019.
The King shares, “This year’s carol service is dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth IIand the values Her Majesty demonstrated throughout her life, including duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion and support for others,” Buckingham Palace said in a press release. “These principles are shared and personified by the inspirational guests who have been invited to the Abbey in recognition of their tireless work to help and care for those around them.”
Readings during the holidays will be delivered by members of the family.
