The Royal Family's Christmas Cards

Duchess Catherine, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis

The Royal Family's 2018 Christmas cards were released last Friday and they are simply beautiful. William and Kate opted for a family portrait taken a few months ago, just as the leaves were turning, while Meghan and Harry chose a wedding photo they had not yet shared before. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Prince Charles and Camilla all released their festival greeting cards last Friday and we have to say the Royals have done particularly well this year photo-wise!

William and Kate's card features a family portrait taken last autumn by photographer Matt Porteous. The Cambridges are both sitting on a tree trunk in woodland at their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte cheekily grinning at the camera as they balance on the trunk next to their parents and Kate cradling Prince Louis.  

Meghan and Harry chose a photo taken other wedding night by photographer Chris Allerton. The photo shows the couple in silhouette from behind, with their arms wrapped around each other, enjoying the fireworks at their wedding reception in the grounds of Frogmore House, the 17th century royal residence that will soon be their new home. The black and white photo evokes pure summer romance and we love it.

Prince Charles and Camilla's card features a photograph taken by Hugo Burnard. The photo pictures the heir to the throne and his wife gazing at each other lovingly on a bench in their Clarence House garden. A fitting motif for Charles, considering his love of all things green, gardening and the environment! Inside they have kept the message traditional and it reads, "Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year".
