If you thought Prince William and Kate Middleton and their adorable kids, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, couldn't get any more stunning, think again. The royal family has released their annual holiday card, and it's as perfect as you can possibly imagine. The family of four -- but almost five, of course, as they're anticipating the arrival of baby #3! -- are dressed in coordinating shades of light blue, powder blue in the photo, which was taken by Chris Jackson, royal photographer for Getty Images. According to People, Jackson also took Prince George's fourth birthday photo this summer, while the royal family was visiting Canada. This shot was likely taken on the same day as that one, as George is wearing the same outfit.
“Delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to use this family portrait I shot as their Christmas Card this year,” Jackson wrote alongside the photo on Instagram. “Merry Christmas!"
Kensington Palace's official Instagram also shared the beautiful photo alongside the caption: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family. The image features on Their Royal Highnesses' Christmas card this year. The photograph shows The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their two children at Kensington Palace. It was taken earlier this year by @chrisjacksongetty." The caption goes onto share additional happy news involving the youngest Cambridge: "Their Royal Highnesses have also announced this morning that Princess Charlotte will attend the Willcocks Nursery School in London from January 2018. The Willcocks Nursery School has said: 'We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte. We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January.'"
Kate and Wills believe Willcocks will be "an ideal first step for Charlotte’s education, and they were impressed by the team who work there," a royal source tells People.
Given Charlotte's next chapter, baby #3 on the way, not to mention Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big engagement and wedding date news, there's so much excitement swirling around the lovely young family! Wishing them nothing but continued health and happiness this holiday season!
