Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George. Royally adorable! Kensington Palace shared Prince William and Duchess Kate’s Christmas card on Friday, December 14, and the picture features kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

While George, 5, and Charlotte, 3, leaned on William, 36, in the sweet snap, Kate, also 36, held 8-month-old Louis. The candid pic is more informal than last year’s Christmas card, which featured the then family of four in coordinating blue outfits. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family,” the palace wrote alongside the photo on Friday via Twitter. “The photograph, taken by Matt Porteous, shows The Duke and Duchess with their three children at Anmer Hall, and features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year.” [ami-related id=”- Click to search articles -” url=”https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/pictures/prince-william-duchess-kates-sweetest-moments-with-their-kids/” title=”Prince William and Duchess Kate’s Sweetest Moments With Their Kids” target=”” inset=”true”] The palace also shared new photos of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, who wed in May, and Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla in honor of the holidays.

The duo were all smiles at the bash, which even included fake snow.
