Prince William and Wife Release Official Portrait For Their 2018 Family Christmas Card
Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton have released the official portrait they intend to use for their family Christmas card this year. The picture features the royal couple and their kids, 5-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte and 8-month-old Prince Louis with Prince Louis making his first appearance in their Christmas card. The holiday portrait appears particularly unexpected and was taken at their home in Norfolk.
It is a constant yearly tradition for the Royals to share their card for the holiday with the general public. In 2017, they shot their portrait during summer and the family of 4 at the time wore blue ensembles.
Christmas Events Of the Royal Family
The Royals are getting involved in a lot of events this period. Earlier this season, Kate and Princess Charlotte were at The Nutcracker ballet event. Also, Prince William and Kate joined the military families in Cyprus to celebrate this season. Further, together with their kids, sources say they will also join Prince Harry and other members of the royal family for the Christmas celebration in Sandringham with the Queen.
Both couples had a notable first Christmas last year as Meghan for the first time walked to the church together with other members of the royal family on the 25th of December 2017. According to a source, they loved Christmas last year and they all had a good time together.
Another yearly tradition of the royal family is to join the Queen in Norfolk for the Christmas celebrations. Most times, the guests arrive the day before Christmas. The royal family opens the presents on that day and not Christmas Day. After leaving the church on Christmas day, they head back to the Sandringham House to have lunch and also other festivities.
Prince Louis’ Rare Picture
Sources report that Will and Kate have also started their own tradition, one of which is the family Christmas portrait. They are not the only ones who have made public their Christmas portrait. Prince Harry and Meghan are also seen in their watching fireworks in a black and white picture. Harry and Meghan are pictured with arms around each other. The picture was taken at their house in Frogmore and their backs are turned to the camera.
Princess Charlotte is pictured standing between Prince Harry and Kate Middleton. Prince George is seen wearing a pair of wellies and grinning lifting one of his legs with his hands placed on the shoulders of his father.
This picture is one of the rare times when Prince Louis has been sighted publicly since his birth in April. The 8-month-old Prince has only been seen in 2 major appearances. The first was on the day he was birthed and left the hospital. The other day was his christening which held in July. Other cameos of the prince have been in official portraits like the ones gotten from his baptism as well as the 70th birthday celebration of his grandfather, Prince Charles. Their photo this year appears to be more casual than that from last year.
In 2016, the portrait on their Christmas card was a picture featuring Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George as well as Prince Charlotte from a Canada trip. They were pictured standing in awe of one balloon artist at a party which was for military families.
In 2014, the family used a picture from the first birthday of Prince George as the portrait for their family Christmas card.
In 2015, it was Charlotte’s first time appearing on the family Christmas card. It was photographed by Chris Jelf and was shot in Kensington Palace’s gardens sometime in October. In the picture, autumnal colors surrounded the family. In 2014, the family used a picture from the first birthday of Prince George as the portrait for their Christmas card.
George who was two years at the time was pictured wearing dungarees and sitting on his mom’s laps trying to reach out to a butterfly that was on his father’s hand. 2013 marked the first Christmas of Prince George. The couple used a picture from his christening as the portrait for their Christmas family card. George is pictured sitting on Kate’s lap and he raised his arms.
