Looks like the Cambridges are all set for this year’s holiday season.
On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released the family’s annual Christmas card portrait. The royal couple, along with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, looked absolutely stunning in coordinated ensembles.
The photo, which was taken by Chris Jackson at Kensington Palace earlier this year, shows the royal family wearing matching blue outfits. Prince William opted for a black suit with a blue tie while Duchess Catherine wore an icy blue Catherine Walker suit.
The royal siblings also coordinated with their blue-themed attire. Prince George rocked a blue long-sleeve shirt matched with dark-colored shorts. Princess Charlotte, on the other hand, looked charming with her matching blue floral dress, hair bow, and shoes.
According to the Mirror, the photo was likely taken on the same day as Prince George’s birthday because he’s wearing the exact same outfit.
In the photo, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seemed very proud of their two children as they beamed in front of the camera. The 4-year-old prince, who is known for being quite shy, reached a hand back and clasped his father’s finger.
His younger sister, on the other hand, looked more confident as she stood in front of her mother while flashing an adorable smile.
