Royal Family members reveal Christmas cardimages. King Charles III chose a picture from his coronation earlier this year. The happy card, which is their second holiday season as king and queen consort, has a picture of the happy couple with a simple but classy red border around it. Hugo Burnand took the picture that they picked, which is of the two of them in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace after they were crowned on May 6.
The Prince and Princess of Wales have also shared a black-and-white picture of their family. The family is seen grouped around Princess Charlotte, who is sitting in a chair.
Princess Kate and Prince William family monochrome Christmas card
It's almost Christmas for royal fans! This weekend, both the Prince and Princess of Wales and the King and Queen showed off their yearly Christmas cards.
Princess Kate and Prince William sent out their Christmas card on Saturday with a new picture of the family. This picture gives us a new look at their kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
The black-and-white picture is different for William and Kate; for their holiday cards, they usually choose colorful photos taken outside. The family is seen in a picture studio instead of outside to show off the view from their new home in Windsor.
The picture was taken earlier this year in Windsor by Josh Shinner. It shows all five of them wearing button-down shirts that match. Kate and Charlotte, who is eight years old, wear shorts, but William and George are seen in pants. There are shorts on 5-year-old Louis in the picture.
This year was important for William and Kate because they became even more comfortable with their royal roles as Prince and Princess of Wales. William's important role in the succession plan was shown when he knelt down in front of his father to honor him after King Charles was crowned.
Hugo Burnand, a photographer, took a shot of the King and Queen standing next to each other. Charles was wearing the imperial state crown and Camilla was wearing Queen Mary's crown.
A crowning tunic and the robe of estate are also shown on the King. The robe was made of purple silk satin and had gold on it. King George VI wore it in 1937. The Queen is wearing her robe of estate, which was created and made by hand by the Royal School of Needlework and made by Ede and Ravenscroft. Her crowning dress, which was made by Bruce Oldfield, is also worn. The picture, which was taken on May 6, 2023, the day of the coronation, was chosen for the couple's second Christmas card since Charles became king.
Senior royals often put out official holiday pictures that people can use on their Christmas cards to send to friends, family, and coworkers. The picture that Charles and Camilla picked is of them at the Braemar Royal Highland Gathering in September of last year, just a few days before his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died. It was a picture of the Prince and Princess of Wales going hand-in-hand with their children on a sunny summer day in Norfolk.
This year's Christmas card is a picture of the King and Queen taken at Buckingham Palace on the day they were crowned. The official picture of Charles and Camilla in the palace throne room after the coronation is different from the casual picture of the Prince and Princess of Wales' family.
