Okay, okay! The festive season might be just a memory as you slide your way into the new year, but the Christmas card sent out by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last year has been made public and it’s making its way around the internet.
Because the card sent to Starts at 60 must have been lost in the post, we refer you to this lucky recipient, who revealed that the annual holiday greeting from Prince William, his wife Catherine and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte features the family during their trip to Canada in 2016.
A lovely royal surprise arrived today! This photo taken by Arthur Edwards in Victoria, BC was used as The #Cambridges’ Christmas / thank you card. Absolutely adore George & Charlotte! 💋 #royalmail #postcard #PrinceWilliam #DukeofCambridge #DuchessofCambridge #Kate #PrinceGeorge #PrincessCharlotte #KensingtonPalace #igerslondon #twitter
The photo shows 19-month-old Princess Charlotte and three-year-old Prince George being held by their parents, with the whole family completely in awe of a balloon artist. You might remember the photograph being snapped at a garden party for military families.
It was a pretty happy time for this royal family. Both Princess Charlotte and Prince George happily ran about the grounds, chasing bubbles and spending time having fun with the animals in a petting zoo.
“A lovely surprise in the mail!” the recipient wrote, and we’d agree.
