And finally, the much-anticipated Christmas portrait from The Prince and Princess of Wales has been released. Once again the family picture is from their country haven Norfolk and was taken by the familiar family photographer Matt Porteous earlier this year.

In the newly released picture, Prince William and Princess Catherine are taking a walk with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Wales family have a family home on the King’s Sandringham Estate – Anmer Hall. Anmer Hall was a wedding gift to William and Catherine by the late Queen Elizabeth II in 2011.
Since its renovation, the home has been the family’s favourite place for weekends and holidays. Prince George and Princess Charlotte spent the early years of their lives at the estate as The Royal Couple was still part-time royal until 2017.
We have already been amazed by the fact many times that each time we saw Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis they are a bit more grown-up. The kids are currently students of Lambrook School in Berkshire where they started this September. Their winter break starts on Friday, December 16 and lasts until January 11th, 2023.
Earlier this year, when Prince William and Princess Catherine visited Wales they said they will return before the year ends. So we might see them visiting Wales sometime before Christmas then we will see them at the Sandringham Christmas service where King Charles will be hosting the family for Christmas for the first time.
A look at the family’s Christmas Portraits since 2011. The Couple did not publicly release any pictures in 2011 and 2012. But a portrait from their Christmas card has been recently revealed. Thanks to the Women of Windsor on Twitter for making this lovely collage of the previous Christmas picture. 2017 Christmas Card picture, 2018 Christmas Card Picture, 2019 Christmas Card Picture, 2020 Christmas Card picture and 2021 Christmas Card picture details.
In the picture, The Princess of Wales is wearing her M.I.H. Jeans Mabel Shirt that she first wore in May 2019 when she visited Back to Nature Garden for the last time before it opened to the public.
The delicate $325 cotton shirt made from lightweight floral cotton Broderie Anglaise featuring floral detailing was described as, “A broderie Anglaise shirt with scallop trim on the neck and puffed sleeves”.
Catherine paired the outfit with her Superga Cotu Sneakers.
Princess Charlotte was wearing a Sfera Jumpsuit with Strawberries and Frill Motif.
Next, we will see The Princess of Wales on Thursday when she will host her second Christmas Carol service: ‘Together at Christmas‘ at Westminster Abbey will pay a tribute to her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
