Happy Cambridge holidays!
Kate Middleton and the Prince William Family Christmas card were released early — and Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, are the stars.
The Christmas portrait, which was first shared by a member of the Royal Air Force who received Kate’s festive card herself (Kate is the RAF’s patron), features the family of five in one of their most candid and casual photos yet as they pose on a vintage motorcycle sidecar.
The proud parents are all smiling as William sits on the vintage bike, holding little Louis in front of him. George and Charlotte pose next to them in the Sidecar while mama Kate grabs a handlebar.

It is a tradition for the royal family to share their holiday card with the public: their 2018 card was also shot in the fall and featured the family of five people looking casual in the coordination of blue ensembles at their country house Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
The Christmas season is in full swing for the royals. The family of five gathered for the Christmas luncheon hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.
Kate was also recently released to help a group of children chooses Christmas trees for their schools. She also shared the kind of tree George, Charlotte and Louis will find their gifts under coming Christmas morning.
“She asked about the trees that fall their needles and the ones that don’t fall, and the ones that smell good!”farm owner Roger Brill said. “She said they normally have the Nordmann Fir inside that doesn’t drop the needles.”

William, Kate and the children will also join the Queen at Sandringham for Christmas with the royal family. Unlike last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not be present for this year’s festivities. “Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend the holidays this year, as a new family, with the mother of Duchess Doria Ragland,” said Buckingham Palace in a statement. “This decision is consistent with the precedent set earlier by other members of the Royal Family and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen.”
Every year, members of the royal family join Queen Elizabeth at Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England, for Christmas. Guests usually arrive in the early afternoon of Christmas Eve. (The family opens their gifts on Christmas Eve instead of on Christmas Day. After going to church on the big day, the royal family returns to Sandringham House for a Norfolk turkey lunch and other festivities.

Proud parents Kate and Will have already begun some traditions of their own. In recent years, Prince George has taken advantage of a trip to see Santa near the home of the Anmer Hall family.
