Kate and William's Christmas card photo leaked on Facebook


The 2020 Christmas card of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis was shared online by a royal fan.

At one delightful moment, the whole family is wearing cozy winter clothes with the eldest child, Prince George, seven, sitting next to his father, Prince William.

Five-year-old Princess Charlotte sits on her mother Kate Middleton's lap, while the youngest of the clan, Prince Louis, two, nestles between his parents, both 38 years old.

The cute family snapshot of the group sitting on haystacks in front of firewood was shared by the royalty 101 fan site and was not officially released by Kensington Palace.

The card is addressed to “All the Amazing NHS Staff” with the message “Happy Christmas and New Years”.

It is not known where the shot was taken, but the Cambridges spent most of the lock at their Norfolk Hall residence and their previous cards were taken there.

The shot is decidedly more festive than the family's 2019 card, where the family posed in a sunny setting on a khaki vintage motorcycle.

Social media posts from that period featured the message on the card that read, "I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year," and it was signed with a black pen by "Catherine".

It comes after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave their children an early Christmas treat yesterday with a pantomime excursion in London's West End.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis had a ball together on their first official royal red carpet

The youngsters were taken by William and Kate to a special pantomime performance at the London Palladium hosted by The National Lottery. This was held to thank key workers and their families for their phenomenal efforts this year.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis had their first experiences with a royal box and chatted excitedly (with the Duchess of Cambridge) as they await the start of the performance of & # 39; Pantoland & # 39; with Julian Clary and Elaine Page waited

They grabbed their parents' hands and went to the theater, fascinated by the sight of an elf juggling snowballs.

Little Louis, elegantly dressed in a blue cardigan, was elegant with his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, in an Alessandra Rich dress, while his brother George, looking more adult than ever in a striped sweater, held the Duke in place.

Feisty Charlotte happily walked alone, kicking her legs in a gray and black tartan dress and shrugging off her father's lead arm.

William went down the stairs and gave a speech on the stage before the show began. Louis sat on his mother's lap.

The second to the throne thanked Britain's most important workers and marked the death of Dame Barbara Windsor, a fitting tribute to her frequent appearance as a mime star.

He said, “Before I proceed I would like to pause and pay tribute to a true national treasure, Lady Barbara Windsor, who passed away so sadly last night.

“She was an entertainment giant and of course a legend on pantomime stages across the country, including here at the London Palladium. And I know we will all miss them very much. & # 39;

He told the audience, who sat in family groups with social distance between them, “It's wonderful to be back here in the West End and to see theaters reopen their doors … Catherine, George, Charlotte, Louis and I are delighted we all really care about the show.

& # 39; We're here tonight to do a very special job. Special, because of you – the key workers here in the audience.

“This includes community workers, volunteers, teachers, NHS workers, emergency services and the military, researchers working on the vaccine, people helping the homeless, people staffing key call centers, and staff from a variety of frontline charities Front – to name a few but a few.

“You have done your best all year long and made remarkable sacrifices.

“Also your families, who I am sure they have seen far less of you than they would like. It's nice that you are all here tonight.

“You are representative of the great number of people across the UK who have made a difference in so many crucial ways this year. The country owes you a great deal of thanks.

“I hope you all have a good time tonight. It is the least we can do to thank you for all that you do day in and day out to protect our country and to take care of those who need help most.

"From all of us – we wish you all a Merry Christmas!"
