The imminent arrival of Christmas is the perfect time for an update to the family portrait and it seems The Royal Family are no different in this respect.
Kensington Palace have just released a stunning photograph of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The photograph appears relaxed and casual with all members of the family sporting casual jumpers and shirts surrounded by woodland tranquility.
The little ones appear in a particularly festive mood with Prince George draping playfully around his father’s neck.
Meanwhile, the newest addition to the family, Prince Louis, sits adorably in Kate’s arms, in what will be his first appearance in the Cambridge’s Christmas card.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family.
