The Cambridges: William, Kate, George and Charlotte pose for new Christmas card

  • Kate Middleton wedding

William and George co-ordinated with a blue shirt and tie.

That might seem like a random wish, but it wasn't really.

Prince William is not the only one to have released a family Christmas card.

"The image features on Their Royal Highnesses' Christmas card this year".

The future monarch stole the spotlight and earned big laughs - especially from his wife, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge - with a brief performance of his own. Obviously, before she said "yes" to Prince William, Kate was aware of some of the truly freakish things she'd have to do from time to time. Kate, 35, chose a feminine peplum jacket and matching pencil skirt from favourite designer Catherine Walker for the shoot. With so much blue in the picture, many people are guessing this means that Kate Middleton is having a baby boy even though she doesn't look like she's pregnant in the photo.

According to a palace source, Prince William and Kate Middleton have very strict rules when it comes to their children and screen time. The image appears on the family's Christmas card. Stood in front of her mother, the toddler purses her lips into an adorable smile and rests her hands lightly on the front of her printed floral frock, which she wore previously during the royal tour to Poland. George wore blue stripes, while Charlotte looked adorable in a frock that she'd earlier worn during the royal tour to Germany previous year. Is she the most stunning Princess the Royal family has ever seen? Following the announcement from Kensington Palace that Meghan Markle would be joining the royal family for Christmas this year at Sandringham, the bride-to-be attended another firm royal family fixture for the festive season this week - the Queen's annual Christmas lunch.

Charles and Camilla are pictured dressed for a private summer party, at the prince's Highgrove home, which marked the duchess's July 17 birthday.
