The Duchess of Cambridge shared a rare photo of her whole family in her Christmas cards this year.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are rarely photographed in public so we were delighted to see their Christmas card shared on Twitter by Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty.

The photo shows the three children, alongside Kate Middleton and Prince William sitting on an old-fashioned motorbike with accompanying sidecar.

It shows them dressed all in blue in somewhat summery clothes, not quite befitting of the weather outside.

The tweet read: “A Christmas card from our Royal Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, which I share with all members of the aircadets. We send HRH and her family all best wishes for Christmas and hope to see her again in 2020.”

The picture comes just moments after we caught a glimpse of Prince Louis in the car on the way to the Queen’s Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.

The royal children will spend Christmas day at Sandringham with the Queen. It’s believed that George and Charlotte will attend the Christmas day church service with the royal family for the first time this Christmas.

In previous Christmas photos, they’ve been seen in Bucklebury where the family spend Christmas with Kate Middleton’s family, but never with the rest of the royal family in Norfolk.

The Duchess was seen driving to Buckingham Palace with her children in a festive tartan outfit.

The Duchess’ red ensemble was from one of her go-to designer’s, Emilia Wickstead. As the images just show her in the car, it’s unclear whether she’s wearing a dress or a skirt and jacket separately.

It’s likely the former as Kate wore a skirt in the same print to host a lunch for military personal at Kensington Palace last December.

The family will enjoy a festive feast, most likely compromising the Queen’s mince pies. Please send any leftovers our way.
