The royal family Christmas card is finally here! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were "pleased to share a new photograph of their family" this morning. According to the Kensington Palace Twitter account, this is the image that will feature "on Their Royal Highnesses' Christmas card this year."

Unlike in 2016, when the royal Christmas card used a candid shot from the royal tour of Canada, the Cambridges chose a more formal photograph for the 2017 mailing. The portrait was taken by Getty royal photographer Chris Jackson "earlier this year."

"Delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen to use this family portrait I shot as their Christmas Card this year," Jackson said via Twitter. "Merry Christmas!"


Given that Kate is sporting long hair, and no baby bump, I'd guess it was taken sometime over the summer. In the photo, she's wearing the pale blue Catherine Walker skirt suit she first wore on her solo tour of the Netherlands back in October of 2016.

Princess Charlotte is following her mother's lead. In the photo, the young royal appears to be wearing the same blue patterned dress that she previously wore on the royal tour of Germany earlier this year.
