Kate and William’s ‘Christmas card photo’ is leaked on Facebook

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‘s Christmas 2020 card featuring their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, has been shared online by a royal fan.

In an adorable snap, all the family are wearing cosy winter clothes with the oldest child Prince George, seven, sitting next to his father, Prince William.

Princess Charlotte, five, is seen sitting on her mother Kate Middleton’s lap wearing a Ralph Lauren jumper, while the youngest of the clan Prince Louis, two, nestles between his parents, both 38.

The sweet family snap, which shows the group sitting on haystacks in front of firewood, was shared by fan page Royalty 101, and has not been officially released by Kensington Palace.

The card is addressed ‘To all the amazing NHS staff,’ with the message: ‘Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year’.

Inside, there is a handwritten note from William, according to Hello.

 He writes: ‘We can never thank you again for all the dedication and sacrifice you have had to make this year. We will be forever grateful.’ 

The card is signed by William and Catherine.

Already taking after her mother in the style stakes, Princess Charlotte sports a green Intarsia Wool-Blend jumper from Ralph Lauren, which is currently sold out online. 

It’s not known where the shot was taken but the Cambridges have spent most of lockdown at their Anmer Hall residence in Norfolk, and their previous cards have been taken there. 

The shot is decidedly more festive than the family’s 2019 card, which saw the family pose with a vintage khaki-coloured motorbike, in a sunny setting.

Social media posts from the time showed the message inside the card, which read 'Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year' - and is signed in black pen by 'Catherine'.

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

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

The youngsters were taken by William and Kate to a special pantomime performance at The London Palladium, hosted by The National Lottery, which 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 experience of a royal box, chatting excitedly (with the Duchess of Cambridge) as they waited for the start of the performance of 'Pantoland', starring Julian Clary and Elaine Page

Holding their parents’ hands tightly, they walked up to the the theatre, entranced by the sight of an elf juggling snowballs.

Little Louis, smartly dressed in blue cardigan was with his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, elegant in a Alessandra Rich dress, while his brother, George looking more grown up than ever in a striped jumper, held onto the duke.

Feisty Charlotte happily walked on her own, kicking her legs in a grey and black tartan dress, shrugging off her father’s guiding arm.

William nipped downstairs and onto the stage make a speech before the start of the show leaving Louis sitting on his mother’s lap.

The second in line to the throne thanked Britain’s key workers and sweetly marked the death of Dame Barbara Windsor, a fitting tribute given her frequent appearance as a pantomime star.

He said: ‘Before I go on, I want to pause and pay tribute to a true national treasure, Dame Barbara Windsor, who so sadly passed away last night.

‘She was a giant of the entertainment world, and of course a legend on pantomime stages across the country including here at the London Palladium. And I know we’ll all miss her hugely.’

He told the audience sitting in family groups with social distancing between them: ‘It’s wonderful to be back here in the West End and see theatres reopening their doors….Catherine, George, Charlotte, Louis and I are all really looking forward to the show.

‘We are here tonight for a very special performance. Special, because of you – the key workers here in the audience.

‘You include community workers, volunteers, teachers, NHS staff, representatives from the emergency services and military, researchers working on the vaccine, people helping the homeless, those manning vital call centres, and staff from a wide range of frontline charities – to name but a few.

‘You have given your absolute all this year, and made remarkable sacrifices.

‘So too have your families, who I’m sure have seen far less of you than they would have liked. It’s lovely that you are all here together tonight.

‘You are representative of the huge number of people across the UK who have stepped forward to make a difference this year in so many crucial ways. The country owes you a huge debt of gratitude.

‘I hope you all thoroughly enjoy yourselves this evening. It is the least we could do to thank you for everything you do – day in, day out – to keep our country safe and look after those who need help the most.

 ‘From all of us – we wish you all a very Happy Christmas!’
