Middleton, 36, is holding Louis, who is dressed in a sweater and navy blue shorts and tights. Prince William, 36, has his arm around three-year-old Charlotte as George, 5, leans on his shoulders.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family,” the palace tweeted.

“The photograph, taken by Matt Porteous, shows The Duke and Duchess with their three children at Anmer Hall, and features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year.”

The palace also released a Christmas card photo of Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle, 37, taken at their wedding reception in May.

The photo is a black and white shot of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex embracing while watching fireworks.

“The photograph, which features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card, was taken by photographer Chris Allerton,” the palace tweeted.

Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child together, due spring 2019.

Prince Charles, 70, and wife Camilla, 71, shared their Christmas card photo, too.
