Kensington Palace have released new photos of the Cambridges and the Sussexes, just in time for Christmas.

Kate and William are pictured with their three children George, 5, Charlotte, 3, and seven-month-old Prince Louis within the grounds of their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

Taken by photographer Matt Porteous in autumn, mum Kate, rewears her Fjallraven ‘Ovik’ sweater in frost green, skinny jeans and her Asprey Oak Leaf earrings, and proudly holds her youngest son Louis, who is smiling directly at the camera.

Proud dad William, clad in a check shirt and jeans has one arm around daughter Charlotte, while George leans on his father as he balances on the tree trunk.

We’re used to seeing the royals in shift dresses and suits but the family-of-five look right at home as they co-ordinate in casual country ensembles in hues of denim, navy and khaki.

Charlotte is once again sporting her big brother’s Fina Ejerique sweater, which she wore for the official portraits of her kissing her new baby brother Louis, taken in May.

George, who usually wears shorts and long socks, dons light blue jeans, a ribbed jumper with red piping and Hunter Wellington boots

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have used the gorgeous family photo for their official Christmas card this year.

The last time we saw the five of them in public was for Prince Louis’ christening in July, however a series of photos of them with Charles, Camilla, Meghan and Harry were released last month to commemorate the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday.

The photograph taken by Chris Allerton, shows the couple embracing as they watch a fireworks display across the lake.

Harry is wearing a black tux, while Meghan, who wore a wedding dress by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy at the ceremony, wears her second gown by Stella McCartney.

The couple, who are expecting their first child in spring 2019, are moving to Frogmore Cottage,  a 10-bedroom grade II listed house in the grounds of Frogmore House.
