The royal family gets into the Christmas spirit.
On Wednesday, Kate Middleton and Prince William shared a photo of their family that will appear on their Christmas card via their official Twitter account.
In the beautiful photo, the Duke and Duchess, both 38, are holding their three children – George, 7, Charlotte, 5, and Louis, 2 – sitting on a hay bale smiling. Louis especially has a broad grin.
A short message was added to the photo.

“The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new image of their family, which will be on their Christmas card this year,” the tweet said.
The note ended with a Christmas tree emoji, offering photographer Matt Porteous credit for the photo.
The photographer also shared the image on his own Instagram and posted a short quote.
“It was an honor to photograph the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family,” he wrote. “It is always a privilege to capture the fun and relaxing moments between such a wonderful family.”
