Kate Middleton & Prince William's Newest Family Photo Is Out & We're Obsessed With Their Low-Key Vibe

Kate Middleton and Prince William just released their 2022 Christmas card photo — and it defines the theme of the holiday season this year. Comfy and casual is officially in!

“Sharing a new picture of the family for this year’s Christmas card! 🎄📸 @mattporteous,” the Prince and Princess of Wales shared on Instagram yesterday. The photo was taken by Matt Porteous earlier this year in Norfolk, England, as Middleton, Prince William, and their kids Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, walk hand in hand down a country lane.

The family of five are all wearing denim for this gorgeous photo. Princess Kate is dressed in a white button-down top with dark blue skinny jeans, paired with white sneakers. She’s holding Prince Louis’s hand, who is clad in a striped polo shirt tucked into denim shorts. Princess Charlotte is in the middle, wearing a cute denim romper with red embroidery and navy blue tennis shoes. Her long blonde hair is blowing in the wind as she grins for the camera, looking so grown up!

Prince George is on the left of Princess Charlotte, wearing a blue polo shirt, denim shorts, and sneakers. Standing next to his dad, you can really see how tall he’s getting. The eldest little royal almost reaches Prince William’s shoulder! For his part, Prince William is also casually dressed in a blue button-down shirt tucked into jeans with sneakers.

The sun is shining, the whole family is smiling, and we are absolutely obsessed with this family photo. The kids lined up in age order? The cozy country walk? The jeans?! It’s absolutely fabulous. For the family that often gets so dressed up for royal events, this laidback photo shows a peek into their regular lives, and it’s full of so much joy.

Fans thought so too, with many people commenting on the style choice. “If Kate says skinny jeans are still in style then I’m in,” one person wrote.

“Looking summery ❤️ Where has the warm weather gone!” another said. “Thank you for sharing. Hope you will have a peaceful Christmas with your family x.”

“WHEN DID THOSE BABIES GROW UP SO FAST 😭😭😭😭😭,” someone else lamented, and it’s really so true. Compared to last year’s Christmas card, the royal kids look so much older!

Seeing the royal Christmas cards every December is our favorite holiday tradition, and this year is no exception. We can’t get over the low-key vibe in this photo, and it’s definitely an inspiration for our own family Christmas celebration. It’s cute, coordinated, and casual, and we love it!
