Deck the halls! Duchess Kate‘s style is gorgeous every day of the year but, on Christmas, the mom of three always seems to step her royal fashion up a notch. Unlike Duchess Meghan, who accompanied Prince Harry to Christmas church service before they married, Kate first joined the royal family’s holiday festivities in December 2011, eight months after she tied the knot with Prince William in April of that year.
The next holiday season, Kate and William chose to spend December 25 with the Middletons. But since then, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been photographed walking with Queen Elizabeth and the royal family to church on the monarch’s famed Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England nearly every year — and Kate’s picture-perfect Christmas Day outfits just keep getting better and better!
Our favorite thing about Kate and William around the holidays is that we get to see the look of joy on the faces of their children — Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1. The trio of kids have slowly been added to the mix over the years and, as of last year, George and Charlotte were joined by Louis and the family commemorated the special day as a family of five for the first time ever.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family,” read the royal duo’s Instagram caption their 2018 Christmas card. “The photograph, taken by Matt Porteous, shows The Duke and Duchess with their three children at Anmer Hall. This photograph features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year.”
In the denim-filled snapshot, the royal couple are both wearing jeans — with Kate in a brown sweater and William in a plaid shirt. As for the little ones, George has a pair of casual slacks paired with rain boots and a green sweater, Charlotte is donning a navy blue sweater and a skirt while Louis is in a light blue sweater with a collared shirt underneath. Cozy!
We can’t wait to see what Kate decides to wear this year! No matter what, we’ll certainly be impressed.
