How sweet? On Friday, Dec. 14, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, released their annual Christmas card — and it’s nothing short of adorable! The snap of the happily married couple was taken in the garden of Clarence House this summer. The card, which was photographed sitting in a Christmas tree, says “Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year.”
In the snap, Charles, 70, is wearing a navy blue pin-striped suit with black shoes and looks dapper as ever. Camilla, 71, is sporting an ivory long sleeve dress with a pearl necklace and matching pair of nude pumps. They both look so elegant and polished!
Charles and Camilla said “I do” back in 2005, eight years after his ex-wife Princess Diana’s death. In a previous interview, Harry gushed over his stepmother. “She’s a wonderful woman and she’s made our father very, very happy, which is the most important thing. [My brother, Prince William] and I love her to bits. To be honest with you, she’s always been very close to me and William… She’s not the wicked stepmother,” he once told the BBC. How sweet!
Camilla is also a mother to two adult children from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles. Her son, Tom Parker Bowles, now 43, was born in 1974 and her daughter, Laura Lopes, now 40, joined the family in 1978. Camilla and Andrew divorced after more than 20 years of marriage in 1995. Charles and Camilla chose to pose without their kids and grandkids in their Christmas card, although we think that would’ve been the ultimate treat. Maybe next year?
On the same day Charles and Camilla revealed their 2018 Christmas card, William and his wife, Kate Middleton, also released their family holiday card featuring their three young children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 8 months. Similarly, Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, shared a holiday card with a never-before-seen snap from their wedding. They’re all framers, if you ask us!
