I doubt this will get much attention at all since it’s Christmas and since my last few articles haven’t gotten much attention, but for those who don’t celebrate Christmas of for those who want something to look at during any downtime during Christmas celebrations, here’s a quick wrap up of various royals’ Christmas cards and photos, and various royals at Christmas-related events recently.
Here’s just a quick refresher of the Christmas photo from the Swedish Crown Princess Family featuring Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle, and Prince Oscar out for a hike which I previously covered here.
I’m still so bummed that the Cambridge clan denied us a Christmas photo/card (Harry didn’t release one either even though he did last year, also a bummer), but Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall released their Christmas card. The photo chosen for their card was taken during their tour of Croatia where they met local performers wearing traditional dress in Tvrda, the old town of the city of Osijek.
This isn’t Christmas related, but Clarence House recently released a photo of The Queen and Prince Charles taken in May 2016 by Nick Knight in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle, prior to the final night of The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations at the Royal Windsor Horse Pageant. The photo was released to mark the end of the year of celebrations for The Queen’s 90th birthday. It’s quite a lovely photo.
