The Cambridges are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis entertaining the public on the regular.

Yes, from Princess Charlotte’s signature sass and Prince George’s surprising nickname to Prince Louis’ love of interrupting zoom calls, these miniature royals never fail to make viral news.

This past year, it has been the Duchess of Cambridge and her 'aura of perfection' that has made the most headlines, from her multiple public appearances to her candid words about motherhood.

This week however, it was the whole Cambridge family that got the world talking as they posted their official Christmas photograph.

The photo in question is said to have been taken privately during a family holiday to Jordan earlier this year, and the internet certainly seems to approve.

'Delighted to share a new image of the family, which features on this year's Christmas card,' the Cambridge family captioned the snap.

This holiday photograph differs to their usual Christmas photograph set up, with last year's offering featuring serious autumnal vibes, from the woodpile and haystack to the Christmas jumpers.

Last year's big reveal took place on 16 December so it seems the Duke and Duchess have uploaded their 2021 photograph early.

Well, this is exciting.
