    The Cambridges are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, and in the aftermath of the Sussex family’s resignation, they are making non-stop headline news.

    Their popularity has only surged during the coronavirus outbreak, with Kate and Wills sharing sneak peeks of their royal offices to Instagram, releasing sweet videos of their children and surprising NHS workers, school teachers and young students with video phone calls to boost morale and give thanks.

    Yes, all five of the Cambridges have been all over social media, something that they have been praised for, with the public approving of the family’ relatable side.

    This week, they were at it again, but it was the Cambridge family’s official Christmas photograph that made headlines, as the Duke and Duchess released the gorgeous snap to their Instagram account.

    The photograph sees the family of five laughing together on a haystack in front of a log pile, captioned: ‘The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new image of their family, which features on their Christmas card this year🎄’

    The photograph certainly proved to be popular, raking in 1.5 million likes in under a day. And while commenters were quick to point out Princess Charlotte’s likeness to the Queen, fans also came out in force to praise one relatable detail.

    On closer inspection Kate, Charlotte and Louis can all be seen to have mud on their trousers, something eagle-eyed fans were delighted by, showing the Cambridges’ relatable side.

    ‘Kate seems to have muddy knees as well. Great photo. Lovely family,’ one fan commented, while another posted: ‘Matching dirt marks on the leg-wear, obviously been having a lark before this was taken.’

    Royals – they’re just like us!

    Happy Christmas to the Cambridges!
