Obviously, they’re brothers, so this is not a groundbreaking revelation, but the photo did make us do a double take. Prince William and Kate Middleton posted the shot, which of course includes a darling Princess Charlotte too, to Instagram. (We’re obsessed with her boots!) The family is dressed casually, in jeans and sweaters, presumably at their country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk. Prince Louis is hamming it up in the middle, with a fantastically big smile and hair that has lightened up and looks so much like his big brother’s.
“The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new image of their family, which features on their Christmas card this year🎄,” the caption reads.
These kids are growing up so fast! It seems like just yesterday that Middleton and Prince William were standing outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, introducing the world to their youngest son, and now he’s a full-on toddler. Along with his big brother, Prince George, Prince Louis also bears a striking resemblance to his maternal grandfather, Michael Middleton, right down to his fantastic eyebrows.
Along with sharing their Christmas card with the world, the Cambridges also got into the holiday spirit last week with a red-carpet appearance (the kids’ first!) at a special performance of The National Lottery’s Pantoland at The Palladium to honor front frontline pandemic workers.
“The Duke and Duchess and their family attended a special pantomime performance of The National Lottery’s Pantoland at The Palladium, which was held to thank key workers and their families for their phenomenal efforts this year,” they wrote on Instagram about the event. “Before the performance, The Duke delivered a short speech to thank those across the country for the sacrifices they have made to keep the country operating and to support their communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”
