It's a blue Christmas for the Cambridge family! The British royals looked picture perfect in their last Christmas card as a family-of-four. Prince William and Kate, who is currently expecting her third child, coordinated in blue ensembles with their young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte for the photo session taken at Kensington Palace. The picture appears to have been taken around the time of Prince George's birthday in July. The royal tots sweetly posed in front of their proud parents for the lovely portrait.

The royal court released the card and video with a message that read: "Crown Princess Couple, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar send a Christmas greeting from Haga Castle. Merry Christmas!"

The Jordanian royal family will be celebrating the New Year in style as the heir to the throne Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II starts 2018 as a Commissioned Officer. His Royal Highness graduated earlier this year at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst's Sovereign's Parade — and to celebrate the special occasion, the family has broken tradition.
The Hashmite New Year card, which was sent to HOLA!'s sister brand HELLO!, shows three Royals as Military Academy of Sandhurst graduates: the late King Hussein bin Talal (1952), the actual King Abdullah II (1981) and the Crown Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II (2017). It is the first time in years that the New Year's card does not show the royal family, with Queen Rania and her other daughters and son.
King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia and their daughters Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía looked holiday ready in their 2017 Christmas card. "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018," the holiday message read in English and Spanish along with the four royals' handwritten signatures signed below.
The beautiful portrait was taken in October during Spain's National Day (12 October) celebrations in Madrid. At the time, the royal family showed a united front despite political turmoil in the country. The festivities also included a special memory for the victims of the Barcelona and Cambrils attacks.
