The Royal Family’s many wonderful Christmas cards

Will and Kate

The British Royal Family has been sending out holiday cards for decades, complete with festive family portraits. We’ve rounded up images from the past 75 years, showing how the Royal Family has grown and changed, and how they chose to share their lives with their many subjects.

The cards were often a great way to show private or personal moments, and to showcase a more lighthearted side of the Royals. Whether it’s a young Prince Harry making a face, or Queen Elizabeth et al. gathered around a stationary speedboat, the images have certainly offered a unique insight into the family’s life.
