When it rains (royal appearances), it pours. 

Just yesterday, Kate Middleton, 41, and Prince William, 41, revealed a never-before-seen look at this year’s Christmas carol concert, where their three kids, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, made a surprise appearance.

And now, the Prince and Princess of Wales have unveiled their 2023 Christmas card photo featuring the entire fam—and it’s giving major old school vibes.

Today, the royal couple posted the black and white photo on their official Instagram account and captioned it, “Our family Christmas card for 2023,” with a Christmas tree emoji and a heart emoji. Unlike some past family photos that were taken by the princess herself, this year’s pic was taken by photographer Josh Shinner.

Not only is the black and white giving the picture a throwback feel, but everything from their coordinating outfits, to their pose, to the background is screaming ‘90s mall photo shoot (in the absolute best way possible).

It’s clear the Wales children are growing up so fast (what with Prince George getting taller by the minute and Princess Charlotte looking more like her mother every day). In the pic, Charlotte is showing off her very long locks and Princess Catherine is channeling Farrah Fawcett with her own hair (only adding to the old school vibes).

But as if this Christmas photo weren’t enough, King Charles, 75, and Queen Camilla, 76, also released their holiday card.

They captioned an Instagram pic of the card, “This year’s official Christmas card features a photograph of The King and Queen taken in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace on Coronation Day by Hugo Burnand.”

Now how do we get on the mailing list to receive one of these cards for ourselves?
