The royals aren’t messing around this year with these Christmas cards, and there are so many layers of meaning to glean from each one (because, they’re the royals, and of course they’ve thought about every single detail). Exhibit A: Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles’s Christmas card, which features a precious nod to little Prince Louis.

It appears the photo was taken at the same time as now-7-month-old Louis’s christening, judging by the outfits. Both the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are wearing identical clothing to that day (see photo below), so it’s safe to say that’s when this sweet shot was captured.

It’s a nice way of honoring their youngest grandchild, Prince Louis, during his birth year, while also taking advantage of their neat outfits and formal attire, just as we’d do at our cousin’s wedding or niece’s bat mitzvah (sorry, not sorry, Kristina, but this one’s going to be our prof pic).

Royals (and their opportune photo shoots), they’re just like us!
