Color coordination was a serious consideration in this professional shot, sent by Di and Charles.


Whoa, hats off (or on) to a fancy-pants royal Christmas card done right. Also, proof that Princes William and Harry can totally rock a double-breasted blazer.

Charles and Camilla are #couplegoals here.


Remember when Charlotte kicked off her shoe and no one noticed?

Kudos to Chris Jackson for snapping this pre-Prince Louis pic.
