If the frantic rush to the end to the year is making you a little frazzled, we (or more accurately, the royals) have got just what you need. In a serendipitous surprise, Duchess Catherine and Prince William released an adorable picture of their family-of-five dressed in jeans and sitting on a tree trunk outside their country home in Norfolk.

The three youngsters, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3 and Prince Louis, 7 months, are seen cuddling up to their parents and looking utterly charming.
Would it be normal if we printed this out and stuck it on our fridge? We can’t stop looking! While the picture appears to have been taken at least a month ago during the British Autumn, seeing just how much little Prince Louis has grown up is making us rather misty eyed – time flies!

When it comes to Christmas, the royals don’t do things by halves. Amongst the black-tie dinners, decadent breakfasts and church services galore, it’s a wonder the royals even have time to open presents. And while many of the adult European royals might look at the festive season as a rather exhausting occasion, we can’t forget the little ones who undoubtedly see Christmas as a magical time full of novelty gifts, treats-a-plenty and running amok with their fellow young relatives.
From adorable Christmas photos to the unexpected time presents are actually opened, we round up how the young European royal tots are celebrating the festive season this year.
