The adorable photos include Prince William, Kate Middleton, 5-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, and, for his Christmas card debut, 8-month-old Prince Louis.
According to PEOPLE, the portrait was taken sometime in the late summer. They also noted that this is easily the royal family’s most casual portrait yet!
