Before the British Royal Family gets around to celebrating the marriage of Prince William to his fiancee Kate Middleton next Spring, they’ve got a little matter of Xmas to celebrate beforehand. Prince Charles and his wife Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall have released their official Xmas Card for 2010 as a way to say Happy Holidays to all their loyal subjects:
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, took to the slopes to take photos for this year’s royal Christmas card, which depicts the beaming couple atop a snowy mountainside in a winter wonderland. An annual tradition, the Prince of Wales, 62, has often included Princes William and Harry in previous years’ photos. But for this Christmas, it’s all about the future king and his Mrs., who are beaming and bundled up from head to toe.
My guess is that now that Prince William is about to become a married man and Prince Harry is a rugged military man, Charles and Camilla decided that their Xmas card need only depict the two of them together in a loving embrace. I can’t help but be fascinated by the Royal Family, even more so now with the upcoming wedding of Prince William to Kate. While I’ve never been too much of a Prince Charles fan, I can’t help but be charmed by him these days … after all, he will be the next King of England. I suppose the next time Charles and Camilla pose for an official photo, it’ll be for his son’s Royal Wedding in April. But, for now, it’s Xmas greetings all around.
