Today we have a look at the new Cambridge family photo Kensington Palace released.
The picture was taken in the autumn at Anmer Hall, the family’s country home. It really is a terrific photo. Everyone looks relaxed and comfortable as Kate and William lean against a tree, while Charlotte and George stand on it, and the Duchess has Prince Louis in her arms. In an Instagram post, the photographer said, “It was an honour to be asked to photograph The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family at Anmer Hall. Capturing the fun and relaxed moments between such a wonderful family was a true privilege.”
If you recognize the photographer’s name, it is probably because of the other family photos he has shot, including this classic christening picture of Kate and Prince Louis.
As well as Prince George’s third and fifth birthday photos.
There is definitely some repeating of pieces in the picture, including the cardigan sweater we see Charlotte wearing. It’s made multiple appearances in official photos.
Prince George looks like he is probably delighted to be in a pair of jeans.
I think perhaps the Duchess will have him wearing full-length trousers going forward and not the shorts he usually wears in formal settings. For details on what the children are wearing in the photo, pop over to What Kate’s Kids Wore for today’s post.
It was truly a cornucopia of Christmas card pictures today. Here is the Christmas card the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are sending this year.
The Telegraph reports the Duchess is wearing “a cream and crepe dress by Fiona Clare in the image, the same outfit she wore for the Prince’s official 70th birthday pictures which featured the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.” Below, one of the 70th birthday photos.
Clarence House released the images this morning.
Now to what Kate wore in the new photo, starting with her FJällräven sweater. The piece was first noted at an October engagement at a nature park.
It is the Fjällräven Övik Re-Wool Style style, so called because it is a blend of recycled wool and polyamide. It is a classic design with ribbed cuffs and collar, in a color called frost green. The sweater now appears to be sold out.
Beneath the sweater, the Duchess wore a gingham check shirt in what looks like a light blue and white check. Here is a better view of the collar.
The Duchess wore her Asprey earrings.
Here is a closer look at the Oak Leaf Earrings, part of the jeweler’s ‘Woodland’ collection.
We don’t know what brand of jeans Kate is wearing, and I would be surprised if we are able to discern who made them as there’s very little visible detail in the new picture.
We will see you next week!
