Prince George and his sister Princess Charlotte have appeared in their first Christmas portrait together with their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace. The Cambridges also announced the nursery Prince George will be attending.
The new picture shows the family in the garden at Kensington Palace and was taken in late October by photographer Chris Jelf. Mr Jelf said: “I thoroughly enjoyed photographing a very lovely family, although you have to be sharp as you don’t have long when there are two young children involved!
“I hope everyone enjoys this photo and I am honoured that the duke and duchess have decided to share it with the public.”
Kensington Palace said that the royal couple were “very much looking forward to their first Christmas as a family of four” and “hugely appreciative of all the warm messages they have received about their family this year”.
Two-year-old Prince George will go to the £33-a-day Westacre Montessori School Nursery in Norfolk from January. A nursery spokesman said: “We are looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery.” The nursery, near King’s Lynn, is close to the Duke and Duchess’ home, Anmer Hall.
