Prince William and the Princess of Wales have delighted fans by releasing a previously unseen photograph of their children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, as part of a 2023 year-end video recap. The charming photo, captured during a Father’s Day photoshoot in June, features a beaming Prince William, 41, embracing George, 10, Charlotte, 8, and Louis, 5, all coordinated in blue.
The couple’s official social media accounts conveyed gratitude, stating, “Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our year.” The video montage also showcased individual birthday portraits of the children taken throughout the year.
In another heartwarming image, the young royals are seen delivering letters to children in need during Princess Kate’s third annual Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey earlier this month.
The video included a glimpse of Prince George and Princess Charlotte attending King Charles III’s official coronation ceremony in May, dressed in formal attire alongside their father.
Highlights of the montage featured Prince William and the Princess of Wales in various engagements. One notable photo showed Prince William playing basketball with soccer star Tyrone Mings in an event to raise homelessness awareness. The Princess of Wales was also captured participating in a spin class during a visit to Wales and walking with radio host Roman Kemp for her early childhood-focused Shaping Up campaign.
The video montage captured tender moments between the royal couple, known for their rare public displays of affection. Memorable appearances included their walk in formal attire at the wedding of Crown Prince Hussein and Princess Rajwa Al Hussein of Jordan, and their stunning presence at the 2023 BAFTA Awards.
Additionally, the recap included images from Princess Kate’s Mother’s Day photoshoot and the family’s Christmas portraits. Their festive message on social media read, “Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas, from our family to yours!” One Christmas portrait, however, made headlines due to an apparent Photoshop error involving Prince Louis’ finger, causing a slight embarrassment for the royals.
The family celebrated Christmas in matching outfits and attended church services together on December 25.
