Why shouldn’t Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall be smiling?

It’s been a year filled with happy news: the Queen’s Jubilee, a baby on the way for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, even Prince Harry was revealed as a popular party guy – yet responsible enough to serve his country proudly.

And so, the couple’s official Christmas card shows the two of them looking their merriest in a shot taken by photographer Danny Martindale while the royals were on board the Spirit of Chartwell during the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on June 3, reports the Telegraph.

As for their outfits, Charles is sporting his Royal Navy admiral’s ceremonial day dress uniform, while Camilla is donning an Anna Valentine coat and dress with a hat by Philip Treacy.

Not seen in the photo, although also in attendance at the ceremony: the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

And the message inside? “Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year.”

Back at you, folks!
