Greetings from the Royals
Perhaps your Christmas cards from the House of Windsor are still stuck at the post office. But those who have already received theirs report that Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Fergie have underlined their confounding, continuing partnership with a joint family holiday greeting. The card, which features the York rose on the front and, inside, a photo of Princesses Beatrice, 11, and Eugenie, 9, comes with a message from “all of us.” Prince Charles, meanwhile, has chosen a relaxed shot of him and his sons said to have been taken by a police bodyguard during an interlude in a polo match in the English countryside. The photo has Charles (in jodhpurs, a blue-checked shirt and tan riding boots) with his arms draped over the shoulders of his grinning sons, William, 17, and Harry, 15. Taken on a bright summer’s day, it shows Wills apparently squinting because of the sunshine in his eyes — while Harry looks directly into the lens.
