With Christmas just a few days away, some of the European royals joined traditional celebrations bringing the young Princes and Princesses to get in the Christmas mood with the citizens.

In Belgium, practically all the royal members attended a Christmas carol concert at the Palace and that included all the grandchildren of the King and Queen of Belgium, with the stellar appearance of Princesses Elisabeth, Laetitia, Louise and the recently born Prince Emmanuel and twins Princes Nicolas and Aymeric. The teenager Princes Amedeo, Maria Laura, Joachim and Luisa, children of Princess Maria Astrid were also present. Hello Magazine and Belga have lovely pictures of the event.

The Spanish princely couple Felipe and Letizia also released their Christmas card for this year, featuring a grown up Princess Leonor in front of their chimney with the Christmas decorations (pictured). They were also reportedly doing some Christmas shopping yesterday in a centric shopping mall of Madrid, Hipercor Pozuelo.

The Nowegian royals also posed for the traditional Christmas photoshoot with Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Sverre Magnus and Marius, children of Haakon and Mette Marit and with Maud Angelica and Leah Isadora, daughter of Princess Martha-Louise with writer Ari Behn, in the traditional bunads. Ari was not in this year’s photoshoot. Seher has some photos and a video, which you can see here. It also shows pictures from last year’s photoshoots and BA has a photogallery.
