One Thing You Might've Missed In Prince William, Kate Middleton's Christmas Card

The photo has a sweet tie to the Duchess of Cambridge's childhood years in Jordan.

Prince William and Kate Middleton released their family Christmas card last week, and its location has a sweet tie to the Duchess of Cambridge’s childhood.

The holiday photo, which shows a very relaxed side of the royal family — and Prince George in a camo T-shirt! — was taken earlier this year in Jordan, according to a release from Kensington Palace.

George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, all look very grown up in the sweet photograph.

Though the photo is a bit of a departure from last year’s holiday card location ― at the family’s Anmer Hall house in Norfolk ― it’s not an unfamiliar one for Kate.

According to the Duchess of Cambridge’s biography page on the royal family’s website, Kate’s family lived in Amman, Jordan, from May 1984 to September 1986, when her father worked as a manager for British Airways.

The duchess even attended a nursery school in Amman during the Middletons’ two and a half years in the country.

Clarence House shared a photo from the family’s time in Jordan that shows Kate, her sister, Pippa, and their father, Michael, in the city of Jerash.

Prince William paid tribute to his wife’s time in Jordan in 2018 when he stopped by Jerash.

He took a photo in the same place where the Middleton family had posed for their picture.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, also shared their pandemic-appropriate holiday card last week.

It features a photo taken by royal photographer Sam Hussein of the royal couple wearing masks at Royal Ascot earlier this year.
