British Royal Family’s Merriest Holiday Cards Through the Years

The British royal family has a longstanding tradition at the end of each year of sending out Christmas cards to royal families, heads of state, and their staff every December.

The Queen carried on the practice established by Queen Elizabeth’s predecessors.  The royal couples Charles-Diana, Charles-Camilla, William-Kate, and Harry-Meghan, released greeting cards by gathering images taken with their families.

Currently, greeting cards for King Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry are published separately.
