Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose wedding photograph for the traditional royal Christmas card

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose a newly released photo from their royal wedding for their card.

Five-year-old Prince George and three-year-old Princess Charlotte stand between their parents - and look like they've been caught in the middle of a game - while Prince Louis sits contently in Kate's arms.

Thanks to Kensington Palace, fans got a peek at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Christmas card this year, which features an as-yet-unseen photo of the pair's wedding day.

The Duke of Sussex is wearing a black tux, while Meghan wears her second gown by Stella McCartney. The three-year-old princess looks sweet as can be in a blue sweater and denim skirt, while George - in an energetic stance! - wears grey jeans, a green sweater and rubber boots.

The couple, who are expecting their first child in spring 2019, will soon be moving to Frogmore Cottage, a 10-bedroom grade II listed house in the grounds of Frogmore House in coming months.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family", the palace penned on Instagram.

Kensington Royal posted the image to their social media accounts, which was closely followed by an arty shot of newlyweds Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle, 37.

Prince Charles and Camilla's photo is of them sitting on a park bench at Clarence House during summer.

Christmas is right around the corner, which means the British Royal Family is preparing to spend their holiday at Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

This is Prince Louis' first ever Christmas card after the tot arrived in April, and it's fair to say he steals the show, while cheeky Prince George climbs onto his dad's back behind.

What do you think of Kate and Will's Christmas card?
