Prince William kept three-year-old promise to Kate Middleton with family’s Christmas photo


Kate Middleton and Prince William posed with George, Charlotte and Louis for their annual Christmas card photo – shot somewhere that means a lot to the Duchess of Cambridge and her family

The Cambridges delighted royal fans with their 2021 family Christmas card, sharing an unseen snap from a sunny family holiday.

The photo shows Kate, William, George, Charlotte and Louis sitting outside on the rocks during a trip in Jordan earlier this year.

They are all smiling broadly at the camera, with Kate and William placing their hands on each others legs in a rare public display of affection.

As well as being an adorable family memory, it also proves Prince William kept a promise he made to his wife back in 2018.

Their choice of snap is a nod to Kate’s family, the Middletons, as it was taken in Jordan, which they called home for three years when Michael worked in the region as a British Airways pilot.

The family loved their time there, and have previously shared photos from the period in the 80s.

In 2018 William visited Jordan as part of the five-day tour of the Middle East, but Kate had to miss the trip as she was on maternity leave having just welcomed Prince Louis.

He said Kate was “very upset” to miss the visit as she was keen to return to the area.

So during his visit to a spectacular archaeological site at Jerash, which Kate visited during her time in the country, he did something very sweet for her.

While they were living in the country in the 1980s, the family visited the ruins of a first century Roman city and posed for a cute family photo.

It shows Kate with her dad Michael and little sister Pippa sitting on a wall overlooking the incredible site.

But as Kate wasn’t there to recreate the special moment herself, Wills decided to do it for her.

Wearing beige trousers and a blue blazer, he stood and smiled in front of the historic site in the scorching temperatures.

But it wasn’t quite good enough for Wills, and he smiled made a promise. He said: “Need to come back with the family for this shot”.

And this year it looks like he kept that promise, taking Kate and their children back to the area.

While they didn’t release a recreated photo, the Cambridges’ Christmas card snap captures the country perfectly.

The shot, which has a sun-kissed backdrop, sees a beaming Kate and William place a tender hand on each other’s knees while George and Charlotte sit either side of their parents. Louis sits cross-legged in front of his mum.

Dressed casually, Kate wears a flowing khaki dress, William looks relaxed in shorts, George opts for a camouflage top, Charlotte dons a blue checked dress while Louis looks cute in a striped polo top.

In a tweet Kensington Palace said: “Delighted to share a new image of the family, which features on this year’s Christmas card.”
