If you haven’t sent out your family holiday cards yet, no need to stress – you still have time to get those cards in the mail. But if you are looking for some inspiration, might we suggest checking out William, Kate and their crew’s card as well as Harry and Meghan’s because both Royal families have released their holiday cards and they are an absolute holiday delight.

First up, the adorable Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and 7-month-old Prince Louis and their mom and dad — Kate and William. First, please just pause to look at little Louis holding onto his mom’s arm and his adorable little smile. Stop with all the cuteness! We simply can’t take it.

As always, George and Charlotte are absolutely precious. The overall feel of the card is casual and it really is the perfect picture for a family holiday card. Also, this card is so sweet and personal that it almost makes us forget that this family contains two future kings.

We have to wonder if Kate had a mom moment where she had to remind her kids a million times to smile and behind clenched teeth, told little George to put his leg down. Come on, we all know how stressful getting the perfect family picture can be for mom. If she did break a sweat, we can’t tell.

The Royal family’s card from 2017 was very formal so it’s nice to see the casual vibe this year.

Next up, newlyweds Harry and Meghan, who turned a never-before-seen wedding photo into their first holiday card. The gorgeous picture was snapped at their wedding reception at Frogmore House in Windsor, England and shows the couple embracing as they watch the fireworks display together. So beautiful.

This swoon-worthy picture is the perfect way to capture the whirlwind year this lovely couple has had. From their engagement to their fairytale wedding to the news that their family will be growing by one—this stunning card is perfection.

While the two cards have very different vibes, it’s clear that both Royal families nailed their holiday mailings.
