The Prince and Princess of Wales have released their annual Christmas card, which features a photo of the family on a walk in the Norfolk countryside.
The picture, taken by trusted royal photographer Matt Porteous, shows Kate and William taking a stroll with children George, Louis, and Charlotte.
It marks a change from previous years, with the former Ms Middleton swapping her usual dress for a casual pair of jeans and trainers.
We’re loving the pared-back look, as we rarely see the royals in denim, so this behind the scenes snap taken at Sandringham offers a sneak peek into their everyday lives and wardrobes.
Kate’s ‘jeans and a nice top’ ensemble is also super versatile, meaning you can steal her style with similar pieces that are wearable year-round.
The £225 broderie anglaise blouse she’s sporting in the card is the Mabel Shirt By M.I.H. Jeans, which she also wore in May 2019 for a visit to the Back to Nature Garden.
With puff sleeves and a scallop trim on the collar, it also made an appearance when the Princess held a Zoom call for Volunteers Week in 2020 – but it’s now unfortunately sold out.
Thankfully, though, there are plenty of similar options on the UK high street.

The Princess of Wales paired her delicately-patterned blouse with a pair of deep blue skinny jeans.
Although slimmer styles have gone out of favour in recent years, Kate clearly knows what works best for her shape. A mid-rise waist in a skinny cut helps offset an oversized or statement top half and add balance to the outfit.
Additionally, a dark shade of denim looks great against white or wintry pastel shades.

To finish off the ensemble, the royal dressed down in a pair of Superga trainers.
These simple pumps are a favourite of Kate’s, and she’s got them in a variety of colours to mix and match while on the go.
Celebrities including Emily Ratajkowski, Ariana Grande, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas have also been spotted in Superga, suggesting they’re a great choice for when you want to combine comfort with off-duty style.
