This is Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's Christmas card for 1965.
This is a picture of the one received by the Duke of Windsor.
You can tell it was sent to a family member because it's signed "Lilibet" instead of "Elizabeth R"

Smile Christmas Cards

Does anybody have any photos of the royals' Christmas Cards? Some nice, clear ones. I'd like to see them but they only ones I can find are blurry.

Thanks,
Ani

It should be coming out sometime this week.

It is always released a few days before Christmas Eve. I expect by Tuesday or Wednesday we should get a glimpse of it.

Any guesses on what it might be? In previous years (well, since having grandchildren) the King and Queen always posed with their grandchildren. Last year thy posed at Zarzuela by themselves however.

Perhaps with the addition of Letizia this year we'll see a new family picture?
