All eyes are on cheerful little Prince Louis in a brand new photo, which is reportedly the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s family Christmas card.

The family hasn't officially released the photo, but a proud recipient of a card shared a photo of the image online, which has been widely reposted by fan accounts. The shared photo includes the image's paper frame, which reads, "2020".

The image shows Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, sat with their children on bales of hay in front of stacked firewood. It is assumed that the photo was taken at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

Prince George, 7, and Princess Charlotte, 5, are both happily smiling for the photo, while their younger brother, Prince Louis, 2, is positively beaming.

The Cambridges' family panto

The leaked image hit social media on the same weekend that the family made their first public engagement as a five this year.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis joined their parents to walk down their first red carpet as a family, before they watched a performance of the Pantoland pantomime at The London Palladium. The show was staged to thank key workers and their families for their efforts throughout the pandemic.

The children could be seen sitting in their box seats in the theatre, animatedly reacting to the lively show.

Swedish royal Christmas card

Swedish royals Prince Carl Philip, Duke of Varmland, and Princess Sofia, Duchess of Varmland, have officially shared a family photo to celebrate the festivities.

The couple recently announced that they are expecting their third child.

"We are happy and excited, and are looking forward to welcoming our third child, a sibling for Prince Alexander and Prince Gabriel, and a new addition to our family," the couple said in a statement. The newborn is expected to arrive "at the end of March or the beginning of April 2021".

Last year, Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf eliminated HRH titles for his grandchildren, with the exception of heir apparent Crown Princess Victoria's children.

"The purpose of these changes is to establish which members of The Royal Family may be expected to perform official duties incumbent on the Head of State or related to the function of the Head of State," a palace statement read.
