The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her thrifty sense of style – and it seems she is passing the lesson onto her children.

Princess Charlotte, three, appears in the Cambridges’ new Christmas card wearing a navy blue cardigan that belonged to her five-year-old brother Prince George.

The £48 knitted number by royal favourite Fina Ejerique was seen on George in the family portrait released to celebrate his grandmother the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016.

The Cambridge photo shows the Duchess of Cambridge cradling baby Louis – who is now almost eight months old – as she rests against a tree trunk in woodland at their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk with the Duke of Cambridge.

Three-year-old Charlotte stands on the trunk with her arms around her parents’ shoulders, while five-year-old George playfully holds on to his father as he stands one-legged in wellies on the trunk.

It was released on Friday along with a photo of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex taken at Windsor on their wedding night.

The black and white snap shows the newlyweds standing hand-in-hand as fireworks erupt in the grounds of Frogmore House, a 17th century royal residence in Windsor near Frogmore Cottage, where they will live from early next year.

Harry and Meghan were photographed by Chris Allerton on May 19, while William and Kate chose an autumn picture taken by Matt Porteous.

A third card shows the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall on a bench in their Clarence House garden gazing at each other.

In Charles and Camilla’s card, the duchess is wearing a cream and crape dress by Fiona Clare in the image, the same outfit she wore for the prince’s official 70th birthday pictures which featured the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The photograph was taken by Hugo Burnand, who is used to working with members of the Royal Family as he took the wedding pictures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s nuptials in 2011 and Charles and Camilla’s big day in 2005.
