Happy Christmas! Prince Charles and Camilla send seasonal greetings

19 DECEMBER 2013 Their joie de vivre is one of Prince Charles and Camilla’s most endearing and infectious qualities – and it has been perfectly captured in an image chosen for the couple's official Christmas card.

Prince Charles and Camilla: How love finally triumphed

The photograph, taken by Stephen Lock in June, shows Charles and Camilla sharing a joke while attending Royal Ascot.


The smiling Duchess is dressed in an elegant Anna Valentine pansy print chiffon dress with a peppermint green silk coat, and holding a silk clutch bag, by the same designer.

Her husband, pictured as he turns to face Camilla, looks smart in an Anderson and Sheppard morning coat, a shirt by Turnbull and Asser and a top hat by Lock & Co.


Printed on the cover of each Christmas card is the Prince's feathers and the Duchess' official cipher. Inside the card, opposite the photograph, is written the message, "Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year".
