Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall's card will bring back fun memories for royals fans! It features a lovely image of them riding in a classic car during their trip to Cuba in March. The pair drove the MG to one of their engagements there. Their trip marked the first time any members of the Royal Family had visited the communist country.

The Spanish royal family's Christmas card was very casual last year, featuring King Felipe Vi, Queen Letizia, Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia on a hike.

This year's sees the family on a balcony, greeting well-wishers on a trip to the Asturias, with the two royal daughters in matching beige trenchcoats, while their mother looks fabulous in a similar navy blue one!
