The Prince of Wales and his family posed for a portrait taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson ahead of his 70th birthday on Wednesday November 14th. The beautiful photos were taken at Clarence House in September and show little Prince Louis, Prince George and Princess Charlotte as well as Prince William and Prince Harry and their spouses Duchess Kate Middleton and Duchess Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Cornwall is also featured in the photograph sitting next to little Charlotte.
The fun family photos show a glimpse into the more casual and relaxed royals than is often seen in public. In fact, one photo captures the entire family in uproarious laughter with big smiles.
The photos are a bit more playful and less formal than Prince Louis’ christening photos which were more traditional.
For the photos, the duchesses each showed off their individual style with Duchess Catherine opting for a polka dot blue midi dress by Alessandra Rich. The style has been popular with other celebrities and a close friend of Meghan’s, Abigail Spencer, even wore the exact same dress to the royal wedding.
The pleated polka dot dress with a white collar is currently sold out but a similar style is available HERE.
