The Prince and Princess of Wales have been spotted getting in the Christmas spirit while searching for a festive fir in Windsor Great Park with their two eldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Kate and William, both 41, were visiting the Christmas Tree Shop in Berkshire when they were noticed by a royal fan who shared a photograph to Facebook of the Royal Family members.
In the snap, which has since been deleted, William chats to a man thought to be a staff member, while George, ten, and Charlotte, eight, check out the trees on offer.
Kate, dressed in grey jeans, brown boots and a matching jacket, appears to walk behind her children while holding a pair of gloves in her one hand.
Her hair is left loose, similar to Charlotte’s, who sports festive red trousers, brown wellingtons and a blue padded jacket, similar to the one worn by her brother.

William, meanwhile, wears a green jacket, matching wellington boots and blue jeans, with a hat. Kate and William’s youngest son Prince Louis, five, didn’t appear to be in the photograph.
The Prince and Princess of Wales and their children live at Adelaide Cottage near Windsor Castle, in Windsor Home Park.
It’s unclear when exactly the family visited the Christmas Tree Shop at Windsor Great Park, but the image was shared on Sunday.
The shop runs until December 18, while stocks last, and is open weekdays from 11am to 7pm and weekends from 9am to 5pm.
The website says: ‘Visit the Christmas Tree Shop at Windsor Great Park and our forestry team will help you choose from a selection of cut trees ranging from 3-4 feet through to 15-16 feet.
‘Grown sustainably in Britain, with many coming from the Windsor Estate, you can choose from a traditional Norway Spruce, Nordmann Fir or (new this year) the vibrant and traditional Blue Spruce.
‘For those who would like to grow your trees on, we also offer potted trees of Norway Spruce and Nordmann Fir ranging from 2-2.5 feet through to 4-5 feet.
‘And, if it is just something for your table, choose from one of our firm favourites, a miniature potted tree.’
The Princess of Wales will again host her Christmas carol service, where midwives and nursery teachers will be among the guests in celebration of those supporting young children and families
This festive season, the Princess of Wales will again host her Christmas carol service, where midwives and nursery teachers will be among the guests in celebration of those supporting young children and families.
Kate’s now traditional festive event will be attended by members of the Royal Family, with the King and Queen likely to join the congregation, like last year, alongside the princess’s husband William and her eldest two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
In a sweet photo announcing the news, the Princess is shown trimming a Christmas tree in a £179 Fair Isle jumper from Holland Cooper, which she first wore while reading a bedtime story on CBeebies last year.
Singers Beverley Knight and Adam Lambert, multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, performer Freya Ridings and singer-songwriter James Bay will be among the entertainers at the Westminster Abbey service, being staged on December 8 and broadcast on ITV1 on Christmas Eve.
The service will combine traditional and modern elements to encompass people of all faiths and none, and will see the Westminster Abbey choir perform some of the nation’s favourite carols.
