William and Kate’s Christmas card photoshopped goes viral

Featuring a plain white background, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Christmas card this year is a lot more formal than in previous years. 

But social media users have added a touch of fun to the family portrait – by adding a variety of colourful backgrounds using Photoshop.

In one image, the Cambridges are seen wearing astronaut helmets while in outer-space.

Others show the family-of-four polar-bear spotting in the Arctic and joining the Teletubbies in La La Land. 

Posting on Twitter, Ciara Knight – who compiled the images for Joe.co.uk – wrote: ‘Some alternative backdrops for your consideration.’

Another commented ‘These are fantastic’, while one added: ‘Funny!’  

Released by Kensington Palace on Monday, the Cambridges’ Christmas card features a touching family portrait taken earlier this year.

In the image, Princess Charlotte, two, bears a striking resemblance to her great-grandmother The Queen.

The toddler is seen wearing a blue floral dress in the image, while Prince George, four, looks smart in a striped shirt and shorts. 

Their parents meanwhile opted to wear matching blue ensembles for the photograph, with Kate, 35, choosing a feminine peplum jacket and matching pencil skirt from Catherine Walker.

The photograph was taken by Getty royal photographer Chris Jackson at Kensington Palace earlier this year.
