Prince William and Kate Middleton’s official 2017 holiday card was shared by Kensington Palace on Dec. 18.

Their family of four posed alongside each other for their annual holiday photo, and they all look quite polished and happy.

The caption reads: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family. The image features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year. The photograph shows The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their two children at Kensington Palace.”

The photo was snapped earlier this year by photographer Chris Jackson and shows the Prince and Middleton standing side by side with their children in front of them. Each are flashing a smile and wearing coordinating blue outfits. Aww!

What’s In Store For The Cambridges In 2018

The Instagram caption also gave away important news about what the New Year will hold for the family (besides, you know, a new baby!). According to the post, Princess Charlotte will be starting Willcocks Nursery School in January 2018. She’s growing up so quickly!

We remember Prince George’s first day of school like it was yesterday. Here he was on his way to nursery school in 2016:

Big things are in store for the family in 2018. Not only is their little girl going off to nursery school, but William and Kate are expecting their third child in April. They’ll also be welcoming Meghan Markle into the royal family when she marries Prince Harry in May. Exciting times, indeed!

Holiday Cards From Years Past

This isn’t the first time that the family has shared their holiday photo with the public.

Their 2016 snap—reportedly mailed rather than shared via Kensington Palace’s official account—featured a candid shot of the family of four stopping while on a visit to Canada to get balloon animals made while out for a day of fun.

In 2015, their official family portrait and season’s greetings showcased a young Prince George and Princess Charlotte posing in the grass with their parents.

This year’s card definitely highlights just how much the children have grown up! No matter how old Prince George and Princess Charlotte get, we hope the family photos keep coming. Because this family is seriously too cute.

We can’t wait for what 2018 holds in store for them!
