Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II will soon give out Christmas cards, but only to a certain group of people.

Bronte Coy, a journalist for, said that every year, the royal couple sends out around 750 cards featuring their photo. The personal cards also feature the handwritten signatures of Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh. The royal couple has been sending out Christmas cards since 1952.

According to the royal family’s website, the Christmas cards are typically given to family, friends, and members of the royal household. The British and Commonwealth prime ministers, governor generals, and high commissions also receive the personalized notes. Prince Philip is known for sending out an extra 2,000 cards to different regiments and organizations that are close to him.

The publication released one of the Queen’s Christmas cards from 1942, which featured a stunning solo photo of the monarch.

“It is a great honor and privilege to have been appointed colonel of the Grenadier Guards and I shall do all in my power to uphold and foster the great traditions of the regiment which I have already learned to love,” the card’s typewritten text read.

At the bottom of the card, the Queen wrote the words, “Wishing you a very merry Christmas and happy New Year.”

In related news, the Queen and Prince Philip aren’t the only two royals that send out adorable Christmas cards. Prince Charles and Princess Diana also did a similar thing when their sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, were still young.

And one year after Princess Diana died, Prince Charles sent out cards featuring himself with her two sons. In the snap, Prince Harry is sitting on his dad’s lap, while Prince William is standing behind them.

Prince Charles has also given out Christmas cards with his current wife Camilla Parker Bowles. In 2013, they included a candid snap of the two of them in their white and red card.
