  • Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a new photo for their Christmas card this year
  • The Prince and Princess of Wales sported jeans, while their kids wore shorts and sneakers in the shot
  • Royal fans praised the family's latest portrait on social media

Prince William and Kate Middleton just released their most casual family Christmas card yet.

On Tuesday, the Prince and Princess of Wales shared via Twitter and Instagram a new photo of their family — including their three children Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — for their 2022 Christmas card.

"Sharing a new picture of the family for this year's Christmas card!" the caption read.

The snap, which was taken at their home in Norfolk, England, showed the family of five all dressed casually as they held hands and enjoyed a sunny stroll.

The future king and queen consort both sported jeans in the photo, with Princess Kate pairing hers with a white long-sleeve top and sneakers and Prince William donning a navy button-down long-sleeve shirt.

Their three kids opted to pair their shorts with short-sleeve shirts and sneakers. Prince George and Prince both wore light blue tops, while Prince Louis was adorable in his striped polo shirt.

Prince William and Middleton's new family photo was taken by environmental portrait photographer Matt Porteous, who also captured the family's Christmas card picture in 2018. He has worked with the Waleses several times and for different occasions, including Prince George's birthday and Prince Louis' christening.

It is unclear exactly when this year the family photo was taken.

A number of royal fans took to social media to praise the family's new Christmas card photo and express their support to the Waleses amid the drama following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix docuseries, "Harry & Meghan."

"Stunning family card," one Twitter user commented with heart and clapping hands emojis. "We love and respect you. Stay strong. Focus on your duties. You represent perfectly the Institution, always with heads held high. We are impatient to see your next projects and causes in 2023."

"We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and are very proud of you! God bless you! Merry Christmas!!!" another user added.

"This isn't just a Christmas card, it's clearly a united fort, a united family that will face anything together. They are the future of the monarchy, and they are telling you that without saying a single word. Congratulations to this family, stay strong and united," a third royal supporter wrote.

"Thank God for this beautiful family! Merry Christmas, Wales fam," another user commented.

"This picture is just so beautiful, and I'm so impressed by the family's perfect synchronization with each other. Thank you so much for sharing this new picture with us, and Merry Christmas," a fifth person said.

For last year's Christmas card photo, Prince William, Middleton and their children posed during a private family trip to Jordan. The mom of three and Princess Charlotte wore dresses, while Prince William, Prince George and Prince Louis wore polo shirts and shorts.

In 2020, the family sat on haystacks as they looked cozy in sweaters next to each other at their country home Anmer Hall, which is part of the royal family's Sandringham estate.
