Cute photo Prince William and Kate Middleton sent to fans in their thank you cards

Over the past year, Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate have corresponded with fans. One lucky fan received a special gift.

A Royal fan named Sara who has the handle @Irishsara1980 on Twitter posted a family portrait of William’s family. The picture was given to her by the Royal couple this month.

Sara not only received the picture, but she also got a letter from Prince William and Duchess Kate. The family portrait was taken by Royal photographer Chris Jackson last year.

It’s the same image that was used for the Cambridges' official Christmas card. The photo shows William and Kate dressed in powder blue.

In 2016, she wore the same outfit during a visit to the Netherlands. Their two eldest children also featured in the portrait.

Prince George, 5, was four at the time that the photo was taken. He matched his parents by wearing a blue and white shirt and navy shorts.

Princess Charlotte, 3, looked cute in a floral blue dress. The Christmas card was released four months before Kate gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, 6-months-old.

In July, the Royal family posed for their first official portrait as a family-of-five at Louis' christening. Fans hope that this year’s Christmas card will include the latest addition.

The British Royals usually send thank you cards to fans who have written to them. Sometimes it’s a birthday card, a congratulatory card, or just a hello.

Last month, Prince Harry sent a thank you card after his 34th birthday celebrations. The postcard was a portrait of the prince smiling during a trip to Guyana last year.

His note read:

"The Duke of Sussex is most grateful to you for writing as you did on the occasion of his 34th birthday. It really was so thoughtful of you and His Royal Highness sends his warmest thanks and best wishes."

Kate is known for taking her own children’s images. Gina Jones from Bumpkins, The Baby Show’s lead experts explained that the Duchess did this herself mainly because of her thriftiness.

Jones said that Kate was trying to be “resourceful with money."
