It is Christmas season again, and many royal families are checking their favorite traditions off their lists, including publishing Christmas Cards. The royal family of Monaco recently joined the long line.
Earlier this week, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco shared their Christmas card photo. In a Facebook video, the family shared a lovely snap of themselves against the backdrop of a Christmas tree.
The Christmas card showed Prince Albert dressed in a grey suit with a silver tie. On the other hand, Princess Charlene donned an ice blue dress. It also showed the couple's twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, looking adorable as well.
As the card showed, the family posed behind a Christmas tree with gifts and ornaments around it. The tree marks a significant departure from the generic green Christmas tree variants.
While they might not be able to step out for Christmas this year, the family definitely looks ready to enjoy their holiday. A translation of their message reads:
"May the spirit of Christmas be with you throughout the New Year/ We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2021."
Sources have confirmed that the royals will have a low-key Christmas celebration this year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Prince Albert reportedly claimed that the family plans to have a stay-cation at Roc Angel and Monaco.
Most members of the British royal family have also committed to toning down the celebrations.
With kids around, they will be looking to play things safe. Prince Albert also added that they plan to see some other royal family members on Christmas Day. However, they will not be having any large gatherings.
The royal family of Monaco appears to be toeing the same line as several other royal families. In the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth has canceled the annual Christmas Day celebration at Sandringham.
Most members of the British royal family have also committed to toning down the celebrations. They are reportedly looking to set a responsible example for many across the country.
Amid the Christmas celebrations, the Monaco royal family has been doing its bit to spread some Christmas cheer. Recently, Princess Charlene attended a Christmas gift distribution event for children.
At the event, the Princess notably showed off a new edge haircut. Instead of her characteristically blonde bob, she wore a "half hawk" haircut.
The Princess also complemented her look with a face mask, which she wore as she spoke with children and others. While her haircut grabbed the most headlines that day, her act of cheerfulness and generosity should also be noted.
