See William and Kate's Adorable Royal Family Christmas Card

The Palace just released Their Royal Highnesses' official family photo.

Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, just unveiled this year's Christmas card, which features the always impeccably dressed young family in color coordinated blue outfits looking picture perfect.

In the photo, taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson, two-year-old Princess Charlotte bears striking resemblance to her great-grandmother, the Queen, with the identical smile as Her Majesty, who is known as "Gan-Gan" to her great-grandchildren. She is also noticeably more comfortable in front of the camera than her four year-old brother, Prince George.

Prince William, 35, wears his signature blue suit and light blue tie. Kate chose a very Princess Diana-like peplum jacket and matching pencil skirt from designer Catherine Walker for the photo.

The photo appears to have been taken before Kate announced she was expecting her third child (due in April), since there's no sign of a baby bump.

Prince George, who has turned a bit shy as he enters toodlerhood, looks a bit uncertain in front of the camera.

Princess Charlotte, as befitting a possible future Queen, looks very sure of herself. She is wearing a dress she wore during the royal tour to Poland.

It was just announced the Princess will attend Willcocks Nursery School in January, where preschoolers are treated to pottery classes and poetry. William and Kate will be invited to a "stay and play" session to see if the young princess is ready to be separated from her parents.

From the looks of the Christmas card, something tells us she's ready to take on the world. Something in the genes.
