Charles and Camilla have shared their first ever Christmas card as King and Queen Consort, and the lovely snap was taken just days before Queen Elizabeth II passed away in September.
Charles and Camilla’s festive photo was captured at the Braemar Royal Highland Gathering on 3 September when the former was still the Prince of Wales.
The happily-married couple beamed at the annual event and the image was taken by Sam Hussein.
The Queen herself did not attend the event as she was too poorly. The monarch died five days after the Braemar Royal Highland Gathering on 8 September at the age of 96.
The photo was released on Sunday (11 December) by Buckingham Palace and shows King Charles III looking dapper in a tweed suit.
Camilla, meanwhile, looks typically elegant in a green suit and matching hat.
The royals joined crowds in watching competitors face off in games like the hammer throw, caber toss and of course tug of war.
Charles also used his visit to the popular Highland Games event to open a new structure at the Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park commemorating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which took place in June.
The card’s release comes shortly after the release of Charles’ son Prince Harry’s documentary.
The long-awaited series finally hit Netflix on 8 December and has left people seriously divided.
What’s more, the documentary features a disclaimer noting that the royal family had declined to comment on the show’s content.
The synopsis for the series reads: "In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.
"Across six episodes, the series explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution.
"With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family's relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple's love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other.
"From the critically-acclaimed, two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director Liz Garbus, Harry & Meghan is a never-before-seen look at one of the most-discussed couples in history."
Since the doc aired on Netflix, some customers have actually threatened to cancel their subscriptions because of it, which seems a bit much.
