Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have released their official Christmas card

Well, if you weren't in the festive spirit already then perhaps the first royal Christmas card will get you into the holiday mood.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have released their official Christmas card for 2016, and it's just as lovely as you would imagine.

In the elegant card, there's a photo of Prince Charles and Camilla smiling at the camera while surrounded by a merry group of Croatian dancers wearing traditional national garb. The picture was taken earlier this year when the couple toured Croatia and the Croatian Artistic Society performed a dance for them.

The inside of the card simply reads, ‘Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year.' Well, thank you very much!

Doesn't it look wonderful?

To be honest, we were sort of hoping that the royal family might get inspired by Madame Tussauds dressing the royal family in ugly Christmas jumpers and perhaps do something similar for their own holiday card, but it was not to be! 

We'll have to wait a little longer to see what Prince William and Duchess Kate do for their holiday card this year, however. Here's hoping that it involves the adorable Prince George and Princess Charlotte wearing festive outfits! Perhaps even Lupo the cocker spaniel will get in on the fun?
