Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Christmas cards are always perfect, but in 2022, especially so. It showed the British royals and their three young children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—strolling down a country lane in slightly different shades of blue, with William’s button-down matching George’s shorts, which then corresponded perfectly with his little sister’s sneakers. The intended message of the color coordination was obvious: they were a united family unit.
Later that year, the Prince and Princess of Wales released a photo to mark Prince Louis’s 5th birthday. In it, he wore a blueberry-hued Fair Isle sweater and a gleeful expression as his mom pushed him in a wheelbarrow. A few weeks later, as Princess Charlotte turned nine, her parents shared a snap of their daughter in a white dress dotted with periwinkle flowers. And, for Prince George’s annual memento, he posed at Windsor in a navy-and-white checkered shirt. In a short span of time, it was, well, a whole lotta blue.
