See Prince William and Kate Middleton's 2017 Christmas Card

Posted December 22, 2017

Could this mean the baby Kate's pregnant with is a boy?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge attend the Royal Variety Performance at the Palladium Theatre in London, England. While William can be seen adorably holding onto his son's shoulders and Kate's left hand is resting on her skirt, the Duchess' right arm is totally missing in the pic! According to People, Chris Jackson, royal photographer for Getty Images - who also took Prince George's official birthday portrait at July - snapped the picture likely at the same event, as George is donning the same outfit.

Prince George, sticking to his shirt-shorts combination, is seen donning royal blue shorts and a light blue, chequered shirt.

Princess Charlotte is wearing the same printed blue dress we saw her in while arriving in Germany as part of the summer 2017 royal tour.

In 2015, the family posted an outdoors picture of themselves on the card, with blue being the colour of choice then as well. "Lots of blue", one wrote.

And one quipped: "Cheeky, clearly a giveaway that number three is a boy". The entire family, including William and Kate and their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are dressed in blue for their holiday portrait.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family", Kensington Palace announces.

A closer look at the image suggests it was taken before Kate announced she was expecting her third child as her figure-hugging look reveals no hint of a baby bump.

Yesterday, odds were slashed on the abby being named Alice or Arthur after bookies received a flurry of bets.
