Princess Charlene in their 2016 Christmas card

For this year's Christmas card, Princess Charlene chose to wear a gold, long-sleeved Ralph Lauren dress, which was discovered by Heaven. She wore gold Jimmy Choo shoes and simple earrings with the outfit. As she usually does, the Princess of Monaco finished off her look with red lipstick. If you want to dress like Charlene, you can find an affordable copycat for this dress here

The Prince's Palace of Monaco released their annual Christmas card on December 22 with six other photos. The photos were taken by Vanessa Von Zitzewitz.

The images this year were in a more formal setting as opposed to last year, which had a more relaxed theme.

The video at the top of the article was released by the family on Christmas Eve - giving the public a behind-the-scenes look at the day the photographs were taken. 

You can read more about the images in this article, which was written by myself for Royal Central after the images were released.

If you sent Their Serene Highnesses a Christmas card this year, this is the photo that will greet you when you receive your reply! I received my card on December 26, and I must say it is a favorite of mine!
