Prince Charles and Camilla have wished Brits a Merry Christmas and shared a picture – with the Royal Family forced to spend this Christmas apart.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall chose a pic of themselves holding walks at their Scottish retreat of Birkhall, taken in autumn.
The couple are spending the festive season at their Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire.
It comes after Prince William and Kate Middleton wished for a “better 2021”, sharing pictures of people working throughout the festive season.
The Royal Family are spending Christmas at their own residences this year instead of gathering at Sandringham.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh decided to have a quiet Christmas at Windsor Castle.
The head of state and Philip normally host their large family in Norfolk over the holidays and are watched by hundreds as they attend church on Christmas Day.
However, in a reflection of the Christmas celebration choices made by families across the country, the couple announced at the start of December they would remain at Windsor.
The Queen is expected to attend a private Christmas Day service in a chapel within Windsor Castle and not join the congregation at her local place of worship, to avoid large crowds of well-wishers gathering.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family are in Norfolk at their home of Anmer Hall.
