Like any piece of art, William and Kate’s holiday photo is full of Easter eggs.

And finally, there’s Princess Charlotte’s impatience with the whole situation given that there’s a lonely train on the ground left to play with itself, and that her shoe has fallen off and nobody cares.

A statement from the palace sends gratitude to their supporters:

“The Duke and Duchess are hugely appreciative of all the warm messages they have received about their family this year and are very much looking forward to their first Christmas as a family of four.”

Among the adorable photo, it was announced that Prince George will be attending the Westacre Montessori School Nursery come the end of January 2016. The BBC reports that his new nursery is sited on a private road and is working to maintain the family’s privacy. The school says that Prince George would “get the same special experience as all of our children”.
