Prince William and Kate Middleton aren’t the only ones with an official Christmas card.
The Kensington Palace Twitter account released Harry’s attempt at holiday cheer with the message, “Merry Christmas from Prince Harry! Here’s his Christmas card showing one of his favourite moments from 2015.”

According to E! Online, the man alongside Harry is Tom Neil, 95, a veteran of the Battle of Britain. The photo was taken on Harry’s 31st birthday this September at the commemoration of the battle’s 75th anniversary. Neil has served as a lieutenant in the British Army. Try not to get jealous when you look at that grip Neil has on Prince Harry’s hand.
In a time when much of the press surrounding Harry is about his personal life — and his potential romance with Pippa Middleton — the card is a reminder of Harry’s service to his country (or an attempt by Kensington Palace to throw us off the mark?).
In contrast, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official Christmas card is an adorable, casual family portrait featuring Prince George and Princess Charlotte. This year’s photo is the first time the family has released an official holiday card, and only the second time they’ve released a photo of Princess Charlotte and Prince George. We guess Prince Harry got a little jealous.

The family will be spending Christmas in their country home Amner Hall on the queen’s Sandringham Estate. Kate’s family is expected to join the royal family after Christmas service.
