The royals get into the Christmas spirit with festive sweaters — kinda
The British royals are getting into the Christmas spirit this year with a range of festive sweaters. Well, sort of.
If you look closely, this isn't actually the royal family, but the waxworks from Madame Tussauds in London, who are dressed for the season in honor of Save the Children's annual U.K. Christmas Jumper Day campaign. The royal family gave their permission for their waxwork figures to be dressed in Christmas sweaters for the occasion, which takes place on Dec. 16.
"We are delighted to support Save The Children by having our royal wax figures join in with the Christmas Jumper Day campaign in a seriously stylish way," said Edward Fuller, general manager of Madame Tussauds London.
And how stylish. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has donned a red and white Mrs. Claus ensemble, while her husband Prince Charles appears to be one of her elves. Prince Philip has gone for a traditional snowflake print on his burgundy sweater and Prince Harry's playful side is brought out by a cute penguin in a knit pom beanie. Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, are sharing a Christmas sweater made for two — how romantic. Finally, HRH Queen Elizabeth pays tribute to her beloved corgis with her sparkly green sweater. And the corgis themselves aren't missing out in their matching green and red sweaters.
So if you're going to be in London this month, pop into Madame Tussauds and get a selfie with your fave royal in their ugly Christmas sweater.
It remains to be seen whether the queen will choose to wear her corgi-embroidered top to give her annual Christmas Day speech.
