London - Perhaps they had eaten a bit too much during a family Christmas lunch at Gan Gan’s.
The little Cambridges looked rather sombre on Wednesday as they left Buckingham Palace after enjoying turkey and all the trimmings.
Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, 19 months, seemed tired and subdued as they returned by car to Kensington Palace with their parents after visiting the Queen – or Gan Gan, as they call her.
They had managed a much happier pose for the family’s annual Christmas card, which was leaked on social media on Wednesday. It shows the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children looking tanned and relaxed on their summer holidays.
