It's about as colourful as a royal Christmas card gets and nothing says festive party better than dancing. Put the two together and what do you get? The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall's Christmas card for 2016, of course.
Charles and Camilla have decided to celebrate the festive season this time round with a photo taken on their tour of Croatia in March this year.
The royal couple are seen posing with dancers who welcomed them to Osijek with a traditional moves and music. But you have to open this card up to reach the treat - the outside just features the pair's individual monograms. Not one to display propped slightly open on the mantelpiece.

There's also a bit of behind the scenes action with a video that shows how the card came about - perhaps highlighting the importance of the Christmas picture in the way that the royal year is told and remembered. And 2016 is going down as a colourful year for Charles and Camilla.
