At the time, William posed for a photo overlooking the ruins and said, "I need to come back with the family for this shot."

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family," a statement from the palace read.

This year, the kiddos β€” Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Louis β€” are looking forward to being with Queen Elizabeth for the holidays.
