Prince WilliamAnd Kate Middleton released their family Christmas card last week, and its location has a sweet tie to the Duchess of Cambridge’s childhood.

The holiday photo, which shows a very relaxed side of the royal family — and Prince George in a camo T-shirt! — was taken earlier this year in Jordan, according to a release from Kensington Palace.

In this sweet picture, George, 8 years old, Prince Charlotte, 6, 6 year-old, and Prince Louis, 3 years, look extremely grown up.

Although the photograph is slightly different, last year’s holiday card location ― at the family’s Anmer Hall house in Norfolk ― it’s not an unfamiliar one for Kate.

According to the Duchess of Cambridge’s biography page on the royal family’s website, Kate’s family lived in Amman, Jordan, from May 1984 to September 1986, when her father worked as a manager for British Airways.

The duchess even attended a nursery school in Amman during the Middletons’ two and a half years in the country.

Clarence House shared a photo from the family’s time in Jordan that shows Kate, her sister, Pippa, and their father, Michael, in the city of Jerash.
