The Spanish royal family has released their annual Christmas card on Twitter, and it’s equal parts adorable and casual. The image chosen for the holiday card shows King Felipe, Queen Letizia, and their two daughters—13-year-old Princess Leonor and 11-year-old and Princess Sofía—smiling on a mountaintop overlooking the Lakes of Covadonga. The picture was taken back in September, during Princess Leonor’s first visit to Asturias.

“With great affection and our best wishes” is handwritten inside of the card, above printed text that reads, “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2019” in both Spanish and English. Below the messages are the signatures of each members of the royal family.
The photo appears to be from the royals’ hike at the Picos de Europa national park in Asturias, Spain for its 100th anniversary in October. The visit was a special one for Leonor, as it was the Princess of Asturias’s first official trip to the Principality of Asturias as heir.

Queen Letizia looked chic as usual, wearing a crisp white button-down shirt, beige trousers and sneakers, and a leather crossbody bag.
Leonor, heir apparent to the Spanish throne, recently gave her first public speech as a royal. The princess spoke at an event honoring the 40th anniversary of the Spanish constitution in Madrid, according to the BBC.
This year’s card is much more casual than last year’s holiday greeting from the family. The photo featured was a portrait taken of the royal quartet, all dressed in coordinating formal wear outside of the palace on Spain’s National Day, reports People.
