Prince William and Kate star in new anniversary portrait

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge treated fans to a new portrait of the happy couple. Delighted well-wishers who congratulated them on their fifth wedding anniversary, the duo doled out thank you cards featuring the new photo. The image on the front of the card shows the royal pair looking the picture of happiness while standing in a garden – possibly on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

A photo of the card was shared on Twitter by royal photographer Paul Ratcliffe, who had sent an anniversary card to Prince William and Kate in April.

"Lovely thank you card received from TRH The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge for their 5th Wedding anniversary," he tweeted.

The image shows Prince William smiling in a smart blue suit and tie while standing with his arm around the Duchess, who looks elegant in a cream jacket and pleated skirt.

A glimpse at the back of the card reveals the photo was taken by Chris Jelf, the photographer who was also responsible for capturing William and Kate's family portrait with Prince George and Princess Charlotte that was released to the public as an early Christmas gift.

The card read: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were so touched that you took the trouble to write as you did on the occasion of their 5th Wedding Anniversary. It really was most thoughtful of you and Their Royal Highnesses send you their warmest thanks and best wishes."

Prince William and Kate celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary together on April 29. They have since enjoyed a busy month that has seen them celebrate Princess Charlotte's first birthday and attend the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations in Windsor, as well as launch their mental health charity Heads Together and attend their first garden party of the year at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.
