Camilla to appear on royal Christmas card
Britain's Prince of Wales(3rdL) and his wife Camilla(3rdR) have selected this family photograph taken at their wedding last April for their 2005 Christmas card.

Britain's Prince Charles and new wife Camilla have chosen one of their wedding photographs as their official Christmas card this year, finally presenting a united front after years as an unofficial couple.

It is the first time that Camilla -- officially the Duchess of Cornwall since her marriage to Charles on April 9 -- has appeared on one of the British royals' official greeting cards.

The card, released Thursday, shows Camilla, wearing the pale blue dress she wore for the church blessing ceremony that followed the civil wedding, on the arm of her new husband, with a bouquet of flowers in hand.

They are accompanied by their four adult children resulting from previous marriages, all smiling: Princes William and Harry, 23 and 21, born from Charles's marriage to the late Princess Diana, and Laura and Tom Parker Bowles, aged 26 and 30.

Despite their respective first marriages, Charles and Camilla carried on a long relationship and effectively lived together as man and wife for several years before their wedding.

Tom Parker Bowles was also married this year, five months after his mother.

The four young people know each other well and reportedly get along, though they are not close.

Prince William and Tom were thewitnessesfor their parents' wedding.

Diana appeared in the royal Christmas cards before the couple's divorce in 1996.
