Royal family’s wax figures are wearing ugly sweaters for a very good reason

LONDON Even a family as fashionable as the Windsors can rock a tacky Christmas sweater with a smile especially if it’s for a good cause, and it’s their smiling wax figurines that are donning the ugly jumpers.

The royal family granted permission for their wax counterparts at London’s Madame Tussauds to be dressed in the festive get-ups to raise awareness for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day initiative. The campaign seeks to raise money in support of the organisation’s global work by encouraging everyone on 16 December to “wear silly festive knits and donate to save children’s lives.”

And frankly, we don’t know why they don’t dress in tacky knitwear every day because they look positively smashing.

Kate still looks perfect even in this horrid two-person sweater.

Also, can we just say that Harry looks positively dapper in this penguin knit?

The Queen’s corgis donned adorable doggy sweaters.

EEEK their little ears with their little cozy jumpers are too much.

Speaking of corgis, please appreciate HRH the Queen’s jumper.

Our only complaint is that we are mildly (severely) disappointed that George and Charlotte aren’t present.

But where are George and Charlotte??

BONUS: Princess Charlotte and Prince George’s balloon game reminds us of what childhood’s really like
