Featuring a plain white background, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Christmas card this year is a lot more formal than in previous years. 

But social media users have added a touch of fun to the family portrait - by adding a variety of colourful backgrounds using Photoshop.

In one image, the Cambridges are seen wearing astronaut helmets while in outer-space.

Others show the family-of-four polar-bear spotting in the Arctic and joining the Teletubbies in La La Land. 

Posting on Twitter, Ciara Knight - who compiled the images for Joe.co.uk - wrote: 'Some alternative backdrops for your consideration.'

Make like Kate in icy blue hues this season

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released a family photo that features on their 2017 Christmas card and isn't it the cutest?

Naturally, Charlotte and George steal the show, but it's Kate's clothes we're coveting.

Her very smart pencil skirt and matching jacket is a look we've seen before during her solo tour of the Netherlands. It's by Catherine Walker, and we love the wintry pale blue hue. The belted waist and peplum hem are super flattering and we love the retro buttons and collar.

The UK-based designer's pieces were famously worn by Princess Diana, plus Kate and her mother Carole Middleton regularly turn to the label when dressing for big occasions. This custom made outfit isn't available to buy, but click (right) to browse the website.

In the image, Princess Charlotte, two, bears a striking resemblance to her great-grandmother The Queen.

The toddler is seen wearing a blue floral dress in the image, while Prince George, four, looks smart in a striped shirt and shorts. 

Their parents meanwhile opted to wear matching blue ensembles for the photograph, with Kate, 35, choosing a feminine peplum jacket and matching pencil skirt from Catherine Walker.

The photograph was taken by Getty royal photographer Chris Jackson at Kensington Palace earlier this year.

The heir to the throne is wearing a dinner jacket and black tie while his wife is dressed in a dress by Anna Valentine.

Inside the card, the words 'Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year' printed on the left-hand side and opposite is the photograph surrounded by a thin red border.
