And, lucky for us, said thank-you notes leaked online -- the message; the adorable family photo the note included; everything.

Wanna see it?

Super cute, right? And here's the sweet message Kate included:

Even though the entire universe pretty much saw photos from Prince George's christening, I can't think of a more perfect photo to include in a holiday thank-you. I'm sure their dog, Lupo, isn't too happy that he's not part of the family pic, but it's a great shot nonetheless. Both William and Kate look gorgeous (shocker), and Prince George looks happy and silly and playful. Perfection. Also, the couple was probably wary of the thank-you notes being leaked online, so it was smart to go with a "public" photo everyone has already seen.

That Duchess, you guys. The lady really knows how to send out a thank-you. No doubt, Prince George will have impeccable manners in no time.

What do you think of Kate's thank-you cards?
