I'm partial to Leo and Sofia. No other royal kids signed the card except them. 

And what did WA and Maxima sign? I can't recognize their signatures at all. And isn't it just like Maxima to sign her signature so far out of the space?

Charles and Camilla didn't even sign their card.

It is Wimlex whose siggie doesn't fit on the card and is cut off. The left (and first) signature is Maxima.

Why did the queen consort sign first? All other queens signed on the right. I guess it's fitting for Maxima & WA.

My absolutely favorite Christmas card, classic, elegant but cute and with "holiday" flair.

Charles and Camilla's is sweet; I like how "simple" (for lack of a better word) and casual the image is - it's like an image you'd find in a personal photo album Smiley But my fave "family" card is definitely Albert, Charlene and the twins - so, so sweet

The others are all nice too though I'll never like that Cambridge one. It's just too fake - surely they could have come up with something else? Put some personality into it? (keeping the train and not photoshopping the shoe out/on Charlotte (while at all the other 'shopping) isn't it, IMO) I mean... SURELY? Crap

With respect to the various Christmas cards, I found the signatures most interesting, particularly those from the SRF. Why is it that Spanish-speaking people -- I've noticed this in Mexican and Cubana friends, too -- always put extra swoopy lines under and/or around their signatures? I've seen even fairly young kids to this?

It all looks a little unusual to us Yanks' eyes, because penmanship is a lot more standard here than in Europe. Even if it isn't being taught formally in schools any longer, for the most part, you can still see traces of good old Palmer Method in most American's handwriting. (Unless they went to Dominican schools, in which case they may write in a  Dominican backhand).

I really don't think it's fair to stereotype an entire group of people based on anecdotal "evidence" you've observed among your friends.  Seriously. 

I've never heard of the Palmer Method (and I work in education).  I've never seen any Latino/Latina/Spanish friends and acquaintances sign their names with swoops and circles.  I am a Yank, and I don't find their signatures to be weird or "unusual". 

I really don't think it's okay or ethical to label an entire culture of people based on only one person's experiences.

As a born European, working in schools there and her in the US, I have to tell you that I don't see any standardized penmanship in the US. It might have been some generations ago, but handwriting here is one of the worst things in present times. Every parent I know from elementary school to high school and above complains about their children not learning cursive in schools anymore. And when we moved to the US our son was actively discouraged to write in cursive. When I stepped on the teacher's toe's, she told me that he would write differently than other children in the US  Blink  and overall the teachers are happy if the children put something on the paper, they don't care if it's pencil, pen, or marker, and prefer print.  Blink Classmates of his in high school still used to write in print  Huh? .  These schools were all A-graded schools.

You can be taught to write a certain way in a certain places, but over time your handwriting will change according on how little or much you write, it changes with age, and also changes according to your psychological state.
