Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's annual Christmas card was just released, and it's almost too cute for words! In the snapshot, the proud parents look on as baby Archie flashes a grin for the camera. "Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. From our family to yours," the card read.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust tweeted out the holiday greeting card on Monday, December 22. "Just sharing the sweetest Christmas Card from our President and Vice-President, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Very Merry Christmas, everyone!” the tweet read. Meghan donned a cream colored sweater and black pants in the photo, while Harry wore jeans and a white button down. The Sussexes posed in front of their tree and smiled in the background while Archie, 7 months, got up close with the camera.
"King Archie even inherited his dad's lip bite. No wonder his mum called him a flirt! Make way ladies the royal heartbreaker is coming through," one fan wrote on Twitter. "Archie looks just like his daddy! I love how Harry and Meghan went for a casual vibe for their card," another person added. "Prince George must be so pissed he's not the cutest royal anymore," a third fan joked.
Meghan, Harry and Archie are spending the holiday season in Canada on a break from royal duties. "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are spending private family time in Canada. The decision to base themselves in Canada reflects the importance of this Commonwealth country to them both. For security reasons we will not be releasing any further details and request that their privacy is respected," their spokesperson said in a statement to Us Weekly on Friday, December 20.
They continued, "The Duke of Sussex has been a frequent visitor to Canada over many years, and it was also home to The Duchess for seven years before she became a member of the Royal Family. They are enjoying sharing the warmth of the Canadian people and the beauty of the landscape with their young son.”
In November, Buckingham Palace announced that they would be skipping the royal family's festivities at Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham House and spending Christmas with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland instead. Fans speculated that they opted to do their own thing because of Harry's rumored rift with brother Prince William.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month. Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, the couple will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the duchess’ mother, Doria Ragland.This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the royal family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen," the statement read.
