The beautiful black-and-white card shows an out of focus Meghan and Prince Harry with big smiles on their faces as they watch their first child crawl towards the camera. The Christmas card read, “Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, From our family to yours.”
How cute is this card? And Prince William and Kate Middleton also showed their family of five enjoying time together while posing near a motorcycle. Although, this Christmas card was leaked before William and Kate were able to reveal it to the public themselves.
As many followers of the royal family already know, Prince Harry, Prince William, and their respective families will not be spending the holidays together this year. A statement released by Buckingham Palace explained Harry and Meghan’s decision:
“Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses 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 continued that their decision to spend their holiday in Canada, with Archie’s maternal grandmother, “reflects the importance of this Commonwealth country to them both.”
“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.”
Regardless of where the members of the royal family are, let’s just home the little ones are feeling the warmth of this holiday season.
