Meghan and Prince Harry share Christmas cards with little Archie in the lead role

In the map, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex focus their attention on a fair-haired Archie, as the family is surrounded by their two dogs, a miniature house and lush greenery. A small Christmas tree decorated with a red bow is located nearby.

“I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,” reads the card.

The image, which appears to be an illustration, represents the first look at Archie since his first birthday in May.
“The original photo of the family was taken at their home earlier this month by the Duchess’ mother,” a spokesman for the family said, according to Page Six. “The little Christmas tree, including homemade ornaments and other decorations, was chosen by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays.”
Harry and Meghan have been very protective of Archie’s privacy and sued in July over paparazzi photos of him. The couple resigned from their roles as members of the royal family in early 2020 and moved to Santa Barbara, California, in July.

The Christmas card was released through Mayhew, a London-based animal welfare charity that is one of Meghan’s patronages.

“This year, as a family, we have made donations to several charities with you in mind,” Meghan is quoted on the card. From a local California organization that helps families overcome homelessness to two of our UK protections: one that supports animal and community welfare, and the other a memorial fund for a valued friend who helps educate children and fight poverty in Uganda, we have honored their work on behalf of us all. ”

Mayhews CEO Caroline Yates said the organization was very pleased to have Markle as its patron.

“We were especially honored to recently receive a personal donation from the Duke and Duchess, which will enable us to help even more cats, dogs and pet owners in need during this harsh winter period,” Yates wrote.
