The Sussexes have finally revealed their Christmas greeting in 2020, and the card could not be sweeter. The holiday announcement, which includes an illustration of Harry, Meghan, Archie and two puppies in front of what appears to be a small playhouse, was shared by animal welfare charity Mayhew on social media this afternoon.
According to a spokesman for Sussexes, “The original photo of the family was taken at their home earlier this month by the Duchess’ mother. The small Christmas tree including homemade ornaments and other decorations was chosen by Archie and the tree will be replanted after the holidays. ”
On Twitter, Mayhew noted that they were “excited” to receive Christmas wishes from their patron Meghan and shared that the card included a confirmation that Sussexes has made a number of personal charitable donations this year, including one to Mayhew.

“This year, as a family, we have made donations to several charities with you in mind. From a local organization in California that helps families move out of 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 all of us, ”read the charity card.
In a link on their website, Mayhew also specifically noted that Meghan’s donation will help them “overcome the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and enable us to reach the animals and humans who are struggling.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are spending their first Christmas together in the US after celebrating the holiday only twice in Sandringham with the Royal Family in 2017 and 2018 and in Canada last year. (The couple spent some time in the Commonwealth country in late fall and winter 2019 before announcing their intention to step down from their royal roles in early 2020.)
But it’s not just Meghan, Harry and Archie who have a completely different Christmas this year. In the midst of the pandemic, the entire royal family has mixed up about their traditional plans, which usually see them spend their holidays at Sandringham estate and go to Christmas Day services in the estate church as a group – an annual event for devoted royal overseers lining up along the church path Windsors well.
Instead, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip will remain at Windsor Castle this winter. As a spokesman for Buckingham Palace told T&C earlier this season, “After considering all the relevant advice, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have decided that this year they will spend Christmas quietly in Windsor.” This is the first time since 1988 that the monarch has not celebrated his holiday at Sandringham.
