It is the most wonderful time of the year. Yes, Christmas is just around the corner, but so is Royal Family Christmas Card Season. After last year’s GIF style greeting – which was also Baby Archie’s Christmas card debut – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry returned this year with their annual festive photo, and it did not look like anything you had expected.
Instead of an actual photograph, the duke and duchess ordered a drawing of the family instead. The picture on which the illustration is based is taken by Meghan’s mother, Doria, and shows the family posing in front of a child – sized in a yard where Baby Archie is sitting on her father’s Prince Harry’s lap. The couple’s two dogs also look.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex transferred the honor of sharing the Christmas card to Mayhew, an organization Meghan has worked with since 2019. It rescues dogs, cats and other animals and helps them find a safe home.
“We are thrilled to receive wonderful Christmas wishes from our patron, the Duchess of Sussex. You Duke and Duchess have also made a personal donation and helped us continue to be there for dogs, cats and people in our community this winter and so on. From all of us at Mayhew, two- and four-legged, thank you and Merry Christmas, “the organization wrote the caption for the Christmas card on Instagram.

Last year, the Duke and Duchess went from the traditional royal Christmas photo and went to a more relaxed, cozy setup and chose to send electronic cards to be more environmentally conscious. The picture showed Meghan and Harry laughing when they saw the newborn Archie crawling towards the camera. The photo was taken by Janina Gavankar – actress, photographer and friend of Meghan.
Last month, ELLE.com reported that the Duke and Duchess were expected to spend Christmas with Meghan’s mother Doria in California. The couple has not yet announced any official vacation plans. but it is “expected that they will be in their home in Montecito, California and not be in the UK for Christmas,” a source close to the couple told ELLE.
