Now that’s a cute royal Christmas Card!
On December 23, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave everyone an adorable new photo of their 2 year old son Archie and 6 month old daughter Lilibet when they announced their annual holiday card, which featured a sweet portrait of the family of four. Smile taken by Alexi Lubomirski this summer at the couple’s home in Santa Barbara, Calif.
In the snapshot, baby boy Archie, twin to his parents wearing jeans, sits on his father’s lap. Beside them, Meghan, dressed in denim with a navy blue sweater, held a smiling baby Lilibet. “This year, 2021, we welcome our daughter, Lilibet, to the world,” the family said in a statement. “Archie has turned us into ‘Mama’ and ‘Papa’, and Lili has made us a family. We look forward to 2022, where we have donated on your behalf to several organizations honoring and protect families — from people displaced from Afghanistan, for American families in need of paid parental leave.”
The list of organizations includes Team Rubicon, Welcome.US, Human First Coalition, Humanity Crew, Paid Leave For All, PL+US, and Marshall Plan for Moms.
The family concluded their message, “Wishing you a happy holiday and a prosperous new year, from our family to you!”
This holiday season is sure to be a special one for Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, as it is the first for little Lili, who they welcome on June 4 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California. Since the arrival of their little one, the couple have introduced Lilibet to their favorite holiday traditions — including Halloween.
During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November, Meghan shared with viewers that she and Harry “want to do something fun for the kids“and dressed them, but they were ‘unsuccessful’ as adults.
“Archie was a dinosaur in five minutes,” she said of her son’s costume, in front of the presenter Ellen DeGeneres—Who visited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Halloween night — reminded her that “Harry told him to put his head on.”
For Lili, her outfit paid homage to an iconic Disney character. “She’s a little skunk,” Meghan said. “Like Flower from Bambi.”
Meghan also got a glimpse of her family life since moved to California from UK, saying that she and Harry are “just happy.”
She explained, “We moved here during the closure, exactly when everything was closed, so we could spend a lot of time at home and create our own home, but I think that’s it.” it’s just the lifestyle and the weather is pretty cool.”
