After being teased by a close Meghan Markle confidant earlier this week, Prince Harry and Markle released their holiday card cleverly through a charity that is near and dear to their heart! Mayhew posted the photo to Instagram and included a message from Markle on their site,
“This year we, as a family, have made donations to several charities with you in mind. From a local California organization that helps families transition out of homelessness, to two of our U.K. patronages: one that supports animal and community welfare, and the other, a memorial fund for a cherished friend that helps to educate children and fight poverty in Uganda, we have honored their work on behalf of all of us.”
Markle is a Mayhew Patron.
The holiday card features the couple and their dogs playing with Archie in a miniature playhouse. Archie appears to have a precious head of hair! I want to say the style of photo is vector art, but I could be wrong. We’ve seen a major rise in this type of artwork over the last year on social media.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex says the photo was taken by Markle’s mom Doria and, “The small Christmas tree, including the homemade ornaments and other decorations, were selected by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays.”
A week ago, Prince William and Kate Middleton released their family’s holiday card after a tabloid prematurely leaked the photo. The family is snuggled up on hay bales with logs behind them. Fans insist that Prince Louis stole the show with his infectious giggle! His little cheeks are divine!
According to one of the leaked holiday cards, the inside had a hand written note from the Duchess that read, “We can never thank you again for all the dedication and sacrifice you have had to make this year. We will be forever grateful.”
Happy Holidays to our favorite royals!
