Meghan Markle and Prince Harry share the first American Christmas card – and Archie has red hair!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry released a family holiday card before their first American Christmas in Montecito, California.

The card, which is an illustration of a photo, was released by Mayhew, sponsor of Meghan’s animal welfare organization in the UK

Starring in the front and center is the couple’s 19-month-old son, Archie (who clearly inherited red hair from his father Harry!) And his two adorable dogs, Pula and Guy.

โ€œI wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Yearโ€, says the card.

“The original family photo was taken at her home earlier this month by the Duchess’s mother,” said a spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. “The small Christmas tree, including homemade ornaments and other decorations, was selected by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays.โ€

The card offers a glimpse into Meghan and Harry’s backyard – and Archie’s special theater!

“Archie is very happy and has room to run freely,” a source told People. “The house came with a game structure that he will be working on shortly.”

On the card, Meghan confirms that her family has made a personal donation to Mayhew, who will support his vital work to help dogs, cats and communities.

โ€œThis year, we, as a family, made donations to various charities thinking of you,โ€ wrote Meghan. โ€œFrom a local California organization that helps families transition from homelessness to two of our sponsorships in United Kingdom: one that supports animal and community welfare, and the other, a memorial fund for a dear friend who helps to educate children and fight poverty in Uganda, we honor their work on behalf of all of us. “

Last year, Meghan and Harry shared their first Christmas card as a family of three. They spent the last vacation season on Vancouver Island, Canada, as they prepared to leave their roles as royalty.

In 2018, the then-newlyweds released their first Christmas card as a couple with a snap of their royal wedding reception at Casa Frogmore.

The couple is “excited” to celebrate their first Christmas together in their new California home, which they bought over the summer. Just as they did on Thanksgiving Day, Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, will join them for the holiday.

The couple had fun decorating their new home for the season and even went to buy a Christmas tree.

“Archie is thriving and growing rapidly. As a family, they spend hours away,” a source told People.

Meghan and Harry suffered a difficult defeat shortly after their move to Montecito. And with time for reflection around Thanksgiving, Meghan decided to speak openly about her abortion in July.

“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable pain, experienced by many, but spoken by a few,” wrote Meghan in a New York Times rehearsal last month.

Christmas will be different for the whole royal family in the midst of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Queen Elizabeth canceled the annual celebration of the royal family at Sandringham while secluding herself next to her husband, Prince Philip, at Windsor Castle, amid the ongoing pandemic.
