The Sussex finally revealed their 2020 Christmas greeting, and the card couldn’t be sweeter. The holiday message, which includes an illustration of Harry, Meghan, Archie and two puppies in front of what appears to be a small toy house, was shared by the animal welfare charity Mayhew on social media this afternoon.
According to a Sussex spokesman, “the original family photo was taken at her home earlier this month by the Duchess’s mother. The small Christmas tree, including homemade ornaments and other decorations, was selected by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays. “
On Twitter, Mayhew noted that he was “thrilled” to receive Christmas wishes from his patron Meghan, and shared that the card included confirmation that the Sussex made several personal charitable donations this year, including one to Mayhew.

“This year we, as a family, made donations to various charities thinking about you. From a local California organization that helps families transition from homelessness to two of our sponsors in the UK: one that supports animal and community welfare and the other, a memorial fund for a dear friend who helps educate children and fight poverty in Uganda, we honor their work on behalf of all of us, ”said the card, according to the charity.
In a link on his website, Mayhew also specifically noted that Meghan’s donation will help them “withstand the continuing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and allow us to reach out to animals and people who are fighting”.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are spending their first Christmas together in the United States, having celebrated 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 move away from their real roles in early 2020.)
But it’s not just Meghan, Harry and Archie who are having a very different Christmas this year. In the midst of the pandemic, the entire royal family revamped their traditional plans, which often see them vacationing at the Sandringham estate and walking to Christmas day services at the estate’s church as a group – an annual event for dedicated royal observers, that line up the church path to wish the Windsors the best.
Instead, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip will remain at Windsor Castle this winter. As a Buckingham Palace spokesman said T&C at the beginning of this season, “After considering all the appropriate advice, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh decided that this year they will spend Christmas at Windsor. It is the first time since 1988 that the monarch has not celebrated the holiday at Sandringham.
