Each year we await the special Sussex family Christmas card, and this Christmas, the now family of four shared a special message that’s close to their hearts, donating to several organisations that work to protect families. On 23 Dec., Meghan Markle and Prince Harry released this year’s edition, with an adorable shoutout to their new family member: baby Lilibet.
The photo featured on the card was taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski, who also shot the couple’s engagement pictures, at the couple’s home in Santa Barbara, CA. The sweet photo sees both Prince Harry and Meghan sat with their son Archie, and holding a laughing Lilibet.
The card was shared on the Team Rubicon website, along with a message that read “Happy Holiday. This year, 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, to the world. Archie made us a ‘Mama’ and a ‘Papa’, and Lili made us a family. As we look forward to 2022, we have made donations on your behalf to several organizations that honor and protect families – from those being relocated from Afghanistan, to American families in need of paid parental leave.” In addition to Team Rubicon, those organisations included Welcome.US, Human First Coalition, Humanity Crew, Paid Leave For All, PL+US, and Marshall Plan for Moms.
The Sussex’s signed off the card with “Wishing you a happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year, from our family to yours! As ever, Harry, Meghan, Archie & Lili.”
