In the picture, taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski, Meghan is seen happily holding Lilibet in the air, while Harry balances his son Archie on his lap.
“This year, 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, to the world,” the couple wrote on the front of the card. “Archie made us a ‘mom’ and a ‘dad’, and Lili made us a family.”
Meghan gave birth to Lilibet, who bears the name of her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, who receives this nickname, in a hospital in Santa Barbara in June this year.
The royal couple then explained that they were giving money this year to various organizations “that honor and protect families,” including those that focus on Afghan resettlement, and organizations that support paid parental leave in the United States.
Christmas seems a little different for the British royal family this year due to the rise in Omicron cases in the UK.
Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, will be accompanied by Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, at Christmas at Windsor Castle, changing their plans due to the increase in cases.
In a typical year, the Queen travels to her rural estate in Sandringham for the family’s annual Christmas retreat.
But in recent weeks, the palace has been taking extra precautions due to the coronavirus, including the cancellation of a pre-Christmas meal that the monarch usually organizes for the extended family.
