Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have captured the hearts of their fans with their fairytale story. But Christmas cards give a special chance to fans to slide into their family life. So here are all the beautiful moments they have shared till now.


Their love story was fresh! The first Christmas card featured a picture of the newlyweds watching the fireworks.

Holiday cheer with baby Sussex! This year, the card showcased a cheerful photo of the family. In a festive onesie, Archie sat between his parents, exuding holiday joy and wearing a smile. The image reflected the excitement of their first Christmas as a family of three.
