The wait is over!
Just two days before Christmas, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released their family Christmas card featuring the first photo of their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
In the photo, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are sitting in a doorframe while Archie, 2, sits on his dad’s lap and Lilibet looks adoringly at her mom as she’s held in mid-air. The family decided to go for a more casual look as the parents and Archie opted for jeans for their annual card.
The greeting also highlighted the multiple charities that they’ve donated to, all of which are meant to “honor and protect families.”
“Happy Holidays,” the card began. “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,” the message continued before listing some of the charities, which include Team Rubicon, Human First Coalition, Humanity Crew and Paid Leave For All.
The photo is the long-awaited reveal of baby Lilibet, named after Queen Elizabeth’s nickname among close family members. Her middle name is in dedication to Harry’s late mother Princess Diana. Lilibet is the queen’s 11th grandchild.
After welcoming Lilibet this summer in Santa Barbara, Calif., both parents took a few months off for parental leave, which prompted Meghan to advocate for paid parentalleave for all in an open letter to Congress.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
