It’s been six months since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their baby girl, Lilibet Diana, into the world. And while they have talked about the little royal here and there, they haven’t yet given her public debut—well, not until now.
On 23 December, the couple decided to release the first-ever picture of Lilibet in their official Christmas card.
Harry and Meghan’s children
Royal fans must be jumping up and down with glee, because yes this is not a false alarm. The couple just released their latest family portrait, which was on their Christmas card, and it features both Archie and Lilibet. The four of them are seen laughing while Meghan holds little Lilibet up in the air.
While this is the first time the public is getting a glance of Lilibet, who was born in 4 June 2021, it is also the first time that they’re seeing Archie in a really long time. The now two-year-old has definitely grown up and it looks like he’s even inherited the blazing red hair of his father!
The Christmas card
According to People Magazine, the photo was taken by Alexi Lubomirski at the couple’s home in California. The Christmas card, however, was first shared by an organisation called Rubicon on their website, after they had received it from the couple themselves. The card read:
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.
