Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released their Christmas card which didn’t include their two children.
The Christmas card was delivered to Archewell subscribers via email wishing everyone a joyful holiday season.
“Wishing you a joyful holiday season,” the card read.
“From our family to yours, and on behalf of our teams at The Archewell Foundation, Archewell Audio, and Archwell Productions, we wish you health, peace, and a very happy new year!”
However, many pointed out that the card was missing a photo of their children – Archie, 3, and daughter, Lilibet, 1.
“I wonder why, as it’s from their family to yours that 2 of their immediate family (children) are missing from the card,” someone wrote.
“Where are the children?” another asked.
On the other hand, many said that the Christmas card is the Sussexes business one and they may release another with Archie and Lilibet.
“This looks to be an official business holiday card not their official family holiday card,” someone pointed out.
“That’s their business holiday card. No doubt they’ll have a family card as well. It’s a very common practice,” another wrote.
It is believed that Archie and Lilibet were left off the card because of their “basic right to privacy”.
Meghan previously spoke about her children’s privacy in the 2021 tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey about how “comfortable” she is or isn’t sharing photos of her children.
“If you’re at work and you have a photograph of your child on your desk, and your co-worker says, ‘Oh, my gosh, your kid’s so cute. That’s fantastic! Can I see your phone so I can see all the pictures of your child?’ You go, ‘No. This is the picture I’m comfortable sharing with you’,” she said.
“And then if they double down and say, ‘No, but you already showed me that one. So you have to show me everything. You know what, I’m just gonna hire someone to sit in front of your house, or hide in the bushes and take pictures into your backyard, because you’ve lost your right to privacy … because you shared one image with me’.”
She also previously mentioned how she didn’t want her children to be the subject of racial slurs which she claims were used by the British media.
“Why would I give the very people that are calling my children the N-word a photo of my child before I can share it with the people that love my child?” Meghan told the Cut back in August.
