Archie Mountbatten-Windsor stole the show in Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s 2021 Christmas card—with flaming red hair just like his father’s.
The two-year-old looks all grown up in blue jeans and a white shirt as he sits on Harry’s lap in the family portrait, taken by the couple’s wedding photographer, Alexi Lubomirski,
The image shows baby Lilibet for the first time and was taken over the summer, shortly after she was born on June 4.
U.K. political commentator Dominique Samuels wrote: « I cannot get over Archie’s hair.
« Say what you want about these two but this picture is so adorable! »
Writer Meecham Whitson Meriweather joked: « Archie better cherish that hair while he can. They look cute tho. »
Laura Payton wrote: « OMG Archie’s hair is making my day. »
Journalist Laura Hampson wrote: « Our first glimpse of Lilibet! Also Archie’s red hair may just be the cutest thing ever. »
Meghan and Harry included a message on their card, which 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. »
They added: « Wishing you a happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year, from our family to yours!
« As ever, Harry, Meghan, Archie & Lili. »
It’s not the first time Lubomirski has captured a special moment for the couple, after he took their engagement photo shoot and went on to be the official photographer during their wedding at Windsor Castle in May 2018.
After Lilibet was born, the couple’s press secretary said in a statement: « Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet.
« Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales. »
Meghan and Harry added: « On 4 June, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili. She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe. Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family. »
