His grandmother is the head of the Church of England and a defender of the faith, but Prince Harry chose not to include the word “Christmas” in a “family holiday card” he and Meghan Markle released today – the card shows the first publicly shared photo of their daughter Lillipet.
In the photo, Lillipet, now six months old, holds her smiling mother high, while Harry and her two-year-old brother Archie look on.
The photo was taken by Alexei Lubomirsky, who photographed the couple before, and took pictures of their engagement and wedding day.
The new photo also marks the first time Archie’s face has been photographed forward in a year, and the new photo shows that his father’s hair is clearly red.
The Sussex family said they have donated to several charities including Team Rubicon, whose photo was shared on their website, to celebrate the season, but they have specifically avoided using the word Christmas.
The letter read: “This year we welcomed our daughter Lillipet into the world. Archie has made us ‘mama and papa’ and Lily has made us family. As we look to 2022, we have made donations on your behalf to the many organizations that honor and protect families – from those relocated from Afghanistan To American families in need of paid parental leave.”
As cool as the photo is, the omission of the word “Christmas” is likely to raise eyebrows among traditionalists, especially given that Meghan believes she believes in God.
In the biography of the seduction of the couple Searching for freedomA source, for whom Meghan organized the press secretary’s briefing on her behalf, said: “Her relationship with God and her church is very important to her. This is something most people don’t know about her. She plays a central role in her life as an individual and as a woman.”
The book added: She was gathering the actors and crew suit To circle the prayer before starting work. Her calls were not centered around a specific theology. Instead, she wanted to bring everyone together during moments of transition or difficulty.”
