Meghan Markle’s son Archie looks ‘just like’ Prince Harry in new royal Christmas card

Meghan Markle's Christmas card 'on the way' says expert

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex released their first Christmas card since relocating to America earlier this year. The card shows a drawing of an image taken by Meghan’s mother Doria earlier this month.

The royal couple can be seen playing with Archie in the garden of their US home along with the pair’s dogs Pula and Guy.

Archie also appears to have been painted with red hair similar to his father’s.

Royal fans were quick to notice Prince Harry and his son’s matching hair colour.

One social media user pointed out on Twitter that Archie’s hair is “just like his dad”.

A third user posted: “Archie hair is RED and STRAIGHTER than Harry’s hair.”

In the Christmas card, one-year-old Archie is sat on his father’s lap as the Duchess looks at the pair of them.

As well as sharing the same hair colour is the card’s picture, Archie and Prince Harry also appear to be wearing similar clothes.

Archie can be seen wearing blue trousers similar to his father’s in the painted photograph.

The pair are also wearing what looks to be white tops, although Archie is styling a dark blue cardigan as well.

The Christmas card was released on Wednesday via Mayhew, a UK animal charity for which the Duchess is a patron.

The card read: “Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

A spokesperson for the Sussexes said: “The original photo of the family was taken at their home earlier this month by The Duchess’s mother.

“The small Christmas tree, including the homemade ornaments and other decorations, were selected by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays.”

Within the card, the Duchess wrote: “This year we, as a family, have made donations to several charities with you in mind.

“From a local California organisation that helps families transition out of homelessness, to two of our U.K. patronages: one that supports animal and community welfare, and the other, a memorial fund for a cherished friend that helps to educate children and fight poverty in Uganda, we have honoured their work on behalf of all of us.”

The Sussexes are believed to be spending Christmas with the Duchess’ mother.

The royal pair recently revealed they had signed a lucrative podcast deal with Spotify reportedly worth up to £30million.

The couple will produce and host their own shows as part of Archewell Audio.

It came after Meghan and Harry signed a multi-million-dollar deal with the video streaming giant Netflix.

Last year, the Sussexes released a black and white Christmas card which showed Archie sharing into the camera.

Behind him, Archie’s parents can be seen laughing while looking at their baby son.
