This card is absolutely adorable. Archie’s getting so big! (And looks like he’s got Harry’s red hair.) Plus the doggies! The Sussexes released it via Mayhew, an animal welfare charity of which Meghan is patron, as you can see from their tweet about it:
We’re thrilled to receive wonderful Christmas wishes from our Patron, The Duchess of Sussex, who also made a personal donation, helping dogs, cats and our community. From all of us at Mayhew, thank you and Merry Christmas.

Omid Scobie reports on the other holiday donations they’ve made this year, excellent causes all:
As a family, the Sussexes have also made donations to the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund (which works to fight poverty in Uganda through education) and Transition House, a non-profit in Santa Barbara helping families transitioning out of homelessness (and those facing it)

“The original photo of the family was taken at their home earlier this month by The Duchess’s mother,” a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said. “The small Christmas tree, including the homemade ornaments and other decorations, were selected by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays.”
Everything about that is extremely cute — can’t you just picture it? (I love the idea of being able to replant your Christmas tree; my aunt and uncle used to have a pine tree in a container that lived in their yard and got dragged into the living room every year and I’ve long wished to be that on top of it, but it’s become abundantly clear that’s never going to happen.) Merry (almost) Christmas, everyone!
