His grandmother is the head of the Church of England and has the title Defender of the Faith, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose not to include the word “Christmas” in a “family holiday card” released today that displays a public image of their daughter Lilibet for the first time.
In the photo, Lilibet, now six months old, is carried aloft by her smiling mother, while Harry and brother Archie, 2, look forward.
The photo was taken by Alexi Lubomirski, who has previously photographed the couple, capturing both their engagement and wedding day.
The new photo also represents the first time Archie has been photographed face-forward in a year, and the new photo clearly shows he has his father’s red hair.
The Sussexes said they have donated to a number of charities including Team Rubicon, on whose website an image was shared, to mark the season, but notably to avoid using the word Christmas.
The message said: “This year we welcome our daughter, Lilibet, to the world. Archie made us ‘Mama and Papa’ and Lili made us a family. We look forward to having donations on your behalf by 2022 to a number of organizations that honor and protect families — from those displaced from Afghanistan to American families in need of paid leave. . ”
As adorable as the picture, the omission of the word “Christmas” is likely to raise eyebrows among traditionalists, especially since Meghan is said to believe in God.
In the couple’s flattering bio Freedom Search, which Meghan organized for the authors to have her press secretary brief on her behalf, a source said: “Her relationship with God and with the church is extremely important. important to her. That’s what most people don’t know about her. It plays a central role in her life, as an individual, as a woman.”
The book added: “She once assembled the cast and crew Suit for a round of prayer before starting work. Her appeals on set were never about a specific theology. Instead, she wants to bring people together during transitional or difficult times.”
