Prince Harry gives touching nod to Princess Diana in heartwarming Christmas card

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released their 2021 Christmas card, featuring an adorable family snap of the couple with their children, Archie, two, and six month old Lilibet.

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, can be seen beaming as they hold their son and daughter in the sweet festive snap.

The couple are both dressed in matching denim jeans, with Meghan wearing a black high-neck jumper and her brunette locks styled in loose waves.

Harry is pictured in a casual blue shirt with a beaded bracelet worn on his wrist, which has became a staple to the dad of three's look over the years.

The Duke of Sussex got the bracelet during a trip to Africa shortly after his mother, Princess Diana, passed away.

Princess Diana famously highlighted many issues in Africa, including landmines, and Prince Harry has continued to champion the same causes his mother cared about.

Diana famously walked through an area being cleared of explosives in Huambo in 1997, and three years ago Harry visited the same location and recreated the photograph that was taken of his mother.

In a past interview, Harry revealed he first visited Africa after his mother died, saying: "I first came [to Africa] in 1997, straight after my mum died.

"My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags — we were going to Africa to get away from it all."

He also took Meghan on a romantic trip to Botswana ahead of their engagement in 2017, and the couple then embarked on a tour of Africa during their time as senior royals, where they visited Huambo Orthopaedic Centre which has now been renamed after Princess Diana.

Harry and Meghan unveiled their adorable Christmas card on Thursday 23 December, and it shows the couple holding their two children, Archie, two, and six month old Lilibet.

The festive snap marks the first public photograph of Lilibet, who can be seen in Meghan's arms while wearing a white dress.

Fans gushed over the sweet snap online, all the while complimenting Archie's "incredible" red hair, just like his father's.

The shot was captured by Harry and Meghan's wedding photographer, Alexi Lubomirski.

The Sussexes' Christmas card reads: "Happy Holidays. 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 honour and protect families – from those being relocated from Afghanistan, to American families in need of paid parental leave: Team Rubicon, Welcome.US, Human First Coalition, Humanity Crew & Paid Leave For All, PL+US, Marshall Plan for Moms.

"Wishing you a happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year, from our family to yours! As ever, Harry, Meghan, Archie & Lili."
