Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have unveiled their very first Christmas card from the US, where they moved earlier this year.

Animal welfare charity Mayhew shared the adorable card on their official Twitter account, which shows the Duke and Duchess of Sussex playing outside with their one year old son Archie.

The digital sketch shows Meghan, 39, sitting crossed-legged on the grass, wearing a pair brown boots with blue jeans and a white shirt as she looks at her son and 36 year old husband.

Prince Harry, who recently said being a dad to Archie has "changed everything", can be seen smiling as he sits on the edge of a house wearing blue jeans while his little boy laughs alongside his father.
