The lucky selection of fans who received the thank you cards were treated to a lovely picture of the royals. For Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, it was an adorable shot of the parents-to-be standing under an umbrella together while Harry gave a speech on their Oceanic tour last autumn.

At the back of the card, the couple wrote a special messaging which read: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex thank you for the very kind message you sent for Christmas. This was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated by Their Royal Highnesses who send their best wishes for Christmas, and for the New Year.’

One recipient took to Instagram to share her excitement about the thank you card, posting a picture of the card. ‘Lovely reply from TRH the Duke and Duchess of Sussex thanking me for sending my Christmas and New year wishes,’ she wrote in the caption.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decided to go for a more polished family photo with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and their youngest Prince Louis. They all look incredibly cute in the shot which appears to be taken at Prince Louis’s christening back in July.

Similar to Harry and Meghan’s, the back of the couple’s card read: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis thank you for your very kind Christmas message. ‘Their Royal Highnesses send you their very best wishes for Christmas and for the New Year.’
