The original photo was taken at home earlier this month by Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, a spokesperson for the Sussexes revealed. "The small Christmas tree, including the homemade ornaments and other decorations, were selected by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays,” the rep added.

In addition to sharing their their 2020 Christmas card, the couple also made a personal donation to Mayhew, an animal-focused charity based in the U.K., to support their work throughout local communities and overseas.

Meghan wrote in their family card, "This year we, as a family, have made donations to several charities with you in mind. From a local California organisation that helps families transition out of homelessness, to two of our U.K. patronages: one that supports animal and community welfare, and the other, a memorial fund for a cherished friend that helps to educate children and fight poverty in Uganda, we have honoured their work on behalf of all of us.”

The Sussexes' holiday portrait follows the release of other Christmas cards shared by members of the royal family, including one from Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis; as well as a floral greeting from Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla.
