Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s kids, Archie and Lilibet, missing from 2023 holiday card

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have unveiled their 2023 holiday card and the image they used doesn’t include Prince Archie or Princess Lilibet.

The virtual greeting shared on behalf of their Archewell organization features a photo of the couple from the closing ceremony of the 2023 Invictus Games in September.

Harry, 39, and Meghan, 42, looked happy cheering for the U.S. team’s entrance at the sporting event which was held in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Harry wore a black shirt and black jacket while Meghan stunned in a green strapless dress.

“We wish you a very happy holiday season. Thanks for all the support in 2023!” the card reads. It also includes a link to the couple’s annual Archewell Foundation impact report, which features a video highlighting some of their philanthropic work throughout the past year.

Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex selected a black-and-white photo of themselves attending the Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award Gala in New York City for their seasonal greeting.

“Wishing you a joyful holiday season,” the 2022 card said. “From our family to yours, and on behalf of our teams at The Archewell Foundation, Archewell Audio, and Archewell Productions, we wish you health, peace, and a very happy new year.”

The charming snap, taken by their wedding photographer Alexi Lubomirski, showed Harry holding Archie, while Meghan held up a smiling Lili.

Their 2020 card featured a watercolor illustration of Archie and their two dogs, Pula and Guy.

The previous year, the duo shared their first holiday card as a family of three with Archie crawling toward the camera as his parents looked on delightedly.

Archie made it on to the couple’s 2019 card.

Harry’s elder brother, Prince William, released his family’s Christmas card earlier this week.

The black-and-white photo which featured Kate Middleton and their children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, came under fire for its apparent Photoshop fail with Louis missing a finger.

The couple were reportedly “embarrassed” that the public believes their family’s Christmas card was Photoshopped.

A source claimed to Us Weekly that the Prince and Princess of Wales, both 41, “were as shocked as everyone else” to see that their youngest son Prince Louis’ middle finger was missing from the holiday snap.

Earlier this week, Page Six reported exclusively that during this holiday season, Harry and Meghan are attempting to offer an olive branch to Harry’s father, King Charles.

The father-son relationship has been especially tense this year following the publication of Harry’s bombshell memoir “Spare” — in which he revealed unflattering stories about the royal family.

To make matters worse, Charles was named as one of the racist royals in the Dutch version of Omid Scobie’s new book, “Endgame,” alongside Harry’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
