The Duke and Duchess of Sussex - who now live in California with their two children - wished everyone a "happy holiday season".

The seasonal greeting card shows them applauding side-by-side and beaming with smiles at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany, back in September.

Meghan is pictured in a green top as she smiles with Harry, styled in a black shirt and suit. The picture is bordered in green banners, matching the Duchess' outfit.

The card is issued on behalf of their business Archewell Productions and their charitable arm the Archewell Foundation.

Christmas images used to decorate official festive cards are regularly released by senior members of the royal family with the cards sent to friends, family and colleagues. Harry and Meghan have maintained this tradition as they continue their non-working Royal life in the US.

"Thanks for all the support in 2023!"

A digital version of the card features some of the highlights of Meghan and Harry's past year. It also features a link to the Archewell Foundation's 'impact report'.

Last year's card featured a monochrome shot of the couple at the Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Awards Gala in New York City.

It comes after the King and Queen, and the Prince and Princess of Wales released their cards for this year.

The palace released the royals' Christmas Card images last Saturday night, showing William and Kate's family arranged around a chair and all wearing white shirts.
