The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their first official photograph as a family of four in celebration of the Christmas holidays.

In a newly-released image, which was taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski, Harry and Meghan can be seen posing alongside their two-year-old son Archie and six-month-old daughter Lilibet. It is the first time the world has been treated to a photo of their youngest.

Sharing the image to his personal Instagram account, Lubomirski – who took Harry and Meghan's engagement photos, as well as their wedding pictures – said it was a "delightful honour" to share these new images of the family.

"This is one of those rare and special projects, that one is fortunate enough to be a part of," he wrote. "To be able to continue the story of this family whom I first photographed as an engaged couple, then on the day of their wedding, as a married couple and now seeing their love manifest into two beautiful children, has been a delightful honour."

"This day with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was one such joyous experience, and one that I feel extremely privileged to have been invited to capture," he added.

The image was also released by Harry and Meghan personally as a Christmas card which was sent along to family and friends, along with a donation to various organisations that "honour and protect families," including Team Rubicon and Paid Leave for All.

The card wrote: "This year, 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, to the world. Archie made us a ‘Mama’ and a ‘Papa,’ and Lili made us a family."

Meghan gave birth to Lilibet Diana – who was named after the Queen and Harry's late mother Princess Diana – this June in California, where the couple is now living.

"She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe," the couple said at the time.
