Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's official holiday thank-you card was recently revealed by royal correspondence collector @gertsreplies, who shared a photo of the Duke and Duchess's Christmas reply via Instagram.

For the card, the Sussexes chose a throwback photo of the pair from their 2018 royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand. In the image, Meghan holds an umbrella over her and her husband as Harry makes a speech during a downpour about the prioritisation of mental health.

The interior message reportedly reads, 'Thank you for your thoughtful message. We appreciate your kind words and the time you have taken to write to us on this special occasion. Sending you our warmest wishes. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.'

Though the Sussexes have since stepped down from their roles as senior working royals; relocated to Montecito, California; and created a new U.S.-based communications team, the couple still responds to messages and letters via Prince Charles's Clarence House, which handles royal family fan mail.

Over the holidays, Harry and Meghan took a more artistic approach to their annual public Christmas card. Rather than sharing a traditional photograph of their family, they chose to feature an illustrated re-creation of a candid snapshot, which was originally taken at their home by Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland. The photo included the couple; their young son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor; and their two beloved dogs, Guy and Pula.
