In the card, the couple write: “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.
“As we look forward to 2022, we have made donations on your behalf to several organizations that honor and protect families – from those being relocated from Afghanistan to American families in need of parental leave.”
The card was given to the charity Team Rubicon, which shared it on social media today.
It’s the fourth card Meghan and Harry have released since tying the knot it 2018.
The first was a black and white snap from their wedding day, showing the newlyweds watching the firework display at their private evening reception.
In 2019, their first year as parents, they shared an adorable snap of them sitting in front of a tree while baby Archie crawled towards the camera.
Last year, their first Christmas after quitting the royal family, showed the trio and their dogs playing in front of a play house in the garden of their American home.
