As part of the royal tradition, Queen Elizabeth II, this year also made a profound Christmas Day speech for families across Britain. This year the Queen sent out Christmas message to millions in a pre-recorded video from Windsor Castle where she is seen seated next to photos of other royal household. Netizens were however quick to notice that the Queen’s Christmas photo on the desk has no mention of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prompting many to ask, ‘why’.

On Christmas Day visit @TheRoyalFamily at 3pm GMT to watch Her Majesty The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast. The first Christmas Broadcast was delivered by The Queen’s grandfather George V in 1932. Her father George VI (whose photograph is here next to Her Majesty) made his first broadcast in December 1937, following which it evolved into an important part of the Christmas Day celebrations for many in Britain and around the world. Each Broadcast carefully reflects current issues and concerns, and shares The Queen's reflections on what Christmas means to her and to many of her listeners. Photo ðŸ“· by PA
As for the Sussexes, Harry, Meghan and Baby Archie, they confirmed that they will be spending their Christmas in Canada. The trio also sent out their first-ever family Christmas cart with Baby Archie. The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, a charity that Markle and Harry spearhead, shared the couple's Christmas card starring baby Archie. The photo was shared on Twitter with the caption,
"Just sharing the sweetest Christmas Card from our President and Vice-President, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Very Merry Christmas, everyone!" the Sussexes wrote.
Earlier the Cambridge house also released a Christmas cart with Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1. The Cambridges’ card, which found a place on the Queen’s desk featured the family of five in one of their most candid and casual photos yet as they pose on a vintage motorcycle sidecar.
