Archie dubbed 'cutest little redhead' as Meghan and Harry fans swoon over 'loving family'


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have this week released a photo of them and their young children – two-year-old Archie and baby Lilibet. Taken at the family’s California home in the summer, it has sparked all sorts of reactions across the globe. One element that particularly grabbed royal fans’ attention is the boy’s bright red hair, which many have said to find incredibly cute.

US journalist Erica Simon, sharing the family portrait on her Twitter profile, said: “OMG! Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s holiday photo is everything.

“Archie is the cutest little redhead and Lili is lovely like her mama.”

Thousands of people like the tweet, and hundreds joined the conversation, with one user calling the image “the photo of the year”.

Another tweet, by Pagan Trelawney, read: “Archie’s dark red curls are just too cute for words!”

Lesley Abravanel claimed: “Little Archie and his red hair are especially precious.”

And Danielle C. Belton wrote: “I can’t get over Archie’s curly red hair and Lili’s smile.”

The Sussexes’ digital holiday card, it seems, was all about their kids. With Archie sitting on Harry’s lap and Meghan lifting Lilibet in the air, the couple could not look any happier.

Their festive message, alongside the picture, read: “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.”

A user calling themselves CultureVulture added: “Freedom and happiness looks good on them!”

Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, also used their holiday card as a chance to list the organisations that benefited from their donations throughout the last year.

They wrote: “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 paid parental leave.”

And while Archie’s red hair sent uncountable fans into a frenzy, the holiday card also gave them something they have been longing for throughout the last half a year.

Six months after Prince Harry and Meghan brought Lili to the world, they finally showed her face.

The one in charge of capturing the special moment was photographer Alexi Lubomirski, who claimed it had been an “honour” and “privilege” to once again work with the Sussexes, saying: “This is one of those rare and special projects, that one is fortunate enough to be a part of.”
