Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's cheerful Christmas card seems to have rubbed the royal family the wrong way.
Though the card featured the first photo of their 6-month-old daughter Lilibet, the British brood was reportedly put off by the Americanized language the parents-of-two used.
"According to those good sources, they were rather confused and let me explain the reasons why," royal expert Neil Sean stated. "As we all know, Prince Harry was born a British Prince and there's nothing more sacred to our gracious Majesty the Queen than her Christian faith and this particular time of year, she holds it with great affection."
"In fact, it was one of the most favorite times of the year for Her Majesty and the late Duke of Edinburgh so you can imagine I'm suspecting her dismay at the Christmas greeting which was on the cards now," he continued, noting that the term "merry" didn't appear on their card. "I'm told this phrase 'Happy Holidays' is very much a Californian slang."
Added Sean, "Moving back to the picture what did senior royals allegedly think, well it’s interesting, isn’t it? Because it’s a very relaxed picture of seemingly a very happy family."
In the photo, which was taken by Alexi Lubomirkski, Harry, Meghan and son Archie, 2, all wore shirts and jeans, while baby Lili smiled in a white dress.
"Happy Holidays. 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," their card reads. "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."
Despite showing off their card to the public, the family didn't reveal how they celebrated the holiday. Meanwhile, the royals had to cancel their usual plans, though they did a hold a virtual gathering.
