The release of Meghan and Harry's new highly anticipated Christmas card “destroys the wall they've built”, a royal expert has claimed.
The card, featuring the happy couple with their children Archie and Lilibet, was released to the public to huge fanfare.
Royal expert Daniela Elser has said that the very open display by the couple makes "perfect sense".
Writing for news.com.au, she said: “The couple have made no secret of their deep-seated resentment for what have become the etched-in-stone demands on royal parents when it came to access to their progeny.
“As the weeks and months drifted by after Lili was born with nary a charming image of even a chubby little hand or a heart-melting tiny foot, it looked increasingly like we might never see her face in any sort of official image.
“Don’t lose sight of the fact here too that Harry and Meghan are officially civilians, therefore there is no expectation or requirement that they put out a card at all. That they continue to do so is entirely their own choice.
“It is incredibly hard here to draw any conclusion, but that they must know what 24-carat PR this photo of the four of them represents and the incredible power and potency of this image of them as a damn-near-perfect modern family.

"No matter what your views might be on Megxit or their decision to air all the royal family’s dirty laundry on TV or to write a memoir or get chickens or get into bed with corporate giant after corporate giant, what is undeniable is that their new vitamin D-dappled lives clearly suit them perfectly.”
The card shows the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with Lilibet and her big brother Archie posing for a lovely family portrait for the first time.
This is the first time Lilibet has been seen since she was born on June 4 this year at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California.
On their Archewell website, the card was posted with a message that read: “This year we welcomed out daughter, Lilibet, to the world.
“Archie made us a 'Mama and Papa' and Lili made us a family.”
