Meghan Markle and Prince Harry released a family holiday card ahead of their first American Christmas in Montecito, California.

The card, which is an illustration of a photo taken by Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, was released through Mayhew, Meghan's animal welfare organization patronage in the U.K.

Starring front and center is the couple's 19-month-old son Archie (who has clearly inherited dad Harry's red hair!) and their two adorable dogs, Pula and Guy.

"Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year," the card states.
