The royal family’s holiday cards are one thing that they do really well every year. Most summers, Prince William and Kate Middleton are known for taking vacations to beautiful destinations, which also serve as the backdrop for their Christmas cards the following holiday season. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Christmas cards are absolutely gorgeous. The pair made headlines in December 2021 when they released their current card, which was the first to feature their daughter.
Every holiday season, fans of the royal family and individuals from all around the world are quite happy because they know they will get to see some beautiful cards from the family. Some body language specialists have recently noted out the remarkable parallels between Meghan and her late mother, Princess Diana, indicating that some have been paying extra close attention to the cards.
Diana was regarded for being a ray of sunshine who made it a point to show her children how much she admired and loved them. Many old images illustrate how much William and Harry meant to Diana as she accompanied them on royal outings and participated in everyday activities with them.
Harry and Meghan were pictured with their two children, Archie and Lilibet, on the Sussex family Christmas card dated December 2021. Meghan smiled adoringly at Lilibet as she raised her high in the air. People couldn’t help but compare Meghan’s position to Diana’s from an old photograph of the late princess cradling her eldest baby in the 1980s, demonstrating that Meghan is a carbon clone of Diana.
Meghan is frequently likened to Diana, Princess of Wales, as a member of the royal family. According to The List, the Duchess of Sussex was previously linked to Diana during her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, when admirers compared it to Diana’s incredibly vulnerable and eye-opening tell-all with BBC journalist Martin Bashir in 1995.
In a 1995 interview, the Princess of Wales discussed her mental health issues and what ultimately led to her divorce from Prince Charles. Similarly, during her 2021 interview, Meghan discussed troubles she had been having with the royal family as well as how people regarded and treated her, according to The List.
Harry and Meghan presented their holiday card a few days before Christmas 2021, showcasing their 2-year-old son Archie and 6-month-old daughter Lilibet. Meghan proudly held Lilibet up in the air while the baby smiled down at her, and the family looked happy and lovely together. Archie was also pictured sitting on his father’s knee, both of them smiling broadly.
According to Express, this was Meghan and Harry’s fourth holiday card as a couple since their wedding in 2018. In 2019, they spent Christmas in Los Angeles, California, with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent their first Christmas as non-working royals at their property in Montecito the following year.
Fans and body language experts quickly noticed parallels between Harry and Meghan’s recent Christmas photo and one of Diana taken at Kensington Palace on Feb. 1, 1983, according to Express. Diana is seen holding William as an 8-month-old baby high in the air in one photo, almost identically to how Meghan was holding Lilibet.
Judi James, a body language specialist, discussed the similarities between Meghan and Diana. “Meghan’s Christmas card pose with daughter Lilibet has such powerful echoes from the past, and it’s not just in the manner The Queen’s pet name has been selected for the infant,” she remarked. “The body language Meghan is using with her infant now is practically a carbon replica of a stance Diana adopted with her own kid many years ago.”
“With this stance, both ladies establish themselves as loving, doting moms, and both enable their babies to be viewed in a playful mood as they laugh and grin down at them,” James continued. The love and delight on both women’s faces is palpable, and their children’s facial expressions reflect it.”
Meghan leaned her head back onto Harry’s chest as she held Lilibet, while Diana leaned her head back against a cushion as she held William, according to the body language expert.
“Lifting a youngster like this causes exciting sensations that turn into fun when the child looks down and sees its mother’s reassuring and loving grin,” James explained. “It draws the child’s attention to the mother, resulting in mutual, echoing smiles and laughter like this.”
