The Christmas card was not shared through any official royal account. An unverified Twitter account shared the picture.

After the tweet royal fans started criticizing that the picture of Meghan has been photoshopped. The black and white image shows Harry and Meghan sitting by a Christmas tree smiling as the 7th-month-old looking into the camera in the front.

It is believed that copies of the image, taken by the couple’s friend Janina Gavankar, were emailed to friends and staff on Monday. The hard copies of the picture were sent to the family.
