The post has thus far amassed more than 50,000 likes as royal fans shared their own seasons greetings with the couple.

The Duke and Duchess are currently on a six-week break from royal duties, spending Archie’s first Christmas in Canada where they are expected to remain until the New Year.

They decided to snub the Queens invitation to Sandringham in favour of staying abroad.

It’s thought the royal couple are deliberately avoiding the US and trying to stay away from press.

Meghan lived in Toronto for seven years while filming Suits, and some of her best friends still live in the country.
