Earlier this week, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry unveiled their 2022 vacation plans.
And since almost everything the couple does becomes a source of controversy, the Sussexes' innocent Christmas greeting has attracted a barrage of complaints from the internet's tiniest naysayers.
Primarily, commentators were upset that Harry and Meghan's children were not featured on the card.
This was a particular complaint for several reasons.
For starters, the card was issued from Harry and Meghan's offices in Archewell and had a very corporate feel to it.
So including children would be a bit wrong.
In addition, Harry and Meghan have worked very hard to shield their children from the media and allow them to grow up with some privacy.
Crusading for the right to privacy for all public figures became one of Harry's greatest passions.
In fact, Harry recently won a lawsuit against the Daily Mail accusing the outlet of phone hacking and other unethical practices.
So yeah, it would be weird for the Sussexes to make such a big deal about privacy and then go against everything they stand for just for a Christmas card.
With a secret trip to Costa Rica last week, the Duke and Duchess underlined the fact that their privacy and their family are more important to them than their public image.
In the past, the couple has been criticized for traveling too often without the children.
(As we said before, people will find a reason to complain about literally any Harry and Meghan action.)
So if they cared what the haters thought of them, maybe they'd make a big deal about taking their kids on a little pre-Christmas vacation.
Instead, the route was not discovered until the Sussexes returned home and Page Six escaped article revealed that the couple spent a week exploring Guanacaste and Zapotal.
As for how the Sussexes plan to celebrate the holidays, we don't have many specifics, but we do know that at least one Christmas card will No comes true for Prince Archie.
During a recent interview with filmmaker Misan Harriman, Meghan revealed her son's new interest in photography – a hobby that required a very expensive gift.
“Misan was showing him how to take pictures the last time he was with us, and I bought Archie a camera and he said, 'But it's not a Leica like Misan,'” Meghan said with a laugh.
“I said, 'You're not getting a Leica! Not even for Christmas,” the duchess added, before joking to Harriman:
“So thanks for the overall inspiration.
Yes, even princes don't get everything they want for Christmas!
Don't be afraid to explain this to your own children if they are disappointed with this year's haul!
