Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been urged by Royal family members to return from abroad to spend Christmas in the UK, as Prince Philip spends a fourth night in hospital.
The couple have missed the Queen’s pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace and they will not be present for the traditional royal family gathering at the monarch’s private Sandringham estate on Christmas Day.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew with their eight-month-old son to Canada last month and have been keeping a low profile. But this evening a family Christmas card with Archie’s adorable face staring down the camera lens, was revealed.
Some Royals have insisted the couple should break their six-week long visit and return, after Prince Philip spent a fourth night in hospital.

The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust shared this adorable Christmas card Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie
One family member, told The Sun: ‘Even before the Duke became ill, many were at a loss as to why Harry and Meghan would miss what could be one of the last family Christmases with the Queen and Philip.
‘They are absolutely entitled to a proper break and privacy, but they’ve had six weeks off.
‘What about some lovely family photos and memories with baby Archie?
‘Many of the family were very keen to see him over Christmas, but were told they couldn’t as they were abroad.
‘There is a feeling they are being inconsiderate and selfish, given the Queen and Philip’s advancing age.’
The Mail understands the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be staying in Canada until the New Year.
