Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just proved to the entire world that they are standing by their decision to keep their son’s life as private as possible.

This week, the royal couple released thank you cards to those who sent them well-wishes following Archie’s christening. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son was christened at Queen Elizabeth’s private chapel in Windsor.

But instead of including a photo of their 3-month-old son in the thank you card, Prince Harry and Markle opted to include their picture instead. In the snap, Prince Harry and Markle are on their way to a formal event. Markle is still pregnant with Archie in the photograph.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overwhelmed by all the incredibly kind cards and letters they have received on the occasion of Archie’s christening, and are so touched that you took the trouble to write as you did. It really was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated by Their Royal Highnesses who send you their very best wishes,” the note in the card reads.

Even though the thank you card actually comes from the royal couple, fans were still hoping to catch a glimpse of Archie in the note. Several years ago, Prince William and Kate Middleton sent out thank you cards to those who congratulated them on the arrival of their firstborn, Prince George.

In the royal couple’s thank you card was a note a photo of the two of them outside St. Mary’s Hospital’s Lindo Wing. In the snap, Middleton is also carrying Prince George in her arms.

And after Prince Louis was christened last year, the Cambridges once again sent out thank you cards to those who congratulated the toddler. The card featured a note from the Cambridges and a photo of Middleton carrying Prince Louis.

As such, it slightly came as a surprise to royal fans to only see Prince Harry and Markle in Archie’s christening thank you cards.
