According to Royal reporter, Omid Scobie, the candid photo was taken by the Duchess’ good friend and actress Janina Gavankar, and was turned into a GIF so people could see twinkling glitter. It was also sent to all recipients in an e-card form in order to be more environmentally friendly.
The Royal family has been taking Christmas photos since the beginning of the 20th century, so Meghan and Harry’s card is hardly revolutionary. That being said, this modern greeting signifies a new era for the royal family. After all, this is the first time a greeting’s been sent in GIF form.
