Just before Christmas, we all got a glimpse at the annual Royal Christmas cards and of course, fans were particularly excited for Meghan and Harry to share theirs, especially given it was baby Archie's first Christmas.
But it seems that since releasing their highly-anticipated card, they have been put on blast by fans who are claiming it has been photoshopped. Now, the woman behind the snap has spoken out and her response is truly shocking.
Keep scrolling to take a look...
The public has had a long relationship with Prince Harry.Being born into the royal family meant he had the spotlight on him pretty much from his birth, in September 1984.
We've seen Harry go through a lot.His mother, Princess Diana, died tragically in a car accident in 1997 when Harry was just twelve years old.
Growing up in the spotlight can't have been easy.But most agree that Harry has handled it with grace and dignity (a few slight scandals aside). It's clear that he has a heart of gold.
Harry has had a couple of public relationships during his lifetime.But in 2016, he met actress, Meghan Markle, and things seemed to change for him. He was blown away by the U.S. television star.
Markle was best known for her role in Suits.In the U.S. drama, Markle plays a brilliant paralegal named Rachel Zane. Before her high-profile relationship with Harry, this was how the vast majority of the public knew her.
Though some claim that she was always going to be something a little "more" than an actress.This image of the star in her youth, posing for a tourist snap outside her future home, Buckingham Palace, was shared online when Harry and Meghan got together.
The pair met in 2016.They were set up by mutual friends, who thought that the 2 might be a good match. They went public with their relationship in 2017, with one of their first appearances at the Toronto Invictus Games.
The public were struck by the couple's natural chemistry.Whenever they were spotted together, they looked the living image of love's young dream, unable to stop catching each other's eyes and grinning.
And the couple were clearly serious about one another.They announced their engagement in November 2017 in a video that can only be described as "adorable."
As with royal tradition, the pair wed at Westminster Abbey.The wedding took place on May 19th, 2018, and it was one of the most-watched television events of all time.
As you'd expect, it was filled with adorable moments.One that particularly captured the internet's attention was the moment that Harry lifted Meghan's veil. Many thought that the look between the 2 was super romantic.
The wedding was the perfect television event.It combined British royalty with a whole host of American celebrities. At what other event would you find Oprah, Tom Hardy, the Beckhams, and Princess Eugenie?
Twitter had some excellent reactions to the big day.

So of course, the public was thrilled by the news that the royal couple were expecting their first baby together.
Their son was born on May 6th of 2019.He was given the somewhat controversial name of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, which many thought was not traditional enough for a member of the Royal Family.
But he was as cute as the world had hoped he would be.
There was one thing that many noticed.The way that both parents (although Meghan, in particular) looked at their newborn was enough to warm the coldest of hearts.
Although she wasn't alone.
Sadly, however, it's rare we get a glimpse at baby Archie.For the most part, Meghan and Harry try to keep him away from the cameras. In fact, the recent media firestorm has left people concerned for Meghan and Harry's wellbeing - find out more at the end.
Just before Christmas fans were treated to an all-new snap of baby Archie.
They've already been breaking royal tradition for Christmas this year...
"Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland. This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen," a spokesperson told E!.
Ahead of the festivities, the couple shared their much anticipated Christmas card with fans.
