Royal Family fans have been eagerly awaiting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Christmas card, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed they have yet to "finalise plans" for it.
Meghan, 38, and her husband Harry, 35, are currently taking a six-week break from their royal duties, but it's become unclear whether they will release a card for the festive season.
That said, fans of the couple are desperately hoping for one to come out soon as they look forward to seeing baby Archie sitting alongside the couple.
However, when asked when the royal card would be shared with the public, a spokesperson for the family told Mirror Online: "We haven't finalised plans yet."

Last year, the royal couple shared a photo of the front of their card on Instagram on 14 December, which showed a black and white snap of the pair as they watched fireworks at their wedding reception.
Sharing the stunning snap with their 1.9million Twitter followers last year, Kensington Palace wrote: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May.
"The photograph, which features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card, was taken by photographer Chris Allerton."
It comes as rumours have been circulating around whether the Duke and Duchess will go against yet another royal tradition by including Meghan's mum Doria Ragland, 63, in the photo.
A source has told E! News that the couple plan to include a "selection of family photographs" taken with their seven-month-old son, and a few might include Meghan’s mother.
The insider said: "Harry and Meghan are said to want [to] ensure that some of their Christmas card images reflect that Doria is very much part of their family and of Archie's upbringing.
"It is a break with protocol from traditional royal Christmas cards, which haven't historically included grandparents.
"For instance, Kate's parents — Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton — have never appeared on any of their Christmas card images."
Since hearing the news, fans have taken to Twitter to share their opinions on the card as one person wrote: "Do you think our Duchess is going to gift us with an artsy Christmas card of the three of them? #MeghanMarkle #duchessofsussex #WeLoveYouMeghan #HarryandMeghan #princeharry #sussexsquad".
Another said: "I feel like we haven’t seen the KP Christmas card because they are waiting for H&M to drop so they can size it up/copy then post W&K".
And a third tweeted: "I am so looking forward to seeing their Christmas card. Hopefully tomorrow! Fingers crossed". [sic]
This will be Meghan and Harry's first Christmas together with their baby son Archie. It is likely to be a more relaxed affair than the previous two years which the couple have spent at Sandringham with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.

The trio will be spending the festive day with Meghan’s mother at their home of Frogmore cottage.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month.
"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.
"For security reasons, we will not be providing further details on their schedule at this time."
