Netizens are split over whose choice is better.
Some fell in love with the little princes, rocking it.

Others praised the classy choice of the Sussexes, who are going to celebrate Christmas as a family for the first time this year.
This is a very beautiful, romantic, endearing, and intimate photo of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I can see why they are using this wonderful for their Christmas cards on their 1st holiday together as a married couple.— Erikk_the_Dane™ (@Erikk_the_Dane2) 14 декабря 2018 г.
However, there were also those who decided to express their discontent with Meghan.
Cambridge’s are gorgeous. Rude #meghanmarkle has her backside turned to the camera while dim #princeharry looks at his bleak future. Please get rid of them #duchessofsusSEX and more of #DuchessofCambridge in 2019 #megxit #sohohousemeg— msbrattyy (@msbrattyy) 14 декабря 2018 г.
Traditionally, the royals would spend the holiday together at Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham residence in England. However, reports earlier this month suggested that William and Kate might break the custom and join the Middletons for the celebration amid rumours about the rift between Kate and Meghan.
