One’s bumpy year: The Queen uses her Christmas message to acknowledge a turbulent for the royals but there’s no photo of Harry and Meghan on her desk like last year … and definitely no Andrew!)

(The Queen

will reflect on the ‘bumpy’ year endured by both theRoyal Familyand the nation in her Christmas broadcast today.

Addressing a turbulent months in which Prince Andrewwas forced to step down from public duties, she will say ‘small steps’ can overcome difficulties and division.

Her annual broadcast will be directed mainly at national issues in a year dominated byBrexitand a general election. But royal sources said it would also cover problems in her own family.

Prince Philip faced a police probe over a car crash, Prince Harryacknowledged tensions in his relationship with his elder brother William, and Harry’s wife Meghan admitted she was struggling with her new life as a royal .

But the biggest ‘bump’ faced by the Royal Family was the fallout from the Duke of York’s disastrous Newsnight interview about his relationship with convicted paedophile

Jeffrey Epstein.

In a photograph of her speech, there was no picture of Prince Harry andMeghanon her desk like last year – when she had two in the shot – and also no sign of Prince Andrew.

Andrew, (****************************************************************************, is expected to watch his mother’s televised broadcast to the nation with the rest of the family at Sandringham.

She will say: ‘Small steps taken in faith and in hope can overcome long-held differences and deep-seated divisions to bring harmony and understanding.

‘The path, of course, is not always smooth, and may at times this year have felt quite bumpy, but small steps can make a world of difference.’

Andrew stepped back from public life following November’s ‘car crash’ BBC interview in which he attempted to explain his friendship with Epstein. He repeatedly denied claims that he had sex with one of the disgraced financier’s victims, Virginia Roberts, when she was just 24. Miss Roberts then accused him of lying. The Queen’s second son also faced calls to speak to the FBI about his relationship with Epstein, who was found dead in his prison cell in August awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.

She dubbed an ‘annus horribilis’ in a speech to mark the (th anniversary of her accession.

(********************** Was Meghan Markle’s face PHOTOSHOPPED onto Christmas e-card? Experts say Duchess of Sussex’s face appears weirdly in focus in Archie snap while Prince Harry is blurry

(

TheDuchess of Sussex‘s face has been Photoshopped onto the family’sChristmascard, it was claimed today.

Meghan’s face appears significantly more in focus than that of (Prince Harryin the picture, despite them both being roughly the same distance behind Archie.

Social media was abuzz overnight with people discussing whether the photo had been edited, with one saying: ‘Check out Meghan’s face, it is Photoshopped. Her face is clear and everything else is blurred. Archie’s is also photo shopped. ‘

Another tweeted:’ This is quite possibly the worst Photoshopped picture I have ever seen. And again with the black and white. ‘

The black and white festive image shows Harry and Meghan sitting by a Christmas tree smiling as the seven-month-old gazes into the camera in the foreground.

ORIGINAL PICTURE – This photo was issued by @SussexRoyal of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Christmas card. Meghan’s face appears significantly more in focus than that of Prince Harry in the card picture, despite them both being roughly the same distance behind Archie

Following the comments on the comments on, MailOnline’s picture desk flattened out the shadows on Meghan’s face, which appears to show it was later added onto her body.

One possible reason is that the image of her face was taken in another similar photograph in the same shoot, and then added onto the picture they released.

MailOnline also spoke to Max Cisotti, a photographer since who has owned various celebrity selling agencies, who said: ‘Something’s not right.

‘It’s all to do with focal plane. Harry and Meghan are parallel, so if one is in focus, the other would be. They are side by side – it’s not like he’s further forward.

‘Her face (might have) been Photoshopped from another picture onto that. There are two lights on the baby’s face – in his left pupil there are two white reflections.

EDITED IMAGE – Research by MailOnline’s picture desk, which flattened out the shadows on Meghan’s face, appears to show it was later added onto her body

‘Then we look at the shadow on Meghan . Her left, you can’t really see the hairline and all that. All you can see is her face. So one of two things has potentially happened.

‘One, they deliberately out-of-focused everything, and then have just gone in and enhanced the detail just on her face – which would seem peculiar.

‘I would suggest her face has been Photoshopped from another picture, otherwise it would be out of focus. They are so far behind, everything else is out of focus.

‘So her face has either been superimposed or enhanced considerably. You cannot change the laws of physics, no matter who you are. ‘

The card was not officially released through any official royal channels, and first appeared on an unverified Twitter account called The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.

Initially shared as a moving Gif image, with the lights on the tree twinkling, the account said: ‘Just sharing the sweetest Christmas Card from our President and Vice-President, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Very Merry Christmas, everyone! ‘

It is believed that copies of the image, taken by the couple’s friend Janina Gavankar, were emailed to friends and staff on Monday and hard copies sent to family.

A spokesman for the Sussexes has confirmed the card’s authenticity. Harry and Meghan are currently spending a six-week break over the festive period in Canada.
