They're here! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released their stunning 2018 Christmas card, and it's just as breathtaking as you would imagine. Kensington Palace shared a never-before-seen black-and-white photo from the couple's May 19 wedding reception to its Instagram account on Friday, showing the bride and groom, arms around each other, watching fireworks.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from the Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May," the photo's caption reads. "The photograph, which was taken by photographer Chris Allerton, features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year."

The card shows a close-up shot of the back of Markle's stunning high, halter-neck mermaid Stella McCartney reception gown, which she changed into after wearing a Givenchy gown to the ceremony. While the Instagram post didn't give us any further info about the couple's reception, we did already know a few details about what happened on their big night. Both Prince Charles and Prince Harry gave speeches before Elton John serenaded the crowd with four of his best hits, "Your Song," "Tiny Dancer," "Circle of Life," and "I'm Still Standing." Prince Harry's favorite DJ, Sam Totolee, kept the crowd dancing all night long as the royal family served midnight snacks and cotton candy for the guests.

The bride and groom had their first dance as a married couple to Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody"—here's hoping that moment will somehow make its way into next year's Christmas card.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle weren't the only members of the royal family to share a Christmas card photo. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also revealed a shot from their Christmas card, which was very different than Meghan and Harry's, yet equally adorable. Kate and Will's card featured the adorable Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis (who has already gotten so big!) in a laid-back setting.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family," Kensington Palace wrote on Instagram alongside the family pic. "The photograph, taken by Matt Porteous, shows The Duke and Duchess with their three children at Anmer Hall. This photograph features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year."

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, shared their sweet Christmas card as well. The Clarence House posted a casual shot of the couple sitting on a bench with a caption that read, "Here is a closer look at the photograph that featured on The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall’s Christmas card this year. The photograph was taken by Hugo Burnand in the garden of Clarence House this summer."

All that's left is a shot of the Queen and Prince Philip!
