  • Queen invites Meghan Markle's mum to royal family's Christmas celebrations

Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, memorably broke protocol a year ago by inviting Meghan as the first fiancée to attend Christmas with the royal family before her wedding to Harry in May.

It is also a warm move towards Doria Ragland, 62, who impressed the Queen with her quiet composure at Prince Harry's wedding in May.

Meghan and her mother have remained notably close, while Megan's relationship with her father, Thomas Markle, remains strained.

Even Kate Middleton's family have not been invited to the Norfolk estate.

When the 92-year-old Monarch heard about it she told Doria she could come to Sandringham.

The Duchess of Cambridge's family has joined the royals at church on Christmas morning but they have stayed at nearby Anmer Hall rather than Sandringham itself.


The source is reported to have said that the Queen's invitation showed respect and acknowledged that Meghan would be spending Christmas away from family in Britain. "She has been to Meghan and Harry's home in the Cotswolds several times and she has stayed with them at Nottingham Cottage".

Doria Ragland has reportedly been asked to join the royals on Christmas day. Meghan is very close to her mum.

In addition to being her first as a royal, the holiday will also be Markle's first as an expectant mother, as the Duchess of Sussex is now pregnant with her first child with Harry.

It looks like the Royal Family will be adding a seat to their Christmas table this holiday season.

Kate Middleton's mother Carol Middleton reportedly felt snubbed.

Meghan will attend not one but two church services on Christmas Day.
