Queen 'asks Meghan Markle mother Doria to Christmas at Sandringham'

MEGHAN Markle's mum could be spending Christmas Day with the royal family after claims the Queen extended the invite to her new in-law.

Many royal watchers were quick to point out that this was the Queen's way of showing her approval for her grandson Prince Harry's fiancee. Interestingly, this Elizabeth never offered to parents of their other daughter-in-law Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge's parents did not stay with family for the holidays. "Normally, the protocol is pretty strict".

Royal.uk.com even states about Queen Elizabeth's role in government, that, she is to "remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters" and is 'unable to vote or stand for election'. "In the past, when Kate Middleton was engaged to William and also when Mike Tindall was engaged to Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Phillips, they didn't, as [an] unmarried [couple], spend Christmas with the Queen".

This year, as a married woman, Meghan will automatically be taking part in the holiday activities at Sandringham. She transformed from a Hollywood actress into the regal Duchess of Sussex, but it's not just her job title that got a dramatic makeover.

When the 92-year-old Monarch heard about it she told Doria she could come to Sandringham. Her attendance at this event is notable because while the families of people who marry into the royal fam are welcomed at big events, (like weddings and christenings), they do not have the privilege tag along for royal engagements.

It will be Doria's first time hanging with the royal family since watching her daughter walk down the aisle to marry Prince Harry in May, though she did jet over to London for the launch of Meghan's cookbook in September. And while she surely missed her mom Doria Ragland back home in 2017, it seems the Queen may have eased her worries this year by adding an extra seat at the festive table for the California resident!
