Queen invites Meghan's mum to spend Christmas with the royal family

Meghan Markle's mother Doria Ragland has reportedly been invited by the Queen to spend Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham. In light of all the pre-wedding drama caused by Meghan Markle's father, Doria was poised, collected, and there for Meghan (as the mother of the bride should be). Holiday festivities are an event that few outside the royals' inner circle have the privilege of participating in.

A source adds, "It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgment that she doesn't have any other relations in this country - unlike Kate, who has the support of a very close family".

Just days ago, Meghan Markle delivered a powerful speech about women's suffrage, and many are speculating whether the United States citizen practiced what she preached on Election Day Tuesday. However, they stayed not in the Royal Palace, and Anmer hall - located near the Norfolk residence of Kate and William.

When the former Suits actress first became a part of the British monarchy with a fairytale ceremony on May 19, Markle's mom Doria was the only member of her family in attendance to watch her walk down the aisle and exchange her "I dos" with Prince Harry.


"It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgment that she doesn't have any other relations in this country - unlike Kate who has the support of a very close family", a source tells the United Kingdom outlet.

The source continues, explaining that Harry's children will also feel the influence of the late Princess Diana, who wanted her family to be aware of those less fortunate and live their lives with appreciation.

Traditionally, the royal festive fun is held at Sandringham, one of the Queen's official residences.

Last year, Elizabeth made a historic exception by inviting Markle, and now she is breaking royal tradition again for Markle's mother.
