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

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.

Kate (36) family have never been asked to join the royals at the queen's private home and have only attended the morning church service with the family - so Doria will be the first non-royal to spend the day at the estate, Glamour writes.

An emotional Doria was the only member of Meghan's family to attend her wedding to Prince Harry at Windsor Castle in May.

Doria Ragland married Thomas Markle in 1979.

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. Kate and William have alternated holidays, spending Christmas at Sandringham and at her family's home in Bucklebury.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

When it came to the fashion on her royal tour with Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex saved the best for last.

Mr Markle pulled out because of health problems just days before she was due to walk down the aisle and admitted he had staged paparazzi pictures.

The invitation is fuelling speculation that Doria - who is now based in Los Angeles - may remain in London for the duration of Meghan's first pregnancy.

It has been said the the Queen was very taken with Doria following the royal wedding.

Doria was also in London in September and joined her daughter at an outdoor reception at Kensington Palace to mark the launch of a cookbook.
