In previous years, Princess Anne has gifted brother Charles a leather toilet seat, Kate has bought Harry a "grow-your-own girlfriend" kit and the Queen has receiced a shower cap that reads "Ain't Life a Bitch!" from grandson Harry.

For as long as anyone can remember, only royalty has ever received an invitation to the Queen's annual Christmas celebration at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk, where the Windsor family has always spent their Christmas holidays. The moment should also serve as a nice full-circle one for Meghan, who just previous year broke royal protocol when she was invited to spend Christmas with her then-fiancé's family for the first time (usually, royals need to be married for their other half to be welcomed to such major family events). "Normally, the protocol is pretty strict. And then William was longing to meet her and so was Catherine, so you know being our neighbors, we managed to get that in a couple of-well, quite a few times now, and Catherine has been absolutely".

Buckingham Palace told The Sun Online they were unable to comment on private matters concerning the royal family.

"Obviously Meghan's parents are in the United States, but the main reason [Meghan is invited] is clearly that it's what Harry wished", he continued.

But despite Meghan's passionate opinion on voting, it is not clear if the Duchess has cast her vote in the midterm elections. "But I wouldn't be at all surprised if it wasn't the queen's idea, simply because, it's so important to make a new member and a future senior member of the royal family feel welcome, feel at home, and Christmas is the ideal time to do it". To disobey the Queen decided Kate Middleton, who is secretly preparing a surprise party for a pregnant wife of Prince Harry.

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.

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

Kate Middleton's family has joined the royals at church on Christmas morning previously but have stayed at nearby Anmer Hall rather than Sandringham itself.
