Here’s How Meghan Markle Will Spend Her First Christmas With The Royal Family

Black tie dinners, gag gifts, and charades are on the packed schedule.

Meghan Markle is changing up royal family tradition this year! For the first time ever, Queen Elizabeth is welcoming the non-relative to her exclusive Christmas celebrations at her estate in Sandringham, despite her strict “no ring, no bring” policy of years’ past. “This is a completely new departure from Christmas with reference to the royal family,” royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told ET. “Normally, the protocol is pretty strict.” However, Meghan managed to score an invite, and Richard thinks her fiancé Prince Harry is to thank. “The main reason [Meghan is invited] is clearly that it’s what Harry wished,” he told ET. And now, Meghan has three full days of celebrating to look forward to with the royal crew! Click through for all the details on Meghan’s royal family Christmas.
