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

Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly invited Doria Ragland over to Great Britain for Christmas. Per the Daily Mail's report, Doria has been invited to stay at Sandringham House in Norfolk, England for the duration of the royals' holiday festivities.

The 62-year-old was the only relative of Meghan's to attend her grand wedding to Prince Harry in May at Windsor Castle.

In contrast, Kate Middleton's parents have also been guests at the Sandringham Christmas morning church service but typically stay with their daughter and Prince William at their nearby home nearby, instead.

A source added: "She has never been asked to join the royal household for Christmas, and she would love to be regarded as part of the royal family".

Meghan - who is thought to be around four months pregnant - wore the striking outfit during a walkabout in Rotorua on her last day in New Zealand with her husband.

Per the outlet's source, Meghan and Camilla (who is Prince Harry's stepmother) "clearly really like each other" and their relationship is full of "real warmth and support".

Following weeks of drama surrounding Meghan's father Thomas Markle and her extended and estranged family members in the US, Doria was praised for her composed and graceful appearance at the royal wedding.

In addition to being her first as a royal, the holiday will also be Markle's first as an expectant mother, as the Duchess of Sussex is now pregnant with her first child with Harry. Instead, the royals give silly gifts - one year, Middleton reportedly even gave Harry a plastic Grow Your Own Girlfriend kit.
