The Queen Has Invited One Of Meghan's Family To Christmas

Queen 'asks Meghan Markle mother Doria to Christmas at Sandringham'
This year's Christmas celebration at Sandringham is expected to be particularly joyful for the royal family, which has celebrated a royal baby, royal baby announcement, royal wedding and Prince Charles's 70th birthday all within the last 12 months.
For decades, Queen Elizabeth II only invited close family members, their spouses and children to spend quality time with her over the holidays.
It's also a huge gesture as not even Duchess Kate's family has been invited to the official royal Christmas function. "Normally, the protocol is pretty strict".
According to the Daily Mail report, Meghan Markle's mother Doria Ragland will be the first person to have received the invite apart from the Royals to spend the holiday there.
The newly minted Duchess of Sussex is now in the years-long process of applying for British citizenship, meaning that she is still an American citizen and therefore can vote by absentee ballot, though it may be something that would be frowned upon. "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 flawless time to do it". One of the biggest changes that Meghan has experienced over the past year now becomes more relevant and important than ever before-her activity and involvement in anything political. The 37-year-old mum-to-be also posted a lengthy article in 2016 about voting, which was uploaded on her now closed-down blog, The Tig.
US-born Meghan moved to the United Kingdom ahead of her royal wedding in May this year, but the Duchess - who is completing the long process of becoming a British citizen - can still vote in America. However, they have previously attended Christmas day church services with the Queen and the rest of the family.
