Queen invites Meghan Markle's mother to spend Christmas with the royal family

Doria Ragland has reportedly been asked to join the royals on Christmas day. So although it may not have been so revealing when Meghan got dressed, under the bright light of the sun and with the press' camera flashes, it gave away more than she intended.

The Queen has invited the Duchess of Sussex's mother Doria to join the Royal Family for Christmas at Sandringham.

She attended the royal wedding alone after Thomas was forced to pull out due to health issues, and has since been welcomed into the royal family's inner circle by Prince Charles, who walked his future daughter-in-law up the aisle.

Amazon to roll out free shipping to everyone during 2018 holiday season
Today Amazon announced that they are offering free shipping to everyone in the United States with no minimum purchase needed. The National Retail Foundation forecasts holiday retail sales will climb by up to 4.8% compared to a year ago.

A source adds, "It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgment that she doesn't have any other relations in this country - unlike Kate, who has the support of a very close family".

The move is somewhat unprecedented, as a member outside of the Royal family has not been invited to stay at the Norfolk estate during the Christmas period before. Kate and William have alternated holidays, spending Christmas at Sandringham and at her family's home in Bucklebury. Meghan is very close to her mum.

"It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgment that she doesn't have any other relations in this country - unlike Kate who has the support of a very close family", a source tells the United Kingdom outlet. "She has been to Meghan and Harry's home in the Cotswolds several times and she has stayed with them at Nottingham Cottage". Instead, the royals give silly gifts - one year, Middleton reportedly even gave Harry a plastic Grow Your Own Girlfriend kit.
