Queen 'asks Meghan Markle mother Doria to Christmas at Sandringham'

Queen Elizabeth has reportedly invited Meghan Markle's mother Doria Ragland to spend Christmas with the royal family at Sandringham, the Daily Mail reported. It's expected that Doria will receive an invitation to attend church with the royal family at Sandringham, the royal estate in Norfolk, England, where the royal family traditionally celebrates the holiday.

The Queen's invitation would show respect and also acknowledge that Meghan, unlike Kate, has no other family in Britain, the source said.

After Meghan married Prince Harry there was a backlash from her family although Doria did attend the wedding without any fuss.

Watch the Newsfeed discussion above.

The Duchess of Cambridge's family has joined the royals at church on Christmas morning but they have stayed at nearby Anmer Hall rather than Sandringham itself.

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.

The invitation is fuelling speculation that Doria - who is now based in Los Angeles - may remain in London for the duration of Meghan's first pregnancy.

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. "She has been to Meghan and Harry's home in the Cotswolds several times and she has stayed with them at Nottingham Cottage".

It looks like the Royal Family will be adding a seat to their Christmas table this holiday season.

Also on Christmas Eve, William and Harry are usually on hand to play a charity soccer match on the estate, which is followed by dinner.
