Meghan Markle Is Spending Christmas with the Queen

Last week it was announced that Meghan Markle would break royal tradition this Christmas.

This is because Prince Harry’s bride-to-be will be the first fiancée to celebrate Christmas with the Queen – a tradition not usually extended to partners of royals until they are married.

Even the Duchess of Cambridge did not spend Christmas with Her Majesty after her and Prince William announced their engagement in 2010.

It’s no secret Meghan Markle has been breaking royal protocol ever since her and Prince Harry started dating a year and a half ago (from the couple’s initial PDA to Markle gracing a national magazine cover). In the latest royal news, Markle’s about to break another royal tradition this holiday season: spending Christmas with her new fiancé Prince Harry and—wait for it—the Queen.

Markle will be spending 72 hours of Christmas festivities with her new fiancé’s family, sources have confirmed to US Weekly. In the past, the Queen’s annual Sandringham holiday celebration has had a strict spouses-only policy, but Markle reportedly landed the Queen’s approval to attend as Harry’s fiancé. (Amazing.)

The 36-year-old former Suits star has only had great things to say about the Queen. In her engagement interview with Prince Harry, Markle revealed she had already met the Queen multiple times and described it as “incredible to be able to meet her through his lens…not just with his honor and respect for her as a monarch, but also his love for her as a grandmother.”

There will also reportedly be gag gifts and other, you know, “normal people” traditions. That’s a pretty sweet way to spend your holiday, if you ask us. It’s one of the many ways Markle’s life will significantly change when she officially becomes royalty in May.
