First, Meghan Markle won over Queen Elizabeth’s corgis. And now, the Suits star will mark another royal milestone this holiday season.
Markle will be the first fiancée to spend Christmas with the royal family, according to reports. The gathering will take place at the queen’s private estate, Sandringham House, in Norfolk, where they will attend a black-tie dinner, open gifts on Christmas Eve (natch) and indulge in a full English breakfast the following morning.
Per royal tradition, fiancées typically aren’t invited to the queen’s holiday festivities. Back in 2010, newly engaged Kate Middleton wasn’t allowed to attend the family’s celebrations due to the outdated rule. However, Prince Harry reportedly asked the queen to make an exception for Markle this year, and we’d have done anything to have been a fly on the wall for that conversation.
Keep it up, Markle. Residency in Buckingham Palace could be next.
