Christmas at Sandringham is the most wonderful time of the year in the royal family, but unfortunately, Meghan Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland, won’t get to experience it for herself just yet.

Despite reports that Ragland will join the royal family for their annual holiday reprieve at Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England, People confirms she will not partake in the festivities.

This shouldn’t come as an enormous surprise, as Kate Middleton’s family has never been asked to join in on the tradition either. In fact, even Markle broke protocol when she joined the family at Sandringham last year prior to becoming the Duchess of Sussex.

Fingers crossed Markle, Prince Harry, their bump and Ragland can enjoy a low-key celebration at home during the couple’s last few weeks at their Kensington Palace Nottingham Cottage.

Christmas: It’s always complicated.
