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

Doria Ragland, 62, reportedly impressed senior royals with her demeanour at the wedding of her daughter and Prince Harry.

While Kate's family has joined them at church on Christmas morning, they've never stayed at the Norfolk estate.

This holiday season will mark Meghan Markle's first as an official member of the royal family, and the season is shaping up to be a family affair as the Queen has reportedly invited Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, to stay for Christmas. The Queen usually spends Christmas and New Year's at her Sandringham estate, with members of her family often joining her.

The Middletons have spent Christmas with the royal family but resided in the neighboring country house Anmer Hall instead.

When it came to the fashion on her royal tour with Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex saved the best for last.

As Harry shared in their November engagement interview, "I'd been seeing her for a period of time when I literally didn't tell anybody at all".

A source tells ET that Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, is expected to spend some of the holiday with her pregnant daughter and her son-in-law. Meghan Markle rocked an electric blue ensemble from her wedding dress designer Givenchy - but what most style spotters failed to notice was that the fabulous pleated skirt that she combined with the matching sweater was see-through!

According to PEOPLE, Markle will take part in activities, including exchanging gifts, holiday meals and even a game of soccer.

The invitation to Christmas dinner has also fuelled rumours that Doria Ragland may move to London, from her home in Los Angeles.
