Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle joined the royal family Christmas gathering at the Sandringham Estate in England in 2017. Meghan Markle was then Duke of Sussex’ fiancée. It was the first time the public saw her standing shoulder to shoulder with future in-laws, Prince William and Kate Middleton. Meghan Markle was the first fiancée to receive a Christmas invite from Queen Elizabeth as Princess Diana, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, Sophie the Duchess of Edinburgh and Kate Middleton could not join the celebrations until they were married to make their first festive royal appearance.

What Meghan Markle said about royal family Christmas

“I remember so vividly the first Christmas at Sandringham. Calling my mom, and she’s like, ‘How’s it going?’ And I said, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s amazing.’ It’s just like a big family like I always wanted. And there was just this constant movement and energy and fun. At dinner, I was sat next to H’s grandfather [Prince Philip] and I just thought it was so wonderful. And I was like, ‘Oh, we chatted and it was so great. And I talked about this, and talked about this.’ He was like, ‘You had his bad ear. He couldn’t hear anything you were saying.’ I was like, ‘Oh. Well, I thought it went really well.’”
