The Queen extends rare invite to Meghan Markle's mother

Meghan and her mum Doria Ragland are said to have a close relationship

Meghan and her mum Doria Ragland are said to have a close relationship

At the time, the former Suits star had just become engaged to Prince Harry, and wouldn't tie the knot for another five months.

In previous years, Princess Anne has gifted brother Charles a leather toilet seat, Kate has bought Harry a "grow-your-own girlfriend" kit and the Queen has receiced a shower cap that reads "Ain't Life a Bitch!" from grandson Harry.

Following weeks of drama surrounding Meghan's father Thomas Markle and her extended and estranged family members in the US, Doria was praised for her composed and graceful appearance at the royal wedding. "Normally, the protocol is pretty strict".

However, there is one person close to the Duchess of Sussex that will be on the receiving end of the Queen's generosity.




Royal.uk.com even states about Queen Elizabeth's role in government, that, she is to "remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters" and is 'unable to vote or stand for election'. This is a nice Christmas gift before the time!

When the 92-year-old Monarch heard about it she told Doria she could come to Sandringham. To disobey the Queen decided Kate Middleton, who is secretly preparing a surprise party for a pregnant wife of Prince Harry.

In contrast, Kate Middleton's parents have also been guests at the Sandringham Christmas morning church service but typically stay with their daughter and Prince William at their nearby home nearby, instead. All in all, it's been a taxing year for Markle as far as close family is concerned, save for her mom Doria, who made a dignified solo appearance at her daughter's wedding and has been been supporting her during her endeavors ever since.

US-born Meghan moved to the United Kingdom ahead of her royal wedding in May this year, but the Duchess - who is completing the long process of becoming a British citizen - can still vote in America.
