Queen invites Meghan Markle's mum to royal family's Christmas celebrations

She attended the royal wedding alone after Thomas was forced to pull out due to health issues, and has since been welcomed into the royal family's inner circle by Prince Charles, who walked his future daughter-in-law up the aisle. The Queen usually spends Christmas and New Year's at her Sandringham estate, with members of her family often joining her.

This is a big move for the Queen, who has never even extended this invite to the Middleton family.

The source is reported to have said that the Queen's invitation showed respect and acknowledged that Meghan would be spending Christmas away from family in Britain.

The invitation is fuelling speculation that Doria - who is now based in Los Angeles - may remain in London for the duration of Meghan's first pregnancy. Instead, they have stayed at nearby Amner Hall rather than Sandringham, where the Queen resides during her trips to the country. "She has been to Meghan and Harry's home in the Cotswolds several times and she has stayed with them at Nottingham Cottage".

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! Meghan is very close to her mum.

However, the invitation may have something to do with the fact that the pregnant Duchess of Sussex has no other family in the UK.

The 11-a-side game is played at Castle Rising, near Sandringham, and the princes normally play on opposing teams - with Kate's brother James Middleton previously joining too.
