The 62-year-old stepped out for a stroll near her home with her two pet dogs a day after royal insiders claimed that she had been "invited by the Queen" to attend the royal family's Christmas celebrations.

She reportedly said she was "head over heels" with pride as Meghan helped prepare lunch for guests.

Doria cut a casual appearance in a pair of cream pants and in light of the warm weather, did away with a jacket wearing a simple grey t-shirt. It's expected that Doria will receive an invitation to attend church with the royal family at Sandringham, the royal estate in Norfolk, England, where the royal family traditionally celebrates the holiday.

The source added: "It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgment that she doesn't have any other relations in this country - unlike Kate who has the support of a very close family".

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.
