Many have already begun to prepare for Christmas, including the Royal family!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first holiday as a married couple is sure to be a memorable one. Her attendance at this event is notable because while the families of people who marry into the royal fam are welcomed at big events, (like weddings and christenings), they do not have the privilege tag along for royal engagements. 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.

"Now that they are engaged it was unthinkable that they would be apart for Christmas", a friend of Prince Harry's told The Times a year ago.

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'.

Democrat Janet Mills of ME and Republican Kristi Noem of South Dakota are the first women elected as governor in their state. Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia won House races in Texas, making them the first Latina women to ever represent the state.

The House Of Windsor have previously arranged for the Duchess Of Cambridge's family to join them at church on Christmas morning but they did not stay at Sandringham. "It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgement that she doesn't have any other relations in this country-unlike Kate, who has the support of a very close family", a senior royal source reportedly told the Daily Express.

When the former Suits actress first became a part of the British monarchy with a fairytale ceremony on May 19, Markle's mom Doria was the only member of her family in attendance to watch her walk down the aisle and exchange her "I dos" with Prince Harry.

Something tells us the Duchess of Sussex won't get dinged for this slight departure from tradition, though.
