Midterms: Did Meghan Markle vote? Kensington Palace refuses to confirm


Many have already begun to prepare for Christmas, including the Royal family! Last year she invited the then newly engaged actress to spend Christmas with the royals, breaking years of tradition that decreed only those who had married immediate members of the royal family could join them at the lunch table. Holiday festivities are an event that few outside the royals' inner circle have the privilege of participating in.

It's a big step for the Queen and other royals, after all, Kate's mum and dad, the Middletons, have previously attended Christmas church services with the royal family, but have never actually stayed with them for the holidays. That being said, Kensington Palace doesn't seem privy to confirm or deny whether or not Markle has exercised her right, telling PEOPLE "no comment" when asked.

She has remained respectful of the royal family and her daughter, unlike Meghan's father, Thomas Markle.

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

Traditionally, the royal festive fun is held at Sandringham, one of the Queen's official residences.

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. However, they stayed not in the Royal Palace, and Anmer hall - located near the Norfolk residence of Kate and William.

At this point the, Royal family's love for both Meghan and her mom has been well documented and Prince Charles has reportedly gone so far as to call Meghan the best thing to ever happen to Harry and doted all over Doria doing the couple's wedding reception this past spring.
