How Meghan Markle's Family Drama Helped Her Win Over the Royals

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

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.

The invitation would break the royal standard guide which has been followed for ages now.

The move is somewhat unprecedented, as a member outside of the Royal family has not been invited to stay at the Norfolk estate during the Christmas period before.

Insiders of the Royal family earlier it was reported that Queen Elizabeth forbade Meghan Markle have a party Baby Shower in honor of the future baby, because the holiday is not part of the British tradition.

A senior royal source told us about this nice gesture. The Middletons have spent Christmas with the royal family but resided in the neighboring country house Anmer Hall instead.

A source close to the family says that the invitation is a "mark of [the Queen's] respect" for Meghan, an acknowledgement that she doesn't have any family in England.

Kensington Palace said "No comment" when asked by ET Canada.

Mr Markle was due to walk his daughter down the aisle but pulled out at the last minute after it emerged he had staged paparazzi pictures in the days prior to it. To the altar, the actress took the father of Prince Harry - Prince Charles.

Doria said she was thrilled at Meghan's pregnancy, saying she was "very happy about this lovely news and is looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild".

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

And during her Commonwealth tour with Harry, Meghan gave a speech to celebrate the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand, highlighting the importance of the right to vote.
