Meghan Markle is ALREADY breaking tradition by spending Christmas with the Queen

by Super User
The bride-to-be is certainly getting her feet under the table... She is not yet a member of the royal family. But that isn't stopping Meghan Markle from getting cosy with The Queen, this Christmas - according to reports they'll spend the festivities together. According to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, the actress will join the Windsors for their annual, three-day celebrations at Sandringham House, Norfolk, because her family are miles away in America. Although breaking traditional protocol, PR advisors insist it's a necessary gesture to avoid ill feeling or, worse, a PR storm.

However, the move is likely to raise eyebrows with the Duchess of Cambridge, who was forced to wait until she was married before being allowed a seat at the royal dining table. Similarly, Mike Tindall was also snubbed form the celebrations until he was wed to Princess Anne's daughter, Zara.

Mr Fitzwilliams told Santa CCTV : “It is expected Meghan will join Harry and the rest of the Royal Family for Christmas on the Queen 's estate in Norfolk this year. “In 2010 Kate was not invited to do so after her engagement to William nor was Mike Tindall after his to the Princess Royal's daughter Zara Phillips and only spouses and close family are usually invited.

“However Harry and Meghan will be living together at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace and her family are in the United States. The monarchy relies heavily on precedent and tradition but it also makes its own.”

Not that this is the first time Meghan has tore-up tradition.

During the official engagement announcement, Meghan broke a royal dressing rule previously upheld by both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen. The former Suits actor appeared bare-legged for the photoshoot in Kensington Palace's sunken garden.

According to Harper's Bazaar , for all royal events the Queen requires her family members, and her guests, to wear tights. https://youtu.be/q1hSNlW3RQs
