MEGHAN MARKLE will join the Queen and other members of the royal family for Christmas at Sandringham, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

Meghan and fiancé Prince Harry will be seen in public with other royals when they attend the traditional Christmas Day church service on the Queen’s private estate in Norfolk.

The couple got engaged on November 27 and, a few days later, a proud Harry showed off his bride-to-be on her first official event in Nottingham. Buckingham Palace has said the Queen and other members of the royal family will join the congregation for the morning service at St Mary Magdalene Church on December 25.

It is thought William and Kate, who is pregnant with her third child, will not take their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: ‘You can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day.’

During a TV interview to mark their engagement, Harry and Meghan revealed that the former actress had met the Queen.

But if she has not been introduced to the rest of the family, the Christmas gathering will be the opportunity to chat to the Princess Royal, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Duke of York and his daughters.
