Sounds like Meghan Markle‘s first Christmas with the royals was a successful one!
On Wednesday, while guest editing for BBC Radio 4‘s Today, Prince Harry spilled a few deets about his and Meghan’s first holiday as an engaged couple. As we previously reported, the Suits actress joined her princely fianc├â┬⌐ for his family’s annual Christmas trip to Sandringham House.
And, although Markle is the first royal fianc├â┬⌐e to celebrate the holiday with the Windsors, the royal fam welcomed the American divorc├â┬⌐e with open arms. On their Christmas celebration together, Harry dished:
“It was fantastic. She really enjoyed it. The family loved having her there.”
Awwwww. This is WONDERFUL to hear, especially since Christmas is a working holiday for the royals.
After joining Harry and his relatives at Buckingham Palace for pre-Christmas lunch, Meghan headed down to the Queen’s private home in Norfolk. On Christmas Day, Meghan joined the Queen and her brood for public appearances — including a church service at Church of St. Mary Magdalene.
“[With] the family part of Christmas, there’s always that work element as well and I think together, we had an amazing time, we had great fun staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running around with the kids.”
Understandably, the 33-year-old was forced to explain “plenty” of his family’s traditions to his future bride. Prince William‘s brother added:
“I think we’ve got one of the biggest families that I know of and every family is complex as well. She’s done an absolutely amazing job, she’s getting in there and it’s the family that I suppose she never had.”
Wow, okay. Way to make us cry, Harry!
We’re SO thrilled that Meghan is transitioning into royal life so well. Squee!!
