Alone In Her Room: Meghan Markle Will Now Spend Christmas Mornings Without Prince Harry

When it comes to family traditions, people immediately think about the House of Windsor, because at times it seems that there is no other royal family with as many restrictions and rules. Christmas is a special time for Elizabeth II, who gathers relatives at Sandringham Palace. By the way, as we wrote here, not everybody fancies the Queen's idea of fun on Christmas Eve.
For Meghan, who is expecting her first child in the spring of 2019, this will be the second Christmas in the circle of the royal family. In 2017, she had already been honored to spend holidays with the Queen, although she was at that stage only the Prince’s fiancé.
This event was likely very exciting for the future Duchess, especially given the amount of rumors about her relationship with the Prince and the upcoming wedding. However, Harry mentioned that the holidays went off splendidly and his bride-to-be had a lovely time.
Many people are waiting for the magical Christmas Eve when everything seems possible. For Meghan Markle’s fans, it is yet another fashionable event, as the Duchess will probably parade another gorgeous look to the solemn mass, as she did last year.
There is one more peculiarity to the royal Christmas: the prince's spouse will spend the morning alone, like any other woman in the British royal family. Darren McGrady, who was Queen’s personal chef for a long time, and later Princess Diana’s, shared information about this tradition with The Daily Mail. On Christmas morning, it is customary for men to gather for a hearty breakfast, while women prefer light meals (fruit, toast, and coffee) delivered directly to everyone’s room. On the one hand, this tradition may seem a bit strange since the holiday is considered a family one. On the other hand, why not be treated to some "me time" on a rare day off?

We also decided to recount how Meghan rested before joining the royal family. Since the Duchess was forced to delete all accounts on social networks, many photos from her past life were no longer available, but still some previously unseen photos of her sporadically appear on the internet. For instance, these shots from her trip to Malta.
After the kaleidoscope of dresses that she showed over the past year, seeing her in such casual clothes is rather unusual, isn’t it?
However, the time when Markle could indulge in something like that is far gone. Now, each Christmas she will eat alone, joining her husband and other relatives only after breakfast. What do you think about this tradition?
