Meghan Markle Reminisces on First Royal Christmas

Meghan Markle

While Christmas cheer blankets the UK, a poignant contrast emerges for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

As reports claim the royal family didn’t invite the couple to the Sandringham festivities, Meghan Markle  past reflection on her first Christmas with the Royals adds a bittersweet layer to the holiday season.


A Look Back at Meghan and Harry’s First Christmas in the UK:

In the Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan,” the Duchess opened up about her 2017 Christmas at Sandringham, calling it “amazing” and “like a big family.” She described the “constant movement and energy” of the celebrations and her joy at being welcomed into the fold. The memory served as a stark reminder of the distance that has grown between the Sussexes and the institution they once belonged to.

While specifics surrounding the reported snub remain unconfirmed, it fuels speculation about ongoing tensions within the family. Some commentators see this as a continuation of the rift that led to Harry and Meghan’s departure from royal duties in 2020. Others speculate it could be a consequence of the couple’s recent docuseries, which offered insights into their experiences within the royal framework.


The Absence of an Invitation:


Whatever the reason, the exclusion undoubtedly casts a shadow over the couple’s Christmas.

With reports suggesting they’ll be spending the holiday in California with their children, Archie and Lilibet, one can’t help but wonder if a sense of loss will tinge these festive memories.

Despite the reported snub, it’s important to remember that the holidays are primarily about family and loved ones. While not being with extended family is never easy, Harry and Meghan are building their traditions with their young children. They can fill their Christmas with joy, laughter, and the creation of new cherished memories, even if it’s different.




Ultimately, the story of Meghan’s first royal Christmas and the reported exclusion this year paints a complex tapestry of relationships, tradition, and the ever-evolving dynamics of family.

While the future remains uncertain, one thing stands clear: Harry and Meghan persist in forging their path, and they will undoubtedly fill their holidays with love and the warm glow of family, whether spent amongst royals or not, albeit on their terms.
