Typically, those invitations are extended after marrying into the royal family.

Now, with the former actress having no immediate family to share her new life with, her majesty has reportedly chose to invite her mom, Doria Ragland (62), to spend Christmas at her private country house in Sandringham, England, Daily Mail reports. In her hotel room remained mum Doria Raglan.

A royal source said that the move was "a very thoughtful gesture", and quite unique to be honest.

Doria said she was thrilled at Meghan's pregnancy, saying she was "very happy about this lovely news and is looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild". Their Christmas schedule stays pretty much the same year after year - signing cards in the Summer, taking the royal train to Sandringham, black-tie dinner and drinks on Christmas Eve - and this year, there will be a new addition to the royal festivities.

"When you meet Doria, it all falls in place".

The 74-year-old former lighting director has courted controversy over multiple interviews he has given over Meghan and the royals.

Mr Markle pulled out because of health problems just days before she was due to walk down the aisle and admitted he had staged paparazzi pictures.

In July, he told The Sun On Sunday how he believed his daughter was masking the pressure of being part of "The Firm". However, they stayed not in the Royal Palace, and Anmer hall - located near the Norfolk residence of Kate and William.
