Why Meghan and Harry won't spend Christmas with William and Kate

But if Markle wants advice on how to ride out the media storm, she may want to consider what another person in the public glare - former American First Lady Michelle Obama - has provided.

The holiday will no doubt be extra special as it is Harry and Meghan's first as newlyweds and last before welcoming their first child together in the spring of 2019.

And, instead of letting the tabloids decide what insider is telling the truth, the Palace also issued a brief statement about rumors that Kate had to tell Meghan to stop berating members of her staff. Rumor has it Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton aren't exactly pals, and Middleton may have barked at Markle for being rude to the Duchess of Cambridge's staff, per Town & Country.

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, reportedly avoids reading about her apparent rift with Kate because "she believes in karma", a source has claimed. Before betting was stopped, the odds of Markle giving birth to twins reached a high of 5 to 1.

Meghan's husband, Prince Harry, has long since had close ties to the Obamas.

It would come as no surprise if Meghan's mom was spotted with the rest of the royals on Christmas day, as the duchess is Doria's only child and the two are extremely close. During a visit to Leicester earlier this week, Kate told a fan that she's "absolutely" excited for Meghan and Harry's new baby.

Some of the negative articles seem to paint Meghan as a diva accustomed to getting her way.

It has now been reported that courtiers at Kensington Palace have started a search to find out exactly who has been leaking information regarding the Duchesses' relationship.

A spokesperson for Kensington Palace has however denied this. "Meghan put a lot of demands on her and it ended up with her in tears", the source stated.

"Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she'd have a life like this", Mrs Obama told Good Housekeeping magazine.

"One of my own favourite meals is collard greens, black-eyed peas cornbread - a meal I would look forward to throughout my childhood", she said.
