Queen invites Meghan Markle's mum to royal family's Christmas celebrations

A senior royal source said that the unique move was "a very thoughtful gesture".

The invitation would would break with royal precedent.

The Middletons have previously attended Christmas church services with the royal family, but have never actually stayed with the royals for the holidays.

Meghan Markle's mother Doria Ragland has reportedly been invited by the Queen to spend Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham.

She has reportedly been asked to join her daughter Meghan Markle for Christmas at Sandringham in just a few weeks time.

According to both the Express and the Daily Mail, Queen Elizabeth II has invited Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, to join the Royal Family's Christmas festivities at Sandringham.

The Queen's invitation would show respect and also acknowledge that Meghan, unlike Kate, has no other family in Britain, the source said.

The mother-of-the-bride was the only member of Meghan's family to attend the ceremony at Windsor Castle and was praised for her graceful appearance amid the turmoil surrounding Meghan's father Thomas Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex and her mother reportedly speak on the phone everyday and a move to the United Kingdom could be on the cards with Meghan's royal baby on the way. So although it may not have been so revealing when Meghan got dressed, under the bright light of the sun and with the press' camera flashes, it gave away more than she intended.

She was also in London in September to join Meghan for the launch of a charity cookbook at Kensington Palace.
