A source tells ET that the couple, who is now expecting their first child together, plans to give their kids as normal an upbringing as possible.

Markle, who is still in the lengthy process of becoming a British citizen following her May matrimony to Harry, would have been able to cast her vote at a poll or send an absentee ballot.

Megan is very close with his mother. To such a point that the sovereign himself would have been a very nice surprise.

Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, memorably broke protocol a year ago by inviting Meghan as the first fiancée to attend Christmas with the royal family before her wedding to Harry in May. A nice attention for the mom-to-be. In addition, the American was accompanied by Meghan Markle before the wedding ceremony.

It's Meghan's mum Doria Ragland who has actually scored the invite. An invitation that never stops talking. This means their children will grow up a bit differently from Prince William and Kate Middleton's kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, who are in the direct line of succession to the throne. A source says the invite serves as "a mark of respect" from Queen Elizabeth II. The moment should also serve as a nice full-circle one for Meghan, who just a year ago broke royal protocol when she was invited to spend Christmas with her then-fiancé's family for the first time (usually, royals need to be married for their other half to be welcomed to such major family events). In the rest of the news, it would seem that Justin Bieber is unhappy in spite of his marriage with Hailey Baldwin. According to Helliker, this gesture is also explained because His Majesty would have been very impressed by the calmness of Doria Ragland for the wedding of his daughter.
