Despite speculation that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would celebrate Christmas in England with the royal family, they opted for a different celebration in the United States.
According to British media, there was a conversation between Harry and his father on the King’s birthday that raised the possibility of an improvement in their relationship, and it was even rumored that they would spend the festivities with the rest of the British royal family.
None of this happened, however, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their children remained on U.S. soil.
Harry and Meghan Markle’s Christmas
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their children enjoyed a family Christmas in Montecito, California, alongside Meghan’s mother, according to US Weekly.
During the Christmas festivities, the family enjoyed time together cooking, playing with the children and opening presents.
According to the Daily Mail, they maintained the custom of opening presents on Christmas Eve, as is traditionally done in the British royal family.
On the other hand, King Charles and his family celebrated Christmas surrounded by the Windsor family. He also invited Queen Camilla’s sister, children and grandchildren.
The surprise of the day was the presence of Sarah Ferguson, ex-wife of Prince Andrew, who accompanied the royal family for the first time in 32 years.
