How Meghan Markle's Family Drama Helped Her Win Over the Royals

How Meghan Markle's Family Drama Helped Her Win Over the Royals

At the time, the former Suits star had just become engaged to Prince Harry, and wouldn't tie the knot for another five months.

The source also says Harry is "enormously fond of his mother-in-law", and she's been spending time at the couple's home, including two extended vacations this summer.

In previous years, Princess Anne has gifted brother Charles a leather toilet seat, Kate has bought Harry a "grow-your-own girlfriend" kit and the Queen has receiced a shower cap that reads "Ain't Life a Bitch!" from grandson Harry.

As a senior member of the Royal Family, she would typically be expected to follow in the Queen's footsteps and not cast a ballot in order to remain "strictly neutral with respect to political matters". However, they stayed not in the Royal Palace, and Anmer hall - located near the Norfolk residence of Kate and William.

Last year, Elizabeth made a historic exception by inviting Markle, and now she is breaking royal tradition again for Markle's mother. "But I wouldn't be at all surprised if it wasn't the queen's idea, simply because, it's so important to make a new member and a future senior member of the royal family feel welcome, feel at home, and Christmas is the ideal time to do it".

Doria's composure during the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding back in May left a lasting impression on the Queen, especially in the midst of all the drama surrounding Meghan's father, Thomas Markle.

But it seems like Doria might permanently move to the United Kingdom, so she can be closer to her daughter and unborn baby.

After Meghan married Prince Harry there was a backlash from her family although Doria did attend the wedding without any fuss.
