It was announced that Markle and Prince Harry would welcome their first child together in the spring of 2019.
Markle and Prince Harry are expected to attend the royals’ traditional Christmas morning church outing in Sandringham, Norfolk, an event she attended last December when she was engaged to marry into the royal family.
She became the first royal fiancee to spend the holiday at Sandringham with the queen before marrying into the family. Even Kate Middleton spent her first Christmas as Prince William’s fiancee, in December 2010, with her own family in England, reported USA Today.
Royal tradition dictates that on the official Christmas holiday, the family will have exchanged presents the night prior and awaken to a stocking of small gifts and fruit at the end of their beds.
After church services, the entire royal family will return home for a traditional turkey lunch before watching the queen’s speech together.
