If a trip up to Sandringham wasn't enough to show how the queen has welcomed Markle into the family, a framed photo from her and Harry's engagement announcement sat on an end table while the Queen gave her annual Christmas speech. The queen and Philip are spending the holidays at Elizabeth's country estate in Sandringham, 110 miles (175 kilometers) north of London.

"Harry loves it and has always been out there on Boxing Day".
Prince Harry defied royal tradition, avoiding the Boxing Day Hunt this year, as his soon-to-be-wife, Meghan Markle does not approve of the custom that is killing foxes, deer and hare. "She was very, very lovely", said Judith Wallis, a woman who chatted briefly with the couple.
Revealing a few of the finer details, Prince Harry revealed that he and Meghan spent the day with his brother William and his sister-in-law, Kate - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. "Together, we had an unbelievable time, we had great fun staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running around with the kids". "We were running around with the kids and Christmas was fantastic". They plan to Wednesday on May 19, 2018, at Windsor Castle.
When asked whether he and Markle plan to invite Barack and Michelle Obama to their wedding, Harry told the BBC presenters that the couple haven't gotten that far yet. "Every family is complex", Harry said. Her overall look was sophisticated and stylish with a modern twist. Later, he added: "It's the family that, I suppose, she's never had".
"As I said we are really looking forward to the New Year and looking forward to 2018 because I'm determined to make sure that the pendulum is going to swing and 2018 is going to be a fantastic year".
