Queen Elizabeth invites Meghan Markle's mom to United Kingdom for Christmas

The Duchess of Cambridge's family has joined the royals at church on Christmas morning but they have stayed at nearby Anmer Hall rather than Sandringham itself.

But it seems Meghan Markle's bond with her husband, Prince Harry's, grandma is so strong - she's chose to break protocol.

Sources say the Monarch has made the "very thoughtful gesture" towards Ragland because she respects her so much.

The Queen's invitation would show respect and also acknowledge that Meghan, unlike Kate, has no other family in Britain, the source said.

Spending Christmas at Sandringham will only strengthen her relationship with the royal family and Meghan will be about five months pregnant by then.

Ms Ragland also left her job as a social worker for the Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services clinic in LA before the Royal Wedding.

The former Suits star - who is now pregnant with their first baby - is said to be as thick as thieves with the Queen, despite all the drama her own family have caused.

Ms Ragland, 62, impressed senior royals including the Queen with her shy and gentle nature displayed at her daughter's royal wedding and during Meghan's first solo project when she launched the cookbook "Together".

Following weeks of drama surrounding Meghan's father Thomas Markle and her extended and estranged family members in the US, Doria was praised for her composed and graceful appearance at the royal wedding.

There's even rumours she's planning on moving from her home in Windsor Hills in LA to the UK. A spokesperson for Kensington Palace has been contacted by HELLO! but declined to comment.
