The Queen will have a 'formal' Christmas celebration with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, expert claims

THERE might be thousands of miles separating them this Christmas – but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will still find a way to celebrate the festive season with The Queen, an expert has claimed.

Earlier this month, royal correspondent Neil Sean discussed how the Royal Family will be marking Christmas this year on his YouTube channel.

The Queen is expected to spend her first Christmas since Prince Philip passed away at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk surrounded by her close family – including Prince William and Kate Middleton.

That said, the expert claims Her Majesty will still make an effort to include the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who now live in Montecito, California – in the celebrations.

Neil claimed: "There will be some gifts but it will be very formal.

"[The Queen] is far too gracious to be childish and not include [Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the gift package."


However, the expert said the gift opening would take place at "a distance" and NOT over Zoom calls.

Earlier this year, Prince Harry revealed that The Queen had sent Archie a wafflemaker for Christmas in 2020.

During his appearance on James Corden's The Late Late Show, the Duke of Sussex said: "Interestingly, my grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas and Meg said a waffle maker.

"Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix, in the waffle maker, flip it, out it comes, he loves it. Archie literally wakes up in the morning and says 'waffle'."

Last week, royal expert Katie Nicholl claimed Kate Middleton and Prince William WILL send their niece and nephew Christmas presents – despite their rift with Harry and Meghan.

Speaking to Ok! magazine, royal expert Katie Nicholl said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge still want to keep their Christmas traditions going.

When asked if they would be sending Archie and Lilibet presents, Katie said: "Yes, of course.

"They give gifts to the whole family and that includes all their nieces and nephews."
