Express: Queen Elizabeth extends unprecedented invitation for Christmas to Meghan Markle's mother
Queen Elizabeth reportedly invited Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, to Christmas Dinner, a gesture that shows her respect for the Duchess.
Ragland seems to have impressed the monarch with her simple and composed posture at the Royal Wedding, which took place on May 19, 2018, at St. George's Chapel.
According to the Express, Ragland will follow in the footsteps of Kate Middleton's family since they were also invited to a Christmas event in the past.

The Middletons were previously invited to join the Royal Family for the Christmas morning church service, but they were based at Kate and William's home, Ammer Hall.
SUCH AN HONOR
As reported by the news outlet, the Queen's invitation is a clear sign of the 'respect for Meghan and an acknowledgment that she doesn't have any other relations in the country - unlike Kate, who has the support of a very close family.'
Receiving such an invitation is a true honor and Ragland's presence at Sandringham is bound to fuel some speculation regarding a longer stay in the country.
WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS
Ragland currently lives in Windsor Hills, Los Angeles, but she may stay in Britain in order to support her daughter, who is expected to give birth in Spring.
Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, couldn't be more excited for the new addition to the family, but so far nothing more is known about the baby.
A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR
Just like it happened when Kate gave birth to George, Charlotte and Louis, the royal couple won't know whether they will have a boy or a girl until they welcome it into the world.
Recently, Harry and Meghan returned from a 16-day tour in Australia, where they attended the 2018 edition of the Invictus Games and where Harry had to protect Meghan from a sailor's bear hug due to her pregnant state.
