Meghan, who has previously revealed that she is a big fan of the holiday, often showed off her culinary skills in 2016, shortly before her relationship with Harry became public.
The lovely family-of-three will also stay back in their United States home for the Christmas holiday instead of traveling to the United Kingdom to be with other members of the royal family.
Their decision to stay back has reportedly saddened the royals, who were looking forward to catching up with baby Archie. The toddler hasn't been in the United Kingdom since last year.
