Meghan Markle joins The Royal Family at Church for Christmas Day Service

The Royal Family have attended the traditional Christmas Day Church Service at St Mary Magdalene Church on the Sandringham Estate.

This Christmas, they are joined by a new face as Prince Harry’s fiancee, Meghan Markle, attended the service alongside her soon to be in-laws and relatives.

Harry and Meghan arrived at Church besides the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as they followed The Queen and Prince Philip into the building.

The newly engaged couple were linking arms as they walked to Church. Meghan was wearing a cream coat with a brown hat.

Members of The Royal Family arrived at Sandringham a couple of days ago.

On Christmas Eve, the family exchanged presents – though, by convention, gifts tend to be humorous and not of material value, with The Queen wishing to retain the core values of family at Christmas.

Christmas day itself consisted of breakfast before they set off to the annual Christmas church service with the whole family. The family will later return to the house before the traditional Christmas dinner is served.

Guests will then sit down to watch The Queen’s Christmas message on television at 3pm, with The Queen apparently leaving the room to watch it alone.

Members of the Royal Family will stay with The Queen at Sandringham until at least Boxing Day when the traditional Boxing Day shoot takes place. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will remain at Sandringham until after Accession Day (6th February), with the Duke typically staying on longer than Her Majesty.
