Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first Christmas as a married royal couple continued this morning with the royal family’s tradition of appearing together at Christmas morning service in Norfolk. This is Meghan’s second year joining in but first as a full-fledge family member. For the occasion, she wore a navy dress, coat and matching, feathered fascinator. She walked alongside Harry and Kate Middleton in photos taken of them arriving at the church.
She and the Duchess of Cambridge showed an especially united front, further putting feud rumors to bed:
Meghan and Harry are staying at Sandringham House this year, not at the nearby Anmer Hall, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s residence on the Sandringham estate, where they stayed with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last year. Then, Meghan’s invitation to royal Christmas period was exceptional, so her invitation to stay at the Queen’s estate this year is just a perk of her official royal family membership.
Last year for Christmas service, Meghan wore an outfit worth over $9,638. The Duchess of Sussex wore a camel Sentaler coat, small brown Chloé bag, Stuart Weitzman boots, Birks diamond snowflake earrings, gloves, and a fancy fascinator-like brown hat by Philip Treacy then.
This isn’t Meghan and Harry’s first time being photographed out during the royal family’s Christmas celebrations this year. Before they went to Norfolk, the couple attended the Queen’s pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. The two were shot in the car driving over, Meghan in diamond earrings and an Erdem dress.
