Meghan Markle’s mum could be spending Christmas Day with the Royal Family after claims the Queen extended the invite to her new in-law. Just months on from the Royal Wedding, Doria Ragland has reportedly been asked to Sandringham, Her Majesty’s country estate in Norfolk.
A senior royal source said the offer was a “very thoughtful gesture” – and an unusual one. Kate Middleton’s family has previously been invited to the Christmas morning church service, but have preferred to celebrate the day at the Cambridges’ home in Anmer Hall.
Speaking to the Daily Express, the source said: “It’s a mark of the Queen’s respect for Meghan and an acknowledgement that she doesn’t have any other relations in this country – unlike Kate who has the support of a very close family.”
Doria Ragland’s calm, warm demeanour appears to have impressed the Palace, after she was seen chatting away to her in-laws at the Royal Wedding. She is known to be very close to Meghan, 37, and is said to even be planning a return to London to help with her new grandchild in the New Year. The 62-year-old from Cleveland, Ohio, has been described by the Duchess of Sussex as a “free-spirited clinical therapist” who often took her travelling to remote places when she was younger.

In an upcoming episode of Sunday Today, host Willie Geist asks the actor, 47, if his wife, Rhea Durham, and kids (Ella Rae, 15, Michael, 12, Brendan Joseph, 10, and Grace Margaret, 8) like the song.
“I was at a football game — my son’s game — last week,” Wahlberg says. “In the middle of the game, they start playing ‘Good Vibrations’. My wife is just cracking up laughing, but she’s looking at my son who’s basically burying his head in his helmet.”
“It’s fine for me,” he adds. “I don’t want to make their life any more difficult. My past is not their burden to bear.”
“They give Justin Bieber a hard time,” Wahlberg said during an awkwardly funny appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2014. “I was an absolute train wreck. Wow.”
Justin, who is already very inked up, got a tattoo with his new wife Hailey Baldwin. Tattoo artist Bang Bang, aka Keith McCurdy, did the tats, and he told Page Six, “They each got a tattoo. Justin’s tattoo is on his face, and I haven’t seen any photos of it, so he’s doing a good job of laying low.”
Bang Bang also revealed a little bit about the tattoo saying “It’s really thin and delicate. And [it’s] also not a traditional couples’ tattoo.” He added that the tattoo was next to Justin’s eyebrow and consists of little words.
Bang Bang didn’t share when the couple got these tattoos though, and some people suspect that it might be this mark above Justin’s brow that was seen in July:
That said, Justin has been wearing a lot of hats lately (see below), so it’s possible that he’ll walk outside without a hat one day and will have “I love Hailey” tattooed across his hairline.
