Queen invites Meghan Markle's mother to spend Christmas with the royal family

The same profile also reveals that the Duchess of Cornwall (and her husband Prince Charles) were early supporters of Prince Harry's marriage to Meghan Markle.

The source added: "Queen Elizabeth is very aware of all the problems Meghan has had with her dad and sister and she feels sorry for her that she doesn't have family and a support network close by".

Doria cut a casual appearance in a pair of cream pants and in light of the warm weather, did away with a jacket wearing a simple grey t-shirt.

Meghan Markle is gearing up for her second Christmas at Sandringham, the first she'll attend with Prince Harry as an official member of the Royal Family and with their "little bump" in tow.

The source is reported to have said that the Queen's invitation showed respect and acknowledged that Meghan would be spending Christmas away from family in Britain.

Meghan and her mother have remained notably close, while Megan's relationship with her father, Thomas Markle, remains strained.

She was also in London in September to join Meghan for the launch of a charity cookbook at Kensington Palace.
