Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘to break royal tradition’ with their Christmas card

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly set to break royal tradition with their Christmas card.

Christmas is just over a week away, which means that fans of the royal family will be treated to their annual Christmas cards soon enough.

However, E! News reports that Meghan and Harry’s card is going to be a bit different than the other.

A source told the publication that not only are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex set to release their holiday greetings this week, but that they’re going to break royal tradition while doing so.

The couple are said to be planning for the card to feature a number of family photos, which are said to include Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland.

“Harry and Meghan are said to want [to] ensure that some of their Christmas card images reflect that Doria is very much part of their family and of Archie’s upbringing,” the insider explained.

“It is a break with protocol from traditional royal Christmas cards, which haven’t historically included grandparents. For instance, Kate’s parents—Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton—have never appeared on any of their Christmas card images.”

 The royal family typically celebrates the holiday season at Sandringham with the Queen.

However, this year, Meghan, Prince Harry and Archie will be celebrating Christmas with the duchess’ mum Doria Ragland.
