Meghan Markle and Harry are preparing to spend their second Christmas away from the royal family of England (by the way, they have already bought their incongnito tree). Due to the current pandemic, they will most certainly be spending the holidays in their new home in California with their son Archie and possibly, with Doria Ragland, the Duchess’ mother since she lives nearby. The Duchess, unconditional fan of this end of year party, will certainly do her best to make it go as well as possible. “Meghan is keen to organize this very first Christmas at home with her mother, reports a source. She is eager and plans to respect all the traditions that marked her childhood, including in the kitchen,” a source told the Daily Mail in October latest.
In 2015, the Duchess of Sussex shared in the columns of Grazia her best advice for having a good New Year’s Eve … without breaking the bank. For dinner, Meghan Markle offers simplicity by asking each of the guests to bring a dish. She also offers to cook with relatives to make the moment more pleasant. “If you don’t have a suitable setup, use your dining table or kitchen counter as a sideboard,” she added.
Meghan Markle, a decoration pro
Regarding decoration, Meghan Markle seems to know just as much. She advises buying “silver serving platters, platters and bowls of nuts at flea markets.” Regarding the table ornament, she ensures that simplicity is the best solution: a tablecloth, a table runner and napkins in white color. “Accent with golden plates and napkin rings, and use an elegant set of cutlery. All white flowers placed in low vases are the perfect centerpieces,” she added. To top it off: an unsweetened almond milk cocktail with cinnamon.
