It is a tradition that the British royal family applies every year. Each year, relatives of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip meet at Sandringham House in Norfolk to spend the Christmas holidays. Built by Prince of Wales Edward and his wife Alexandra in 1870, this sublime private property of the royal family welcomes the Queen, the King, or even Princes William and Harry and their respective wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, every December. Prince Charles, Camille Parker Bowles as well as Zara Phillips and Mike Tindal are also in the game, not to mention the children of each.
For her entry into the British royal family, Meghan Markle had to learn very strict rules and protocol. And even if the holiday season is a special time, the young woman who was then an actress at the start of her relationship with Prince Harry was not entitled to a Christmas truce. On the contrary, Meghan Markle had to comply with new rules. According to a former Sunday Express article published in 2018, relayed by L’Express, it was Prince Harry himself who was responsible for guiding Meghan Markle during the celebrations spent with the family at Sandringham House, so that the integration of her beautiful in her family is going as well as possible.
A rather confusing advice …
According to the Sunday Express, the royal family plays the game of charades every Christmas evening, which is one of the sovereign’s favorites. For Meghan Markle to be seen well, Prince Harry would have recommended that she lower her game and try not to beat the Queen of England when the whole family is playing charades. “The Duchess must resist the American urge to win it all. The whole family loves to play charades on Christmas Eve and she must never beat the Queen, who is a beautiful actress herself,” a source told the newspaper . According to another source with The Sun, that year, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle had “put aside their differences”, so that there is no palpable tension at Sandringham House. And to everyone’s happiness, the two sisters-in-law had even played on the same team in a question-and-answer quiz game. Only that is before, because for their Christmas of 2019, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle preferred to spend the holidays in a mansion in Canada, with their son Archie.
