Washington DC [USA], Dec 14 (ANI): Meghan Markle is all set to spend her Christmas with the royal family.

According to E! Online, Markle and Prince Harry will spend their first Christmas as an engaged couple with Queen Elizabeth and other members of Britain's royal family.

"You can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day," said a Kensington Palace spokesperson.

The royals usually exchange gifts on Christmas Eve and attend a church service at St. Mary Magadalene Church on Christmas Day before enjoying a gala lunch and, sometimes, a walk in the woods.

The Queen was forced to miss last year's Christmas Day service because of a "heavy cold." It was the first such service she had missed since she began celebrating Christmas at Sandringham in 1988.

Prince Harry and Markle announced their engagement on November 27. They plan to get married in May 2018 and will reside at Nottingham Cottage in the Kensington Palace.

The couple will tie the knot at Windsor Castle in May. (ANI)
