  • Doria Ragland got to know the royals including Prince Charles and Camilla at Meghan and Harry's wedding in May

Queen Elizabeth has invited Meghan Markle's mother to spend the holiday with the royal family at Sandringham, according to The Daily Mail.

Kate Middleton's family has joined the royals at church on Christmas morning previously but have stayed at nearby Anmer Hall rather than Sandringham itself.

Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly invited Doria Ragland over to Great Britain for Christmas.

Doria, 62, the only member of Meghan's family to attend her wedding to Prince Harry at Windsor Castle in May, has reportedly been asked along as a "mark of respect". The Queen had broken protocol for Markle before by inviting her to Sandringham activities when she was engaged to Prince Harry.

"She has been to Meghan and Harry's home in the Cotswolds several times and she has stayed with them at Nottingham Cottage. They speak on the phone pretty much every day and they are talking about Doria getting a place in the U.K.so that she can spend part of the year over here".

It has been said the the Queen was very taken with Doria following the royal wedding.

According to an insider, the invitation was meant as a "thoughtful gesture" to the 37-year-old, who is now pregnant with her first child.

Kate Middleton's mother Carol Middleton reportedly felt snubbed.
