Meghan Markle will spend Christmas with her new fiancé Prince Harry at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

Ms Markle will join other members of the royal family, including the Queen, for the traditional Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene Church.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will also be part of the congregation.

Interestingly, the move is a bit of a break from tradition with royal partners normally having to wait until they're married to be allowed to spend Christmas with the Queen - as was the case in 2010 when the Duchess of Cambridge wasn't invited to attend the ceremony despite officially getting engaged to Prince William the month before.

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

Ms Markle and Prince Harry got engaged on November 27, and her first public engagement was during a series of events in Nottingham.
