Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won’t be making an appearance this year at the Queen’s annual pre-Christmas celebrations.
The pair have already opted not to spend Christmas Day with the extended royal family, but now it looks like they’re also skipping out on two holiday traditions.
Reportedly, the Royal duo will spend their time racking up some much-needed family time.
Queen Elizabeth has two different parties ahead of Christmas Day. One event is meant as a thank you for the Buckingham Palace staff for their hard work year after year. The other is a lavish lunch at the Palace that the entire Royal family attends.
The staff party is scheduled for December 16 and the lunch is meant to happen on Wednesday, December 18. It seems like Meghan and Harry won’t be in attendance there.
“The Sussexes are away, they’re on their break right up until Christmas. They celebrated Thanksgiving privately with close family, which is lovely,” Scobie explained.
“It’s a longtime trip that they’re on. I think we are really going to see them away until Christmas, as far as I’m aware, which is good for them.”
