Indeed, if one believes the confidences d'Adam Helliker, a reporter from the Express UK, Her Majesty would have invited the mother of Meghan Markle to celebrate the end of the year holidays with all the royal family.
In previous years, Princess Anne has gifted brother Charles a leather toilet seat, Kate has bought Harry a "grow-your-own girlfriend" kit and the Queen has receiced a shower cap that reads "Ain't Life a Bitch!" from grandson Harry.
"It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgment that she doesn't have any other relations in this country - unlike Kate who has the support of a very close family", a source tells the United Kingdom outlet.
The invitation would would break with royal precedent. "Normally, the protocol is pretty strict".
The 62-year-old, who now lives in Los Angeles, has been described by the Duchess of Sussex as a "free-spirited clinical therapist" who often took her travelling to remote places when she was younger.
Buckingham Palace told The Sun Online they were unable to comment on private matters concerning the royal family. One of the biggest changes that Meghan has experienced over the past year now becomes more relevant and important than ever before-her activity and involvement in anything political.
However, LA-born Meghan knows the importance of using her vote, and only last week gave a powerful speech about women's right to do so while in New Zealand ahead of the United States elections on Tuesday. However, they have previously attended Christmas day church services with the Queen and the rest of the family.
Meghan and her mum, Doria Ragland, are said to have a close relationship.
It's really nice of the Queen to invite Meghan's mother to join them during the duchess' first Christmas as a member of the royal family.
Doria was also invited to tea at Windsor when the planned wedding of Megan and Prince Harry.
