Queen invites Meghan Markle's mother to spend Christmas with the royal family

It's been widely reported how much the Royal family - particularly Queen Elizabeth - loves Meghan Markle and her mother Doria Ragland.

"Doria's quiet dignity and grace at the Royal wedding has earned her enormous respect from Meghan's new in-laws", the source tells ET.

Just days ago, Meghan Markle delivered a powerful speech about women's suffrage, and many are speculating whether the U.S. citizen practiced what she preached on Election Day Tuesday.

The Duchess of Cambridge's family has joined the royals at church on Christmas morning but they have stayed at nearby Anmer Hall rather than Sandringham itself. "It's a mark of the Queen's respect for Meghan and an acknowledgement that she doesn't have any other relations in this country-unlike Kate, who has the support of a very close family", a senior royal source reportedly told the Daily Express. In her hotel room remained mum Doria Raglan.

Doria took her place beside her new extended family in the official wedding portraits. In addition to having established a relationship very complicit with prince Charles, the former actress of the series Suits can boast of being close to the queen Elizabeth II.

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.

Mr Markle pulled out because of health problems just days before she was due to walk down the aisle and admitted he had staged paparazzi pictures. A shrewd move, it went a long way to impressing the mom of Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and 7-month-old Prince Louis who offered her blessing and council in return. Her office at Kensington Palace has declined all requests to remark on the matter.
