How Meghan Markle is transforming the Royal Family, by RICHARD KAY: Kate, Camilla and Diana all had to wait... but Harry's fiancee is the first unmarried partner to have Christmas lunch with the QUEEN

Step by elegant step, Meghan Markle is transforming the Royal Family. Yesterday’s announcement by Buckingham Palace that Prince Harry’s fiancee will join the Queen for Christmas at Sandringham and attend the traditional church service is not just a benevolent gesture from monarch to a much-loved grandson.
Instead, it represents a sea change in the Victorian attitudes which for so long have coloured the royal approach to modern life. No such invitation was extended to Kate Middleton, nor to Camilla Parker Bowles — and certainly not to Lady Diana Spencer — before they married into the family.
But it is the manner in which Meghan is being fast-tracked into royal life long before her wedding that is so startling. For I can reveal that earlier this week the American actress had another unusual starring role — accompanying Harry and the Queen to the Royal Household Christmas party hosted by the Lord Chamberlain at Windsor Castle.

In a more intimate re-run of her first engagement, at Harry’s side in Nottingham earlier this month, Meghan plunged into a sea of welcoming faces gathered in the castle’s great reception rooms.
This time they were footmen, housemaids, butlers and pages, the domestic staff and gardeners who keep Buckingham Palace and the other royal residences ticking over. While the Queen, escorted by Prince Andrew and her cousins the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent, was greeted with affection, all eyes inevitably were on the smiling figure of Meghan.
Wearing a burgundy lacy cocktail dress, demurely cut just below the knee, she moved easily though the crowd of well-wishers just as she had a fortnight earlier, accepting congratulations from the men and women who in a few months’ time will address her as ‘Your Royal Highness’.
At the party, the formality was kept to a minimum with handshakes rather than curtsies. ‘She asked everyone she met their names and what they did,’ one guest told me. ‘It was very natural.’
Just as he had in Nottingham, Harry showed his confidence in her by allowing her to work her part of the room alone.
As the 900 guests sipped flutes of Mumm champagne or Sandringham apple juice, Meghan, who didn’t drink, circulated through the Waterloo Chamber, St George’s Hall and the Grand Reception Room where her own wedding reception will be held next May. It took her more than an hour.
In fact, Meghan disclosed that she and Harry had spent last weekend at Windsor looking over the state rooms as they began making plans for the wedding. Clearly the benefit of being at Monday night’s party was to experience what the same rooms are like when they are full of people.

Yoooper, the Royal Windsor Horse Show will be at Windsor from May 9th - 13th, 2018, so they won't be able to get married at Windsor Castle before May 12th.

The thing the writer forgets is that Diana Spencer lived at Buckingham Palace during the engagement.  She was among the royals in her own suite.

^I've never knew of a Royal Household Christmas Party before.

These articles drive me crazy, the constant nagging about how Meghan is changing things. It's the press that make us dislike the Royals because of their ridiculous headlines and presumptions. Of course, she was very natural talking to people, how else would she be - unnatural? What exactly does that mean when people say she was talking "natural?" Oy  sly

and she was utterly miserable there... and it wasnt just camilla... according to diana the holidays in sandringham and balmoral for next 10 years were the most stressful time of year to her (it had nothing to do with camilla)... i respect more kate for choosing her family over his ... meghan appears to be close to her mom... she choice the queen/her in-laws (because they are HRH and famous $$$ people) instead of her mom is a  bignono IMO it shows nothing nice about Meghan... the way william and kate have talked about the engagement seems me they dont think harry is doing the right thing

---

i suppose their wedding will happen soon after Royal Windsor Horse Show, maybe before May 20

If Kate and Will are judgmental about Meghan I find this laughable. There is Kate's Uncle Gary for one thing, and the wardrobe malfunctions of Kate on those royal tours and Kate taking sporadic jobs and waiting for that ring.  

I never heard Kate and Will saying anything negative about Meghan. IN any case it is none of their business who Harry chooses as his bride. ANd she is engaged to Harry now.

No matter where Diana was during the marriage, Camilla always caused her stress. She was not going away. DIana said the fights with Charles were about Camilla.

wasnt harry who used call kate a limpet? i'm afraid he made his bed about william and kate not liking his choice behind the scenes

BTW i dont said they said anything bad about her ... just they dont appeared excited at all about her... being in sandringham and balmoral caused diana stress, according to her own words (it was about the in-laws and the environment there)...

i've read this wedding is NOT considered a semi-state affair (like the william & kate's)... if true... it speaks volumes IMO... I believe if it was chelsy or cressida that will be a different story

Is this absolutely correct? Meghan wants her mother to give her away.

Some people have both parents give the bride away or the mom if she is more involved with the child. I thought it was ridiculous for the hiding father to give her away, the second time. Shouldn't her ex give her away? Oh he did that already. No one should give a divorced woman away except her child. She didn't resort back to her parents when she divorced her ex.

I know it’s traditional, and understand the historical reasons behind it, but does she really need someone to ‘give her away’.

Especially with her being divorced and “independent”.
