I think she'd quite like country life, shooting or not.

That's great news. She should mesh well with the outdoorsy BRF.

I got the impression she spent most of her life in the city (LA or wherever it was ..she has talked about going every day to the tv sitcom set her dad was involved in).

I'm just making a wild guess, based on no facts, but I doubt they're spending Christmas time together. I think Meghan visited Harry now, because they aren't spending it together. I read somewhere, that they might go on holiday after Christmas, maybe spend New Year together. That sounds more realistic IMO than them joining William, Kate, the kids and Middletons. IMO only, of course.

I think it may be a case of "what happens at Anmer, stays at Anmer". The grounds are pretty much off limits to the public and photographers (there is even a no-fly zone) and they would be very wary of repercussions of taking pictures or printing stories of what happens on their private grounds. The same applies to Balmoral, I believe.

Its very rare that we hear of people that have come and gone at Anmer for any kind of reason. It has to do with the Cambridges drawing the line in the sand between public and private.

As careful as W&K are with privacy and their children...I would be surprised to see someone relatively new to Harry's life be allowed 'in'. They've all been burned before by what they thought were close friends.

I agree. Especially considering how close Kate is to her siblings. I have no doubt that Donna and James have both met the couple often. There is a difference between being invited to a public occasion like a royal christening, and having dinner at their private home. I am sure when James and pippa marry he will be seen at more, like if Kate and will have a third child, at the baptism.

It's long tradition that the only people invited to sandringham for Christmas are at least engaged. But Amner is different. The middletons are invited, so Kate and will cN participate in the official royal Christmas events but still celebrate with her family. This is a balance others like Camilla likely wish for.

Harry doesn't have his own home there. It doesnt seem odd he may bring Meghan with him. I doubt actually during Christmas but perhaps avfewvdays before. I agree, I think she is likely to be home for Christmas, that she is there now because they don't be together on the actual holiday. It wouldn't be ,u h for them to spend a night or two at Amner. Meghan is not a dangerous stranger, I doubt the Cambridges mind her around their kids, sure they want to meet uncle Harry's friend. It is different then taking her to stay with dad and stepmom which may be a huge step right now.

I disagree. I think we have a good idea of who's invited. For George's 2nd Birthday at Anmer we know Prince Philip and his friend Penny attended. We know the Middletons attended without girlfriend Donna, and without then-boyfriend Nico. We know Harry wasn't there.

When the Middletons were at Anmer for Christmas 2014, we know from pictures that Donna and Nico weren't there.

When Catherine turned 34 this last January, and had a small party at Anmer, we know her friends the Meades, Bakers, and Ms. Carter attended. We know the Middletons were there but boyfriend James Matthews and girlfriend Donna Air weren't there.

There is a very clear pattern of siblings' spouses not getting invites to family gatherings at Anmer.

This sounds the most sensible to me too. We have to remember that Meghan also has family she probably wants to spend the holidays with too. Its kind of nice when you think about the holiday season being quite an extended period of time.

This is a version of what I expect as well - she is in London this week and having a lovely Christmas holiday with her boyfriend - will return to US or Canada next week to spend time with her family and Harry & Meghan will probably meet somewhere warm after Boxing Day for a lovely holiday.

I think the scenario of Meghan staying at Anmer Hall is an odd one for their first holiday together as it would still require Harry leaving her at certain times to go to Sandringham with the royal family... specifically Christmas Eve and walking into Christmas Day Services. The Middletons are there as a family and used to the protocal - but as a new girlfriend I would feel really awkward being left behind. Having this special time together now is a great way to avoid putting Meghan in that uncomfortable position.

Harry is a Prince where any future royal children are raised is a subject that is also often discussed in other royal family's threads. Sweden for one.

Yes, Meghan is definitley an L.A. girl through and through but also seems to love nature/the outdoors. I think her father came from Pennsylvania but I don't believe she was able to visit there much.
Those jean overalls were actually the height of 90's teen fashion, especially when worn with a flannel shirt tied around the waist and a pair of doc martens. The 90's, man.

I'm with you. Christmas Eve is royals opening presents. Christmas Day is going to church. Meghan as the girlfriend wouldn't be going to Christmas Eve. If she went to church Christmas Day, that becomes the story so she is going to hang with complete strangers the Middletons on Christmas Eve and then stay behind with Nanny Maria when everyone else goes to church or spend the holiday with her own family? I'm betting she goes to her own family.

Hey, if people want to go full-delusional, in addition to Meghan being invited to Anmer for Christmas why not also invite the Parker-Bowles and Lopes families to stay at Anmer, too. That way Meghan won't be ditched by herself. Just think while all the HRHs are at Sandringham with HM. The Middleton family, Meghan, and Camilla's children and grandchildren can all party at Anmer and maybe teepee the house with toilet paper to surprise the Cambridges when they return from Sandringham.

Yeah, but why go into all this talk about big break ups and who's going getting custody of the kids, when this couple is just dating and trying to see where things are going to go?

I won't click on that trash, but 80 years ago Bertie was King. He was pretty open-minded with marriages. He let Elizabeth marry Philip despite the Nazi connections with Philips in-laws. He let his nephew marry a jewish woman. It was said he couldn't deny Margaret anything, had he lived longer I think he would have approved her marriage to divorcee Peter Townsend, and fought for her against the the government powers that be. So I guess what I'm saying is, I think it's real tacky that the DM is slating Bertie like this, or so I presume as I won't click on that nonsense.

You named only three events. What about the other 200 some odd days of the year the Cambridges are at Anmer? I doubt those were the only times the Middletons gathered at Anmer.

To bring this back on topic, I agree with the others that there is no chance of Meghan showing up at Sandringham for Christmas. Too much too soon

No matter how open minded Albert was, I doubt he would have let one of his sons marry an American actress who was also half-black and a divorcee to boot.

Piers Morgan bragging again about being 'friends' with Meghan. If anything dooms this relationship, a friendship with the former editor of News of the World and Daily Mirror will be on top of the list.

Remember when Piers was asked by the BBC, "Why can't you just leave Prince Harry alone?" (Piers was Harry's chief tormentor back in the Nazi fancy dress days)

I just hope everyone keep in mind; the British royal family of today is totally different from the British royal family of the past. From The Queen and Prince Philip, on down, the family are very warm and welcoming to boyfriends and girlfriends. I'm sure if things become very serious between Harry and Meghan, the family will welcome Meghan into the family. I'm sure they are happy for Harry right now and respect his love life.

I think this couple will spend Christmas with their own families. There could be a vacation in for them soon too. I guess it depends if they're planning one and if their schedules permit them to do so.

I would do anything to get out of this bitter cold and go somewhere warm with my sweetheart.
