As informed by Kensington Palace, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be spending their Christmas holidays with the Queen and other Royal family members at Sandringham as an engaged couple.
The couple attended their first royal event together in the city of Nottingham earlier this month, where they were met by well-wishers.
The couple first announced their engagement in November. The couple opened up for the first time about their relationship in an interview last month when Harry told an international publication that his late mother, Princess Diana, would have been “over the moon” about the pair’s engagement.
It is also said that Harry designed their engagement ring himself. It features a diamond from Botswana accompanied by two smaller diamonds from Diana’s jewellery collection, which the Prince said he wanted to include her “to make sure she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”

However, speculations on whether the First Family of the US will be on the Royal Family’s guest list or not still exist.
Prince Harry does enjoy cordial relations with the Obama family, and he may be an expected guest to the wedding as well.
The former President of the US Barack Obama though was not invited to Prince William’s wedding due to security reason.
