Can Royal Spouses *Not* Spend Christmas with Their Biological Families ... Or Does It Just Seem That Way?

Just ask Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Prince William and Duchess Kate usually switch off celebrating the holidays with their families each year, but starting this year, they'll possibly no longer do this and will instead celebrate each year with the Royal Family at Queen Elizabeth's country estate Sandringham.

“Moving forward, Kate and William will continue to do Sandringham every Christmas Eve and Day as opposed to alternating like they used to,” an anonymous source claiming to have inside info on the royals told Us Weekly. The couple will visit her Middleton family "later in the festive season."

The source cited the Queen and her husband's ages as a factor in the decision.

“With the queen and Philip’s advancing ages [92 and 97, respectively], skipping years isn’t an option anymore.”

Meanwhile, the new Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle will not spend the holiday with her side of the family. It was thought that her mother Doria Ragland might join her and Prince Harry on December 25, but another source told Us Weekly that she "wasn't formally invited for this Christmas," citing tradition that usually does not include the in-laws.

The whole thing makes us wonder: Is there really not enough room at the Norfolk estate for everyone? When it comes to biological family matters, it seems they take a back seat to the throne.
