Won’t be easy for her!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be spending Christmas in Sandringham with the rest of the royal family.

In fact, it has been rumoured that Meghan Markle’s mum, Doria Ragland, has also been invited.

And for the the most part, it will be your typical family Christmas (but a little more lavish, no doubt.)

However, there is one royal family Christmas tradition that won’t sit well with Meghan.

As we all know, Meghan Markle is an animal lover, and has been called an activist in the past.

Meghan’s lovely husband Harry, has reportedly cautioned her not to speak out against the Royal Family’s customary Christmas pheasant shoot.

The shoot, which occurs after breakfast, is a Royal tradition on Boxing Day.

Actually, a hunt on the 26th of December is not just a royal tradition, with many people living in rural areas taking part.

Earlier this year, Prince Harry made the decision to boycott the Royal Balmoral hunt, possibly to avoid upsetting Meghan Markle.

At the time, a source close to the family told The Sun: “Harry loves hunting and has always been out there on Boxing Day.”

“But if it means breaking with long-standing Royal traditions to avoid upsetting Meghan, so be it.”

We’ll have to wait and see!
