While Kate's family has joined them at church on Christmas morning, they've never stayed at the Norfolk estate.

Many have already begun to prepare for Christmas, including the Royal family!

Last year she invited the then newly engaged actress to spend Christmas with the royals, breaking years of tradition that decreed only those who had married immediate members of the royal family could join them at the lunch table.

The investigation used statistics to source the most influential royal family member in terms of fashion, and narrowed it down to Kate and Meghan-though the numbers showed the Duchess of Cambridge has a slightly stronger fashion influence than her sister-in-law. In her hotel room remained mum Doria Raglan.

However, LA-born Meghan knows the importance of using her vote, and only last week gave a powerful speech about women's right to do so while in New Zealand ahead of the USA elections on Tuesday.

Bryant's presence in New Orleans figures to boost a passing offense that already ranks as one of the top ten best in the NFL. Since that banner year, Bryant has posted just 150 catches, 2,035 yards and 17 touchdowns over the past three seasons.

Sources say the Monarch has made the "very thoughtful gesture" towards Ragland because she respects her so much. But, interestingly, the duchess's office at Kensington Palace refused to comment on whether she had voted in the midterms.

Doria took her place beside her new extended family in the official wedding portraits. Before extending the unprecedented invitation, the Queen likely considered the fact that Meghan Markle is pregnant for the first time and away from her mother, whereas Kate has had access to her mother throughout her pregnancies. However, Megan has American roots and always dreamt of a ceremony in honor of the birth of his first child.

Mr Markle was due to walk his daughter down the aisle but pulled out at the last minute after it emerged he had staged paparazzi pictures in the days prior to it.

He also expressed a fear he could die soon and that it was the longest he and Meghan had gone without speaking.
