Christmas is a logistical nightmare.
From working out how to split time between family and friends to the important discussion of who is going to bring the pavlova, it’s hard work.
But for the royal family, Christmas is a very different affair.
When it was speculated earlier this year that Meghan Markle’s mother Doria Ragland would be joining the family at Sandringham House, it’s safe to say some royal experts were shocked.
After all, Prince William’s in-laws, the Middleton family, don’t share Christmas with the royals either.
Now, after months of speculation, a palace spokesperson has responded to the rumours.
"This is not something that we're commenting on; however, we have previously guided that reports suggesting Ms Ragland is spending Christmas in Norfolk are made up," the spokesperson said, according to Fox News.
