This Is Why Harry & Meghan Skipped the Queen's Diplomatic Reception

This Is Why Harry & Meghan Skipped the Queen's Diplomatic Reception

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not among the attendees at the ultra-formal event, but they had a good excuse.

While the former makes for juicy headlines, analyses and hot takes, the latter also means that there is an inevitable upsurge of royal style.

"This never happened", The Sun quoted a Kensington Palace spokesman as saying, in response to argument claims.

After enjoying what was surely a delightful evening, Kate and her husband, Prince William, were back to business on Wednesday morning, jetting to Cyprus to meet with Royal Air Force service members stationed there, ahead of the holidays. When asked for comment on the allegation that the whole tense almost year-long argument between the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex began when Meghan spoke rudely to one of Kate's staff and Kate had a go at her for it, Kensington Palace simply told The Sun: 'This never happened'.

Rumours had been circulating they were preparing to shun Norfolk to spend the festive season with the Middletons in Berkshire.

Prior to her engagement to the Duke of Sussex, she had already been a vocal campaigner about a number of causes throughout her acting career, including female empowerment - a passion shared by Mrs Obama.

There have been allegations of a dispute over who reprimands staff, as well as tensions during Princess Charlotte's bridesmaid dress fitting.

The couple, who hosted a Christmas party for military families at Kensington Palace earlier in the day, chatted with members of the diplomatic corps after arriving.

This year's stunning Christmas display can be seen in a video posted on the Royal Family's social media pages, which shows just how serious the Queen is about Christmas.

The site claimed the Duchess of Sussex's mom, Doria Ragland, might be joining the royals. "And I think Meghan could maximize her impact for others, as well her own happiness, if she's doing something that resonates with her personally".

Meghan is understood to be around five months pregnant with her and Harry's first child.
