Doria Ragland got to know the royals including Prince Charles and Camilla at Meghan and Harry's wedding in May

Now, with the former actress having no immediate family to share her new life with, her majesty has reportedly made a decision to invite her mom, Doria Ragland (62), to spend Christmas at her private country house in Sandringham, England, Daily Mail reports.

The Daily Mail reported Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, has been invited to spend Christmas in Sandringham with Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family.

A source added: "She has never been asked to join the royal household for Christmas, and she would love to be regarded as part of the royal family".

Kate Middleton's family has joined the royals at church on Christmas morning previously but have stayed at nearby Anmer Hall rather than Sandringham itself. And according to the Sunday Express, the Queen has broken protocol again by inviting Doria to Christmas dinner this year.

State ballot measures to watch on Election Night
The measures differ on some details, like how much to tax medical pot and whether patients are allowed to grow their own plants. If two or more of the measures pass, it's likely that the measure that receives the most votes will go into effect.

"Doria's quiet dignity and grace at the Royal wedding has earned her enormous respect from Meghan's new in-laws", the source tells ET.

She reportedly said she was "head over heels" with pride as Meghan helped prepare lunch for guests. "She has been to Meghan and Harry's home in the Cotswolds several times and she has stayed with them at Nottingham Cottage". Meghan Markle rocked an electric blue ensemble from her wedding dress designer Givenchy - but what most style spotters failed to notice was that the fabulous pleated skirt that she combined with the matching sweater was see-through!

And she also told the couple she wanted to spend the holidays with them too.
