Christ­mas Mem­o­ries

My Weekly Special - - | Celebrity -

Like most peo­ple Meghan will al­most cer­tainly be re­call­ing Christ­mases of the past when she was grow­ing up.

“I have great mem­o­ries of my child­hood,” she said. “I am still very close to my mum, who is a re­ally spe­cial per­son, and she is my best friend. We see each other or stay in touch all the time.”

Do­ria Ragland is clearly very proud of her daugh­ter and of­fers her good ad­vice.

“Whether it is Christ­mas or any other time of the year she is still my lit­tle girl and I know she keeps her feet on the ground. That’s good.” They will both be re­mem­ber­ing past fes­tiv­i­ties – but so too will all those gath­ered at San­dring­ham. Zara Tin­dall said, “Hav­ing all the gen­er­a­tions of my fam­ily to­gether at Christ­mas is my favourite part of the season. It’s a time of year that is about be­ing with peo­ple you love, great food, and loads of games to play.”

The Princess Royal laughs ev­ery time she re­mem­bers some of the joke gifts the fam­ily tra­di­tion­ally buy each other – you ask her! Meghan joined in last year when she ner­vously bought the Queen a toy singing ham­ster that ev­ery­one thought was hi­lar­i­ous.

Great start, Meghan!

the first time at Christ­mas, and I was wor­ried what to give the Queen as her Christ­mas present. I thought back to what would I give my own grand­par­ents. And I thought, ‘I’ll make her some­thing.’ Which could have gone hor­ri­bly wrong. I de­cided to make my granny’s recipe of chut­ney. I was slightly wor­ried about it, but I no­ticed the next day that it was on the ta­ble.”
