...but Meghan mustn’t out­shine HM


PRINCE Harry has warned his ac­tress wife Meghan not to make a drama out of her first

Christ­mas as a fully-fledged royal – by beat­ing the Queen at cha­rades.

The for­mer Suits star has been ad­vised to play down her skills as she joins in the royal fun and games over the fes­tive sea­son. Aides re­vealed the Queen likes to give her own royal com­mand per­for­mance on Christ­mas night, when she reels off her im­per­son­ations of world lead­ers, VIPs and stars she’s met dur­ing her trav­els.

Harry is des­per­ate to make Christ­mas at San­dring­ham, his grand­mother’s Nor­folk es­tate, per­fect and has a guide of do’s and don’ts to ease Meghan into the some­times bizarre tra­di­tions.

Harry, who ar­rives in Zam­bia to­mor­row for a two-day solo of­fi­cial visit, has made sure that when Meghan and her mother Do­ria Ragland ar­rive, they will know how to nav­i­gate a Christ­mas with the roy­als. One aide ex­plained: “It can be very con­fus­ing.

“The jokes and presents are very cheesy, the life is grand, the pro­to­col is un­bend­ing and it ter­ri­fies the life out of in­com­ers.

“They don’t like show-offs, es­pe­cially new­com­ers who show off.

“The duchess has to re­sist that Amer­i­can urge to win at ev­ery­thing. The whole fam­ily likes to play cha­rades on Christ­mas night and she must never beat the Queen, who is a fine ac­tress her­self.”

Harry has also cau­tioned Meghan not to speak out against the Royal Fam­ily’s tra­di­tional Box­ing Day pheas­ant shoot.

Royal red and gold baubles, each cost­ing £34.95, yes­ter­day went on sale at the shop of Prince Charles’s High­grove res­i­dence, with prof­its go­ing to his char­ity.
