Last month, Buckingham Palace issued a statement confirming that Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and her son Archie would not be coming to Sandringham for Christmas to the Queen and other members of the royal family. Following the publication of the statement, it was reported that the Sussexes had decided to spend the festive season in the United States with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland. But a royal expert has hinted that Meghan and Harry have actually decided to celebrate Christmas in England.

The royal expert Omid Scobie suggested that the royal couple spend the festivities in the UK, while he recently recorded The HeirPod in his podcast.

He dropped the clue as he talked about Meghan's and Harry's recent trip to the United States for Thanksgiving.

Mr. Scobie said, "When we record that, the Sussexes are gone, they're in recess until Christmas.

"I understand that they were celebrating Thanksgiving privately with a close family, which is very nice."

The royal expert said the couple spent "by Christmas" time in the States, suggesting that the Sussex could return to celebrate the festive season at their home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

The royal family's official statement did not specify where Meghan and Harry would spend Christmas.

It merely said that the couple had decided to spend Christmas with the Duchess's American mother, which prompted speculation that they would celebrate the state festival.

The statement read: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extending their family time towards the end of this month.

Older members of the royal family usually spend the holidays in the house of the Queen of Norfolk. However, it is not uncommon for royal couples to decide to spend Christmas with their parents-in-law.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William left the 2012 Sandringham celebrations and instead visited the Middleton Family on Christmas day.

The couple was to be seen in the church in Englefield, about 8 miles from the home of the Middleton family, with Mike, Carole, Pippa and James Middleton.

A spokesman for St. James's Palace said, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend Christmas Day privately with the Middleton family."

Harry also missed Christmas Day in Sandringham the same year he was on active duty in Afghanistan.

This year, Meghan and Harry celebrate the first Christmas as parents after welcoming Baby Archie to the world on May 6th.
