Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will spend this Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham, having turned down the option to stay at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Norfolk home, The Sun reported, citing an unnamed royal source.
“There’s not a huge amount of room at Sandringham so it’s quite surprising. Maybe they just want their own space. Things are civil between the couples but they don’t spend much time together”, the source claimed.
The report comes amid a rumoured spat between the royal siblings, as The Sun claimed that Prince Harry had once accused William of spoiling his relationship with Meghan.
Other alleged details of the boiling conflict suggest that Meghan left Kate in tears prior to the royal wedding in May – all because of Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress.
On Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a black-and-white photograph from their wedding that would be featured on their 2018 Christmas card.
