The royals usually exchange gifts on Christmas Eve and attend a church service at St. Mary Magadalene Church on Christmas Day before enjoying a gala lunch and, sometimes, a walk in the woods.

The palace says, “you can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day.”

Prince Harry and Markle announced their engagement Nov. 27. They plan to get married in May 2018 and will reside at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, where their neighbours will be Prince William and Kate Middleton.
