Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were met by hundreds of well-wishers as they turned out for the British royal family’s traditional Christmas Day church service Monday.
The pair, who announced their engagement last month, joined Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, as well as other family members at Sandringham, the Queen’s country estate in rural Norfolk, around 100 miles north of London.
According to British media, it is the first time someone who has yet to marry into the Royal Family has been invited to take part in the celebrations.
Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry walk to church.
The pair walked arm-in-arm along with Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The Queen, dressed in red, led the family into St. Mary Magdalene Chapel.
Last year was the first time since she began spending Christmas at Sandringham in 1988 that the Queen had missed a Christmas Day service during that period after being diagnosed with a “heavy cold.”
