Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family for traditional Christmas Day service at the Queen’s Norfolk estate.

The 36-year-old walked arm-in-arm with Prince Harry as they arrived for carol service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It marked the first time the Royals included someone who was not yet a part of the family in the service.
