Meghan and Harry have not confirmed whether they will spend Christmas in the United Kingdom or the states, but they may travel to Meghan's hometown of California.

They discussed the details of the "long-time trip to the US" on The HeirPod Podcast . I understand that they have celebrated Thanksgiving in private with close family, which is wonderful.

This was Meghan and Harry's first Thanksgiving as a family of three, after their son Archie was born in May.

The couple discussed dealing with public and media scrutiny, rifts among the royal family and becoming parents for the first time.

Today the couple will be absent for the Queen hosting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders at Buckingham Palace, and Royal Producer at ITV News, Lizzie Robinson, said: "We know they're away, they're not even in the country". As fans of the royals will recall, a spokesperson for Harry and Meghan confirmed last month that the couple will be skipping Christmas at Sandringham with Queen Elizabeth II this year.

And when Omid said an aide had told him the couple "welcomed the break", Lizzie went on to say they also "probably" welcomed "being away, and back home for Meghan, in the US".

Emma Stone is engaged!
Before her relationship with McCary, Stone dated her Amazing Spider-Man costar Andrew Garfrield on and off for three years. Emma Stone seems to be in " La La Land " for real, as the actress has finally got engaged to beau Dave McCary .

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now on a six-week break from royal duties, but Buckingham Palace will not confirm their whereabouts. Now, the latest reports are saying that Meghan is exhausted of being a royal and regrets giving up her Hollywood career for Harry.

Prince Harry has bravely defended Meghan this year after relentless personal press attacks have pushed the pair too far.

It was expected that the food-loving mum would do the cooking, and the family would opt to not have any staff present.

In the lead-up to Trump's June 3 visit, royal expert Duncan Larcombe said that Meghan saw her baby as a "convenient excuse" to not see Trump. She's a talented chef and takes great pleasure in bringing people together over a family meal.

OK with OK! In the magazine, Meghan wants to connect with a lot of Hollywood A-listers, but more specifically, she wants to connect with Eastwood and Spielberg to help start her career as a director. Another said, "In Europe we say "Christmas" not "holiday", wrote another. Meghan isn't used to the extreme spotlight she's been living under and Prince Harry has always been a bit of a wildcard.

Other organisations highlighted are Salvation Army UK, food bank Trussell Trust, and Scotty's Little Soldiers, who support the families of those in the armed forces.
