Sources claim that The Sussexes will not join the Queen for her first Christmas without Prince Philip.
This year will be the first Christmas since the death of the Queen’s “strength and stay” Prince Philip in April.
The Palace did invite Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, to join them for their traditional Christmas Day festivities in Sandringham, but they are set to decline, Page Six sources understand.
One insider said: “There’s a lot that goes into the logistics and the planning of the family Christmas, so of course, staff know that Harry and Meghan are not coming.
“If they were, they would have communicated it to their family by now.
“But this is Her Majesty’s first Christmas without her husband, so one would have hoped they would want to be with her.”
