Duchess Kate and Meghan Markle pictured together for the first time

Meghan dazzles in her first appearance at a royal Christmas

Royal watchers went into a spin yesterday when Meghan Markle made her first appearance at a Royal Christmas.

The Royal Family, including Prince William and a pregnant Duchess Catherine, visited the Church of St. Mary Magdalene for the traditional Christmas morning service.

Prince Harry's fiancee looked relaxed amongst royalty and commoners alike.

The occasion was notable for two reasons. It's the first time a partner of a royal has been allowed to attend a Christmas gathering before the wedding. And it's also the first time Meghan been pictured with the Duchess of Cambridge.

Meghan, 36, and her groom-to-be Prince Harry, 33, walked alongside Wills and Kate.

Harry's young niece and nephew, four-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte, skipped the outing and stayed home.

Meghan made a very stylish Sandringham debut, donning a camel coat by Sentaler teamed with a brown hat and matching brown boots and a Chloe 'Pixie' bag.

Proving she has princess perfection down pat, Meghan's hair was impeccably blow dried, showing off her shiny tresses.

"You can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day." Meghan's invitation marks a break in tradition for the royals, making her the first "non-spouse" to attend the family gathering.
