It is a short walk to the church from the Queen's Sandringham home, where the Royal Family traditionally spends Christmas and New Year.

"When Kate got to the checkouts I plucked up courage to ask if she'd do a selfie with me and my kids".

This arrangement is different from past year, when the then-engaged Markle and Harry were invited to stay with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Anmer Hall.

However, the separation is not due to the reported tension between Kate and Meghan, but rather it's because the Queen's home is now at capacity - according to The Daily Mail.

And while viewers at home loved listening to the Queen's heartfelt speech, many couldn't help notice the attractive family portraits that were positioned on a table next to her. The couples also stayed in different locations for Christmas. But the pair dispelled the rumours this morning as they arrived for the Christmas Day service at Church of St Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham estate.

According to reports, the Queen's husband, Prince Phillip, will not be present at the church this year, but according to a Reuters source he is in "perfectly good health".

Despite her pleas to quiet them, the duchess' estranged father, Thomas Markle, half-brother, Thomas Markle, Jr. and half-sister, Samantha Markle have done everything in their power to humiliate and embarrass her.
