Will this be Prince Harry’s first American Christmas?

2020 is believed to be the first ever Christmas Prince Harry has spent in America.

For Christmas 2019, he spent the holidays with his family at their then rented Vancouver Island, Canada home.

When did Meghan spend Christmas with The Queen?

Meghan and Harry spent Christmas with The Queen and the British Royal Family at Sandringham in 2017 and then again in 2018.
