- Following her appearance at the Christmas Day church service in Sandringham, Meghan Markle continued to celebrate the festive season with the royal family by attending their traditional Boxing Day feast.
- Despite rumors that Prince Harry might not take part in their year’s Boxing Day hunt, the duke attended with Prince Charles and Prince William, and was joined by his wife afterwards for a meal of “cold cuts” of meat.
Rumors that Meghan Markle was unhappy that Prince Harry might be taking part in the royal family’s traditional Boxing Day hunt appear to have been fabricated.
According to royal commentator Rebecca English for the Daily Mail, Prince Harry went hunting with his father, Prince Charles, and brother, Prince William, on Boxing Day morning. Afterwards, the royal family traditionally enjoys a “Boxing Day feast” of “cold cuts,” and according to English, Meghan arrived in time for the food.
English also reports that Meghan arrived at the meal with Kate Middleton, proving that the duchesses are close and that there is no animosity between them.

The gathering apparently took place at Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate, and is allegedly where Prince Philip spends much of his time now that he is retired. The Daily Mail, reports that, according to an insider at Sandringham, the royals “went out as usual for the shoot after a hearty breakfast. A buffet is laid out of kedgeree, bacon and eggs, cereals and toast to set them up for the day. It’s cold trudging across the muddy fields so you need plenty of sustenance.”
