Meghan Markle loves Christmas. Before joining the Royal Family of England, the former actress had revealed her tips to make Christmas Eve go as smoothly as possible and without spending too much money.
Meghan Markle and Harry are getting ready to spend their second Christmas away from the Royal Family of England (in fact, they have already bought their tree incongnito). Due to the current pandemic, they will most likely spend the holidays in their new home in California with their son Archie and perhaps with Doria Ragland, the Duchess’s mother since she lives nearby.
The Duchess, an unconditional fan of this holiday season, will certainly do her best to make it a success. “Meghan wants to organize this very first Christmas at home with her mother,” reports a source. She is looking forward to it and plans to respect all the traditions that marked her childhood, including cooking,” a source told the Daily Mail last October.
In 2015, the Duchess of Sussex shared in the columns of Grazia her best advice to spend a good Christmas Eve … without ruining herself. For dinner, Meghan Markle proposes simplicity by asking each guest to bring a dish. She also suggests cooking between friends and family to make the moment more enjoyable. “If you don’t have a proper setup, use your dining room table or kitchen countertop as a buffet,” she added.
Meghan Markle, a decorating professional
When it comes to decoration, Meghan Markle seems to know just as much. She advises buying “silver serving trays, dishes and bowls of nuts at flea markets”. Concerning the table decoration, she assures that simplicity is the best solution: a tablecloth, a table runner and white napkins.
“Accentuate with gold plates and napkin rings, and use an elegant set of cutlery. Any white flowers placed in low vases are the perfect centerpieces,” she added. To top it all off: an unsweetened almond milk cocktail with cinnamon.
