Meghan Markle and Prince Harry today celebrate the main holiday without the royal family – Thanksgiving.
Unlike regulated Christmas with the royal family steeped in tradition, Harry and Meghan’s Thanksgiving is a much more relaxed affair.
The couple usually enjoys a home-cooked meal with traditional Thanksgiving dishes.
And Megan said the ellen show, the family likes to use the vacation to “relax” and spend quality time together.
She said, “I like to cook, we’re going to be at home and just relax and sort of settle in.”
“This is our second Thanksgiving at home in California, so it’s going to be nice.”
Meghan is known to be a fan of the holiday — and in 2016 she shared photos of her “perfect Thanksgiving turkey” on Instagram.
She wrote in the caption, “Oh, this time I roasted a pretty perfect turkey for Thanksgiving!
“The question is, can I do it again? The pressure is on.”
She told her fans that she cooked the bird on a barbecue instead of in the oven to keep the skin as crispy as possible.
The Duchess also shared her Thanksgiving recipes on her now-defunct blog, The Tig.
In America, this day marks the beginning of Christmas Eve.
This happens as we have shown the reason Meghan and Harry won’t be joining the royal family for Christmas.
But the Duke and Duchess are expected to decline an invitation to Sandringham as relations continue to sour, according to royal experts.
Biographer Angela Levin told The Sun: “The Queen’s death means there won’t be as much pressure for the whole family to be together – which is good, because it looks like Harry and Meghan won’t be attending.
