On Wednesday, December 27th, Prince Harry appeared in a radio interview with BBC, where he discussed the details of having his future wife join his family for Christmas. As previously reported, the Queen broke Royal tradition by allowing Ms. Markle over for the holidays—typically, only official members of the Royal family by blood or marriage are welcomed.
In his interview, the Prince said Christmas was “fantastic” and the Royal family “loved having her there.”
The Prince also admitted to having to explain some family traditions to his fiancee, but said she did an “amazing job.” The Royal family is a large family, and Harry noted, “She’s getting in there and it’s the family that I suppose she’s never had.”
