Queen Elizabeth II Invites Duchess Kate's Parents to Royal Christmas Gathering

In an unprecedented move, Queen Elizabeth II has extended an invitation to Duchess Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, to be the first-ever non-royals to join her family’s annual Christmas gathering at the Sandringham Estate. The bid breaks with decades of tradition, since the celebration until now has been an exclusively royal affair.

As the new issue of Us Weekly reveals, Her Royal Highness hopes that the generous overture will encourage Prince William’s pregnant wife to partake in the festivities “despite this difficult time.”
