Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Megan Markle continue to break royal rules in constant defiance of Queen Elizabeth II and members of the royal family. And it seems that the Queen will be deprived of seeing Harry, Megan and their young son Archie at the Christmas celebrations this year as well, because they intend to ignore Her Majesty’s celebrations in Sandringham, England, and celebrate with celebrities in Los Angeles with his godfather.
And last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex neglected to attend Christmas celebrations with Her Majesty the Year, as they went to spend their own vacation at their rented mansion on Vancouver Island, Canada.
Instead of spending time with his father, Prince Charles, and his Queen’s grandmother, Harry and Meghan plan to spend Christmas with Canadian record industry emperor David Foster, 70, who helped Harry and Meghan settle into their new life in the Los Angeles area.
Megan Markle went to high school in Los Angeles with Foster’s wife, singer Catherine McVeigh, who is expected to accompany them along the trip.
Foster has been married five times, and was previously married to Yolanda Hadid, mother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid, and former actress and songwriter Linda Thompson.
For her part, Catherine spoke enthusiastically about Foster’s “really beautiful relationship” with the Duke of Sussex, as Harry is also known, and added: “They are very kind, like father and son.”
A close source said that Harry does not want to move Markle and Archie to England to spend the holidays with the Queen, pointing out that “Megan very much wants to spend the first birthday in their new home with her mother.”
The “Daily Star” newspaper reported that Megan and Harry are very intrigued by the idea of spending Christmas in their luxurious new home in Montecito, California, and that the holiday of the legendary Queen is not even in their accounts. As it stands, Megan and Harry will have to isolate themselves for two weeks if they return to the UK.
UK government guidelines also state that Megan Markle and Harry can only see the Queen at Christmas if they are in a group of 6 or younger.
Meanwhile, reports indicate that Harry will face a massive tax bill if he does not withdraw from the United States in the coming weeks and spends the rest of the year elsewhere.
So far, the couple spent 151 days in their 11 million-pound mansion in California, and once they reached 183 days, it would be owed to US taxes, according to The Sun newspaper.
