Katie Nicholl told GBNews.com that Harry will try to give his children as close to a British Christmas as possible despite the fact the family will be celebrating in the US.

She added that the Duke of Sussex will be unable to replicate the traditional Royal Family Christmas experience for his children.

Nicholl said: "I am sure there are moments when Harry must feel homesick.

"California is a world away from Britain and a world away from a British Christmas.

"I suspect they will have many of the British traditions that Harry is used to, we have seen him dressing the tree with Archie.

"They will have as close to a British Christmas in California as they can.

"Of course, what they won't have is the traditional royal Christmas experience at Sandringham."

GB News understands that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not received an invitation to spend Christmas with the Royal Family.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

A source close to Harry and Meghan told GB News they have not been invited to spend the festive period with the royals in the UK.

A source close to Harry and Meghan told GB News they have not been invited to spend the festive period with the royals in the UK.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told GB News that King Charles's decision to evict the couple from Frogmore Cottage earlier this year has made a return to the UK for Christmas very unlikely.

Fitzwilliams said: "They have no base in Britain, things have reached that stage, it is not good.

"The rift means there is no such possibility at the moment."
