As President Donald Trump makes his second visit to Buckingham Palace this year, Meghan Markle once again won't be there.
The president is expected to attend a drinks reception at the palace during his two-day trip to London for a NATO summit. While Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are set to welcome Trump and other world leaders at the reception, Meghan, Prince Harry and Prince William will not be there.
People reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are skipping the event because it falls during their six-week hiatus from official royal duties, which was announced in November and also means that they'll miss Queen Elizabeth's annual Christmas celebration at Sandringham.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month," Buckingham Palace said in a statement. "Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland. This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen."
