Harry could be ‘missing family more than ever’ this Christmas after year away

Prince Harry could be missing a traditional British Christmas "more than ever" this year because he missed out on royal festivities in 2019, a commentator has suggested.

The Duke of Sussex will be spending Christmas in his multi-million pound Montecito home with wife Meghan Markle and son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Unlike festive traditions in the UK, Prince Harry's Christmas is likely to be much warmer with all the hallmarks of the US holidays including a popcorn decorated tree.

But royal commentator, Brittani Barger of Royal Central, believes that having not seen his family for almost a year he'll be missing them more than ever.

Ms Barger told Daily Star: "I think Harry will miss the traditional British Christmas and seeing his family more than ever, especially since he didn't spend Christmas with them last year.

"Covid has also resulted in him remaining in the US this entire year with no trips back to the UK.

"I think Meghan may feel more comfortable, in a way, because she is back in her home state."

She also predicts a "laid-back" affair for the family, dissimilar to a royal Christmas, with no "long walks to church in the cold" or turkey in sight.

Ms Barger added: "I'm sure they will mesh British and American traditions together for Archie.

"Ham is a normal meat for Christmas meals, whereas turkey is eaten on Thanksgiving.

"Many Americans string popcorn together and place it on their tree as decoration, think of it as a garland, so Harry and Meghan may do that.

"California has fairly warm Christmases and it's definitely more laid back than the royal affair.

"They won't have to make any long walks to church in the cold and can stay in with their family all day."

In 2019, Prince Harry and Meghan spent Christmas in Vancouver, Canada, with Archie and Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mum, as the couple took an extended break from royal duties.

The pair then announced their decision to step down as senior members of the royal family at the beginning of 2020.
