People confirms that despite the earlier reports, Doria will not be present during the royal family's Christmas festivities. Really, it's not all that unusual — William's in-laws, the Middleton family, don't come either.
Historically, extended in-laws have not been invited to the royal Christmas parties, so this doesn't seem so much of a slight as just following business as usual. Plus, it's not like Ragland hasn't been involved at all since Markle tied the knot in May — she joined Meghan and Harry unexpectedly for what was supposed to be the Duchess of Sussex's first solo event, lending support all the way.
We bet she'll send a Christmas card in her absence.
