The service is the first time Meghan and Harry have appeared together since their first official public engagement, shortly after announcing their upcoming wedding last month. But if Prince Harry is in the room with her, then the princesses will have to curtsy her instead because she takes Harry's rank, and Harry is the son of Prince Charles, who outranks his younger brother Prince Andrew. She will voice praise for his "support and unique sense of humor". They plan to Wednesday at Windsor Castle in May. The holiday service marked the first public appearance for the foursome.

The Queen, who was dressed in orange attire at the church service, had missed the event in 2016 because she was ill with a bad cold.

"She was very, very lovely", said Judith Wallis, a woman who chatted briefly with the couple.

As ET previously reported, Meghan and Harry were expected to stay at William and Kate's country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, which is close to Sandringham, so they could see 4-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte open their stockings from Santa on Christmas morning. William recently gave Santa Claus a Christmas list from his 4-year-old son, Prince George, with a request for a police auto and a note that he'd been "nice" this year.

After the service, Ms Markle joined members of the family in greeting the crowds - some of whom had been waiting outside since 05:00 GMT (6am NZT). Rather, members of the family will often swap amusing gifts.

This break with the usual protocol can be interpreted in several ways: Either the protocol was never as rigid as assumed, or the royal family - acutely aware of the need to make adjustments with the times - is adapting to a new era and a different kind of royal bride-to-be. Many well-wishers carried flowers to give to the royals after the service.

If royal tradition from previous years was followed, the family will have exchanged presents on Christmas Eve and awoken to a stocking of small gifts and fruit at the end of their beds.

After lunch, the entire family sits down to watch Queen Elizabeth's annual televised Christmas message. A toast is part of the meal, which ranges from roast beef to turkey and ham.

Kensington Palace also announced that Markle will join the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry once she weds Harry.

The pair also stood with Kate and William on the church steps.
