Looks like little Archie won't be spending his first Christmas with his great grandmother Queen Elizabeth II!

It has been confirmed that Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Archie will be spending their Christmas with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland.

A spokesperson for the couple told Sky News: "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."

It has not been confirmed exactly where that will be, be it in the UK, the States, South Africa or somewhere else altogether.

It is understood the Duke and Duchess are due to begin a six-week break next week, after carrying out a number of engagements early in November and their busy tour of Africa in September and October.
