Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have chosen to invite their friends over for Christmas, and it'll be the second year running they haven't spent December 25 with Prince Charles.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex invited pals David Foster, 71, and singer Katharine McPHee, 36, to their LA home.

Ms McPhee married Mr Foster in 2019, with the American idol star saying Harry and her husband have "a really, really beautiful relationship."

She added they are "like father and son".

Mr Foster, a 16-time Grammy winning record producer, is a year younger than Harry's father Prince Charles, writes the Express.

A source close to the Sussexes told Marie Claire: “Meghan very much wants to host the first Christmas at their new home with her mum.

“She’s really excited and is planning on doing all the traditions she grew up with as a child, including the cooking.

They’ve also invited David and Katherine to spend it with them. David had mentioned Harry and Meghan going to theirs but Meghan wants it at home.
