Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting into the holiday spirit! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly picked out their Christmas tree. The royal pair was spotted on Wednesday shopping for their tannenbaum. A Twitter user named James tweeted on Dec. 2, “Meghan and Prince Harry came into my work today and we sold them their Christmas Tree.”
He added, “We had our lot empty when they got there- their agent promoted them a good time to come instead of us shutting it down. There was one family in there and their stoked little son ran through trees up to Harry and asked if he worked here not knowing who that is😂.”
This holiday season will be the Sussexes’ first in their Santa Barbara home. The couple, who stepped back as senior members of the royal family earlier this year, moved into the nearly 19,000 square foot Montecito property back in July. HOLA! USA’s sister brand HELLO! reports that Meghan, Harry and their one-year-old son Archie Harrison will celebrate their first Christmas together in the US this year.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex aren’t the only British royals decking the halls. Queen Elizabeth’s grandson-in-law Mike Tindall revealed this week that his wife Zara Tindall has already decorated their tree. The Tindalls get more than one tree because Princess Anne’s daughter Zara has a “slight OCD with her tree.”
“My wife has a slight OCD with her tree, it’s a bit like Monica [from Friends]. Me and the kids [daughters Mia, six, and Lena, two] get our own tree that we can throw tinsel on,” Mike explained on The Good, The Bad & The Rugby. “My wife has the main tree that sits in the house and looks very, very pretty and very organized.” He added, “She loves her tree. It is a wonderful sight and it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen.”
Last year, the couple’s oldest daughter Mia had her own little tree to decorate. Mike said, “You literally could not see one pine on this tree. It was just covered in everything that Mia could get on it.” While Mia doesn’t have her 2020 tree yet, she has already decorated her bedroom with “fairy lights” everywhere. Mike shared, “You can basically decapitate yourself on numerous parts of her room, but she was dead happy with her decorations so if she’s happy, I’m happy.”
