Prince Harry has been celebrating Thanksgiving every year since meeting his now wife, Meghan Markle, and their young children, Archie and Lilibet, have their own traditions in place each holiday.

This is because ever since Archie was a baby, the couple have spent the holiday with Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland.

The following year, the family celebrated the US holiday with Doria again - but this time in America, which marked the first year that they were living there after relocating.

At the time, a source told HELLO! that they were planning "to enjoy a homecooked meal with traditional Thanksgiving dishes, including recipes made with fresh vegetables from their garden".

She wrote: "Despite the contrast of my two worlds growing up, there was a powerful commonality: both my parents came from little, so they made a choice to give a lot – buying turkeys for homeless shelters at Thanksgiving, delivering meals to patients in hospice care, donating any spare change in their pocket to those asking for it, and performing quiet acts of grace – be it a hug, a smile, or a pat on the back to show ones in need that they would be alright.”
