MEGHAN Markle may fly mum Doria Ragland to Britain for Thanksgiving, ditching her plan to be in LA for the American holiday, according to reports.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, wants to spend the day volunteering at a homeless shelter in London, according to the Mail.

Earlier this week, The Sun broke the news Meghan and Prince Harry, 35, will not join The Queen in Sandringham for baby Archie's first Christmas.

And sources close to the Duchess revealed they are considering having Doria make the 11-hour flight to Frogmore Cottage, Windsor for the festive period.

An insider in America told the Mail Online: "From what I know, they aren't coming here. Doria is going there for the holiday (Thanksgiving)."

The source added: "They won't be officially celebrating Thanksgiving because it isn't a British holiday.

"But Meghan is considering spending some of the day helping out at a homeless shelter in London."

Meghan and Harry have spent the last two Christmases in Sandringham, where The Queen always celebrates.

Confirming they would celebrate with Doria instead this year, Buckingham Palace said: "This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen."

Last year, Meghan and Harry celebrated Thanksgiving at home in Kensington Palace, with the Duchess reported to have made a traditional turkey dinner.

The Sussexes had been planning to fly to LA this year, according to reports, but are now considering other options.

Thanksgiving is an American celebration, which dates back to 1619 when 38 English colonists had a feast, saying thanksgiving prayers, when they arrived safely in Virginia.

Its current date, the fourth Thursday in November, the 28th this year, was set by President Franklin D Roosevelt.

This will be Meghan and Harry's first Thanksgiving as parents, following Archie Harrison's birth in May.

Meghan previously shared her favourite Thanksgiving recipes on The Tig – promising to make you feel like ‘the Queen’.
