Today is the American holiday held annually on the fourth Thursday of November. And it's a particularly special one for the Sussex family, as it's the first that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will spend with Archie at their own home in the U.S.
Harry & Meghan celebrate Thanksgiving—with a special guest
The Duke and Duchess have been living in the U.S. since early 2020, but it wasn't until July that they moved to their permanent home in the Montecito community of Santa Barbara, California. According to People, for Thanksgiving 2020, they'll also welcome a special guest: Doria Ragland, Meghan's mother and Harry's mother-in-law, who lives in California.
People's report adds that "they are very happy" and that "Archie is thriving and growing quickly." Doria joins the close family-of-three for their meaningful Thanksgiving gathering — though it's not actually Prince Harry's first celebration of the American tradition.
Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's 2019 Thanksgiving
Last Thanksgiving, the family is thought to have travelled to California to spend the day with Doria, after having been staying in Canada at the time. Though no longer on social media today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did also wish followers a Happy Thanksgiving in 2019 on their now-defunct Instagram page.
Just one day prior to this year's Thanksgiving, Meghan released an op-ed in The New York Times revealing that she'd sadly suffered a miscarriage in July. The heartbreaking essay was reportedly inspired in part by today's holiday and the reflection that comes with it.
Earlier in the month, Harry remained active on charity work with veterans, and he and Meghan also paid a sombre visit to a war cemetery on the UK's Remembrance Sunday.
