"Doria's quiet dignity and grace at the Royal wedding has earned her enormous respect from Meghan's new in-laws", the source tells ET.

The Middletons have spent Christmas with the royal family but resided in the neighboring country house Anmer Hall instead. The Queen had broken protocol for Markle before by inviting her to Sandringham activities when she was engaged to Prince Harry.
