He's been Guest Editor of Radio 4's Today programme and after interviewing such VIPs as Barack Obama and his father, Prince Charles, the time came for Harry himself to be interviewed.

Naturally, he was keen to talk about his passions – such as the military – but it wasn't long before conversation turned to Christmas, and specifically, his fiancée Meghan Markle's recent experience of the festivities with her soon-to-be Royal in-laws...

'It was fantastic. She really enjoyed it, the family loved having her there,' he said.

'Together we had a really amazing time, we had great fun staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running around with the kids,' he added.

When asked if there were any family traditions which had to be explained to his future wife, Harry replied: 'Oh plenty! I think we've got one of the biggest families that I know of and every family is complex as well...'

He concluded, 'She's done an absolutely amazing job. She's getting in there. And it's the family that I suppose she's never had...'


Prince Harry and Meghan are set to marry next year on Saturday 18th May at Windsor. The couple have decided to break with Royal tradition by marrying on a weekend so more people around the world get to join in with the celebrations.

And we for one cannot wait. Hats out everyone!

Trim with a twist

Meghan says: Traditionally garland or magnolia branches are used to adorn a stairwell banister or mantle. Take this concept and trim the outline of a mirror or beautiful piece of artwork that is centrally located in your entry hallway or living room.

Simple 'scapes

**Meghan says: **When creating a table-scape, keep it simple and crisp with an all white tablecloth, runner and napkins. Accent with gilded plates and napkin rings and use a stylish set of cutlery. All white flowers placed in the low vases are the perfect centerpiece.

Serve a festive cocktail

Meghan's recipe: Almond Milk Spiced Holiday Cocktail*4 cups unsweetened almond milk (you can make your own by blending raw almonds with milk and straining it)*1 tsp of cinnamon + 1 tsp cardamom + 1tsp of powdered ginger*1/2 tsp of clove*6-8 dried dates soaked in water*your favorite bourbon*cinnamon sticks for garnishBlend all ingredients (except the alcohol) in a powerful blender and then move to a small saucepan. Heat at a low temperature until heated and then add 4 -6oz into the pot depending on your friends' palates. Pour each drink and garnish with a cinnamon stick. If you prefer this drink cold, then omit the heating and shake it hard in a cocktail shaker and serve in champagne glasses with a cinnamon/sugar rim on the glass. Super pretty and equally delicious!

Friends buffet

Meghan says: Holidays with your friends allows you to break the family traditions and avoid Aunt Julie's fruit cake! Have each of your friends bring a dish or cook together in the kitchen. If you do not have a proper set-up, use your dining room table or kitchen counter as a buffet.

Put a twist on Christmas dinner side dishes

**Meghan says: **If you're like me, you end up buying way too much of everything for holiday meals. So whether you have leftover sweet potatoes or simply want to revamp the classic holiday side, these maple glazed potato wedges are crave-worthy. With the slight kick from cayenne and the brightness of the added lemon, they will be a crowd favorite.*two medium sweet potatoes*2 tbsp of olive oil*juice of half a lemon*1 tbsp of maple syrup*1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper*himalayan sea salt*handful of pepitasSlice the potatoes into wedges a coat with the mixture of oil, lemon juice and maple. Toss and then coat with the sprinkle of cayenne and salt to your liking. Lay onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for a half hour at 425 farenheit for 30 minutes. At the 15 minute mark, toss the potatoes and add the handful of pepitas for crunch and texture. They will be beautiful, browned and crisp and read to devour.
