The British royal family continued its tradition of going to church in style on Christmas, and they were joined Monday by the family’s newest addition — Meghan Markle.
The queen appeared in pink, wearing one of her iconic hats, and Markle wore a brown coat and a dark brown hat. The Daily Mail’s royal correspondent, Rebecca English, noted on Twitter that it’s one of the first times Markle has been out in a hat, and it will probably be the first time of many.
