According to the Sunday Express, the royal family partakes in a friendly game of charades every Christmas night, and Prince Harry has advised Markle to tone down her acting chops so Queen Elizabeth can win. “The duchess has to resist that American urge to win at everything. The whole family likes to play charades on Christmas night, and she must never beat the Queen, who is a fine actress herself,” a source tells the publication.

The Royal Family sit down at exactly 6pm on Christmas Eve open their presents in the red drawing room at Sandringham.

That afternoon, the family members have to try and creep down and place their gifts without being spotted. No-one should open their present until given permission by Prince Philip, who supervises the proceedings. Also every present should be a cheap “joke gift”and the cheaper the better.

Prince Harry once reportedly gave his grandmother a shower cap with the phrase “Ain’t life a b*tch” on it!
