Kate Middleton can give Meghan Markle some good advice as to what present she should bring for Queen Elizabeth II this Christmas.

The "Suits" actress will be spending the holidays with the royal family, and since she's new to the royal life, picking the best gift for the queen might be difficult for Markle. The Duchess of Cambridge confessed that she was also worried about what to give Queen Elizabeth II last Christmas, so she opted to make something simple yet special for the monarch: her grandma's chutney.

"I was worried what to give the Queen as her Christmas present," Middleton told BBC (via Marie Claire). "I thought back to what I would give my own grandparents. And I thought, 'I'll make her something.' Which could have gone horribly wrong."

"I was slightly worried about it, but I noticed the next day that it was on the table," Middleton continued. "I think such a simple gesture went such a long way for me and I've noticed since she's done that on lots of occasions and I think it just shows her thoughtfulness, really, and her care in looking after everybody."

Middleton and Prince William will be hosting Prince Harry and Markle this holiday in their country home in Anmer Hall in Sandringham. "You can expect to see The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day," a Kensington Palace spokesperson said.

The upcoming holidays will be the best time for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to train Markle on the ins and outs of being a fulltime royal. It will also be the perfect time for Markle to bond with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

A day before Christmas, the British royal family will gather together in the Red Drawing Room during tea time to open their presents. In the evening, around 8 p.m., there will be a candle-lit dinner. On the morning of Christmas Day, the royals will share a full English breakfast, then they will attend the traditional church service at St. Mary Magdalene Church together.

After the holidays, Middleton and Prince William will fly to Norway and Sweden for an official visit. The couple's royal tour will begin at the end of January.
