Meghan Markle's very first Christmas with the royal family was as picture-perfect as it looked.

Prince Harry guested edited BBC Radio 4's Today program on Wednesday, where he interviewed his friend Barack Obama and sat for an interview himself. The first topic of conversation was, of course, his royal Christmas with fiancé Meghan Markle—and Harry revealed that it was "fantastic."

"She really enjoyed it," Harry began. "The family loved having her there. There's always that family part of Christmas, there's always that work element as well. And I think together we had an amazing time."

Harry also revealed that he and Meghan stayed with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, likely at their country estate, Anmer Hall. Anmer Hall is just 2 miles from Sandringham, where the royals spent Christmas with the Queen. "We had great fun staying with my brother and sister-in-law and running around with the kids," Prince Harry said of spending Christmas day with Prince George and Princess Charlotte."Christmas was fantastic."

Meghan's first royal Christmas was no doubt a busy one. From a pre-Christmas lunch celebration in London last week to Christmas Eve tea, and, of course, the Christmas day church service (complete with a curtsy!), Meghan had many royal traditions to learn to this year. And while Harry said there was "plenty" he had to explain to Meghan, she handled it all flawlessly. "Every family is complex," Harry began. "She’s done an absolutely amazing job, she’s getting in there and it’s the family that I suppose she’s never had."
