I agree with cepe regarding Christmas though. Its one thing maybe to attend Ascot or some other public event but to be at Sandringham with the Queen and a few dozen members of the BRF would be pretty uncomfortable for me.

I don't know, I think I would enjoy myself. Of course there would be some butterflies in my stomach because I get nervous going over to anyones house, even my own family's house ( you know cousins houses) sometimes. I think I would enjoy getting to know Sophie, Catherine, Beatrice, Eugenie, William, Harry and the rest of the gang.

For years, we had Kate being invited to Sandringham Christmas while a still a girlfriend, last year was Pippa was going to come, this year Mike & Carole. I don't believe it.

I think it we be like last year - Christmas with the royals & New Years Eve with the Middletons.

The press gets into this kind of thing every year to fill their pages.

The Christmas festivities at Sandringham have always been just for the family. The Middleton's will be doing their own thing at their own home. The Queen usually only invite weekend guest to Sandringham once the Christmas celebrations are over and many of her own family members have gone back home. There isn't much room at Sandringham already. There was at Windsor but not Sandringham.

The Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall usually go back to Birkhall and I have heard that William & Catherine joins them for New Years.

Sophie attended Sandringham as a girlfriend, but never Christmas day. The rule is only those married to the family, or engaged to be married, can attend Christmas Day.

As Dman says, most of the family leave after Boxing Day and that is the time when other guests are invited. Edward and Sophie appear to be the only ones to stay for longer, which is perhaps why Christopher is often invited after Christmas.

Yeah, the Wessex's are known to stay longer than the rest of the family.

I have always thought Sophie resembled the actress Gillian Anderson, but in the photos of her driving into the Palace the resemblance is uncanny!

Hello, I am Gillian Anderson's long lost sister.

If Anne & Tim leave on Boxing Day it would be odd for Mike's family to show up. Presumably they would go the Gatcombe to see their son & daughter in law or Mike and Zara would go to see them at their home.
