Setting the right tone with having their Christmas party at a family restaurant and its great 27 members of their household could attend

Plus Kate is eating for two!! :)

I thought they didn't have any staff besides their two secretaries and drivers? Who were all the people at the lunch?

I'm glad Catherine is feeling better. Maybe she is past week 12.

Well I think The couple officially have close to a dozen staff and I'm sure family members came along , so 27 isn't many for a Christmas party.

I'm happy to hear there's a possibility of her spending Christmas with the Royal Family. How many weeks is she?

When admitted on the 3rd December she was "less than 12 weeks" and the DM has maintained that in this article.

Christmas at Sandringham is apparently not a certainty.

There are tweets about Sandringham - and them not attending. Speculation I know ......

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter
@Caitlin5670 @iamraena All signs from royal sources point to William and Kate not going to Sandringham but we await official confirmation.

also

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter10h
@iamraena Well, if it is confirmed, it could be William is on duty. But they did let it be known they wouldn't go to granny's every year

I can understand them not going if William is on duty, I can't understand them not going if he isn't especially at Henry isn't going to be there.

But spending Christmas Day with her family - say alternating - is fair. It's actually what most of us do. It may be a step too far to invite the Middleton's to Sandringham

It might be what most of US do, but isn't it tradition of the royal family to spend it all together? Does Sophie alternates? Do Charles and Camilla alternate? They may leave to be sometime with her children but they're always there. So unless Kate is feeling really bad due to HG (in which case I may understand Christmas with the RF can be stressfull) I see no reason to break traditions and spend Christmas with the Middletons

frankly most of the current "traditions" of the royal family started when the cameras rolled in and we created them.

Whatever happens, if its ok with HMQ its fine with me. If they go to Catherine's parents then there will be less opportunity for "bump watch" - which is becoming too much in my opinion.
