There are many pictures of the British royals attending church this Christmas, including Sophie - but no Louise as far as the pictures I've seen show :( . But you can see William and Harry, Zara and Peter Phillips and of course the Queen and Prince Phillip and many other members of the family.

Louise didn't go to church. Why would anyone expect a 6-7 week old baby who was born prematurely *to be taken* out in the cold?

*added this*

I think people are just interested in seeing the baby again since we haven't seen her since she left the hospital with her parents.

And afterall, Maxima took Catharina-Amalia out shopping only 2 weeks or so after she was born. Although, of course, attending a long church service in which quiet is appreciated may not be the best place for a newborn. I guess Catharina-Amalia could've created all the fuss she wanted in the throngs of shoppers and nobody would notice the difference!

Amalia wasn't born prematurely, though. You can't do the same things with preemies while they're still vulnerable.

And I agree that Louise wouldn't have been quiet during the service, which is another reason not to take her. But William wasn't taken to church for Christmas services for several years, (until his parents could be sure he'd behave). None of the Queen's grandchildren were taken to church until they were old enough to sit still and keep quiet.

PBS times are different in each market. But it came one in the second half of the BBC News for me.

Found this on the Royal Fantasy Yahoo Group today:

"Dotty, the dog accused of killing one of the Queen's corgis, is an
innocent victim of mistaken identity, Buckingham Palace conceded
last night.

It was reported that the culprit could be one of the Princess
Royal's other English bull terriers, Florence, after vets compared
the corgi's wounds with the two dogs' jaw sizes.

Dotty has been vilified since being blamed for savaging the corgi
last Monday and even faced a death sentence because it was a "repeat
offender".

The RSPCA called for the dog to be put down because of its attack on
two children last April, which resulted in the Princess acquiring a
criminal record. A spokesman for the animal charity described Dotty
as "unpredictable" and a "rogue dog".

The corgi, Pharos, had to be put down the morning after it was
attacked when the Princess arrived at Sandringham with her dogs.
Several corgis raced down the main staircase and one of the terriers
pounced on Pharos, mauling its hind legs. The Queen was said to
be "devastated" by the death of her pet.

Last November, the Princess was fined 500 by East Berkshire
magistrates under the Dangerous Dogs Act and ordered to keep Dotty
on a lead in public places after it attacked two cousins as they
cycled in Windsor Great Park."

I wonder if the RSPCA is going to apologise for demanding that Dotty be destroyed. Somehow, I doubt it.

It's good that they apologised. I've only heard negative things about the organisation from ppl who've needed their assistance and didn't get it.

Sorry. Read it too quickly. I had just heard that they asked for it be destroyed. Don't know if they apologized.

No problem. I'll check the bbcnews.com site to see if there's any info about an apology. But I would be surprised if they did, simply because it would so humiliating for them.

it was the princess herself that identified her dog. she pulled her dog (dotty) away when the dogs were fighting. so, how could she as the owner of the dog identified it wrongly ?

dotty is dangerous and since this is its second attck, it should be put down. Now that it turns out to be florence and not dotty, dotty doesn't need to be put down. the same goes to florence as this is its first offence.

so there you go, the dog goes free !!

found this on sky.com today. apparently the dog florence attacked a royal maid !!

ANNE'S DOG ATTACKS MAID

A royal maid was attacked by the Princess Royal's killer bull terrier just days after it savaged one of the Queen's corgis, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

Florence the English bull terrier attacked the woman while at Sandringham on Saturday, biting her on the knee, a Palace spokeswoman said.


The woman, reportedly in her 50s, was treated on the estate by a doctor who had been called by Anne after hearing of the attack.

The dog will now undergo behavioural retraining, but the Palace spokeswoman refused to comment on whether it would have to be put down.

The spokeswoman added that the wound was a "minor bite" and the woman did not need hospital treatment.

Last week, Florence so badly mauled Pharos, one of the Queen's oldest and best-loved corgis, that it had to be put down.

The Sun reported that Saturday's attack came when the maid, who is believed to have worked for the Queen for two decades, had gone with three other women to clean Anne's room.

The Princess and her husband were not in the room at the time but were on the estate.

One of Anne's other bull terriers, Dotty, was originally blamed for last week's corgi attack but was formally cleared by the Palace after a mistaken identity.

But before Dotty was cleared, the dog was vilified by the nation and the RSPCA had reportedly called for it to be put down as it would have been a second attack.

Anne became the first member of the Royal Family to get a criminal record when she was fined 500 when Dotty attacked two children in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire.

Again? Something has to be down to control the behaviour of the dogs.

In Britain, sons and their offspring come before daughters and their offspring. So it's Charles, his offspring, Andrew, his offspring, Edward, his offspring, and then Anne and her offspring.

"THE Queen has personally apologised to royal housemaid Ruby Brooker
after the servant was bitten by one of Princess Anne's dogs.

In a private audience with the maid, the Queen expressed her concern
over the attack by bull terrier Florence at Sandringham last
weekend.

Mrs Brooker, 55, had been with three other housemaids when cleaning
Princess Anne's rooms. To their alarm, all three of the Princess'
terriers were roaming freely in her quarters.

As the dogs became increasingly agitated the maids fled, but Mrs
Brooker, 55, was not quick enough and was bitten on the knee.

The incident came just five days after the same animal savaged
Pharos one of the Queens favourite corgis which was put down.

Mrs Brooker's husband, David, played down the incident.

He said it was "only to be expected that the Queen would show
sympathy ... personally".

"We own dogs ourselves, including a rottweiler, so we are used to
them," he said.

"Princess Anne saw her and apologised the same day. It was very
amicable. Ruby carried on working and the doctor has given her the
all-clear.

"She knows Princess Anne's dogs well. I think they were bored
because they were shut up.

"When (Ruby) came home ... she said: 'I got bitten by Princess
Anne's dog today. Bloody hell, it didn't half hurt.' But you don't
really sue the Queen, do you?"

Health and safety officials have already interviewed Mrs Brooker.

Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on the incident, which has
led to renewed public pressure on the Princess to control her pets.

It is barely 15 months since another of her terriers, Dottie,
attacked two boys, 12 and 7, riding bikes in a park. The father of
the younger boy said his son remained "deeply traumatised".

"He won't go to the park and hasn't ridden his bike since. The boys
have been to see psychiatrists. My son keeps asking me if the dog
that hurt him has been put down," he said.

The Princess was fined $1180 and ordered to have Dottie re-trained.

Original reports named the same dog as the perpetrator of the
Christmas mauling of Pharos, but Palace officials laid the blame at
Florence's door. She now is likely to undergo behavioural treatment. "
