I watched it as well and I totally agree with you. The speech was meanningful as usual. She spoke of things that matter for the people of the UK and the countries of the Commonwealth.

The queen always goes by car and a member of the family with a very young child (who does not attend the service) joins her. However i read that they were also accompanied by Princess Beatrice. I have no idea how she qualifies.

Yah i do agree that the Queen seems close to Princess Beatrice, but i'm not sure is it the first time Beatrice joins in the Queen's car for the ride to the Church at Christmas.... And Eugenie as well?But i'm sure Her Majesty has been going with the Countess of Wessex since 2002 after The Queen Mother's death right?And the Queen also goes with the Countess on many other occasions like at Easter or on Boxing Days.

These days the Queen's Christmas celebrations are just for her immediate family. When she didn't have all those grandchildren and son and daughters in law, and the celebrations were held at Windsor, the extended family (the Gloucester and Kent cousins and their children, but not the Lascelles cousins) were expected to attend. These days, Sandringham Christmas is just for the Mountbatten-Windsors.

The Lascelles cousins are the children and gradchildren of the previous Princess Royal, who was George VI's sister and married Henry Lascelles, the Earl of Harewood. I assume that once she'd married, her family were considered to "belong" to the Lascelles side rather than the Windsor side, and they would have spent their celebrations with the Harewoods.

Also, the elder son of that marriage was involved in a rather acrimonious and public divorce, and was pretty much cut adrift from the royal family as a result. He wasn't sent invitations to royal events and so on, much like the Duke of Windsor. This was alleviated somewhat after Princess Margaret's divorce, but by then probably the Harewoods and Windsors weren't all that close.

Oh well Beatrice is trying to be over the top again with eccentric clothes and hats, (just like mummy dear) but Eugenie, ah well she is a real beauty!

Peter looks so great! Hottie! Wow, I haven't thought Peter looks so great in some time. He's always handsome, nice looking, but for the first time in awhile he looks really hot.

Probably because she is pregenant with her child. The Queen wanted to protect her from any incident.
