From vague memories of last year, we just had the pictures in the cars, nothing from inside

There was one year, i think probably 2005 or so, in the Queen's Christmas Speech, some footages of the Royals inside the Palace were shown.

Thanks for the link, it seems a lot of family attended. Doesn't look like Edward and Sophie attended, but perhaps they did but weren't photographed. Nice to see The Duchess of Kent, she is so lovely.

I think it was 2004 as Lady Louise was seen in it receiving a gift from the Queen, she was adorable with the Queen and Prince Philip, especially when the Queen was seen going, "ooohhh" and Louise copied her.

We just normally get images of the cars arriving, bit of a shame we haven't Lady Louise in the car looking cute as ever like last year.

Thanks for the links, it's nice to see so many of them attending. I hope Charles continues this tradition when he becomes King as it is probably one of the few times the extended family come together, aside for funerals and weddings.

Queen's Christmas Speech 2004

Lady Louise appears a couple of times in the video. She looks so much like Edward when she was a toddler.

That video was precious . I love the 'oooh!' from baby Louise, and Margarita with her blonde curls, handing the gift with such a solemn expression . Wonderful glimpses of Her Majesty behind closed doors.

According to this page every member of the family attended today except for the York girls and the Wessexes (although Edward and Sophie do have an apartment at BP so perhaps they were inside already),

We don't see anything from inside - it is a private lunch.

I would assume that the Yorks attended - but as Andrew has an apartment in BP we didn't get any pictures of them arriving - same with the Wessexes.

Prince Andrew was seen driving in so if his daughters were there I would have expected them to arrive with him. Neither were they seen leaving later on but I suppose it's hard to know for sure as this is such a private event.

It seems incongruous to see Zara with a ski cap on for a luncheon with the Queen, but casual has always been her style!

Personally, I think it sets a good austere message, well thought out. Luxury days are a thing of the past, at least for now. Everything must be considered and restraint should be exercised where possible.

This brought to mind an image of a car stuffed with half a dozen people and half a dozen dogs, suitcases, gifts, perhaps a tree and a case of wine... No wonder HM wanted to ride the train!
