In the light of today's events, the message's theme will hit home even more. Here's a little preview from 'The Telegraph'.

I'm so glad HM is today and the next days surrounded by her closest and dearest as her husband is severely ill. I hope he will follow doctor's advice and will allow himself time to relax and recover - difficult when the Dioamond Jubilee Year is coming but necessary, IMHO.

The picture frames on the table are lovely, and I could be mistaken but the one of the little curly blonde girl in a pink and white top (sitting in box!) looks like Lady Louise. The hair is what makes me think it's Louise.

That is such a precious picture . I'm also thinking it's little Louise, probably age one or two.

I love how the Queen looks in her rimless glasses. You can really see her face so clearly now.

The Royals attended an early morning Christmas service. Kate had her hair pulled back halfway and seemed to be wearing a knee length coat in what appeared to be grey.

There is a huge queue of people waiting to see them at the main service at 11am.

The Palace have also announced that some of the family will visit Prince Philip in hospital after lunch.

Kate and Beatrice

The larger family

Apparently the crowds at the Church are much bigger than usual. The queue seemed enormous I have to say.

Lady Louise was there toooooo! I was so thrilled to see her walking with her Dad, and it was even cuter because Sophie waited for them when she got out of the car with the Queen. Edward and Louise were one of the last to arrive and Sophie stood waiting for them. Louise had a little hat on. I am sure we'll see more of them all after the service. What a great turn out from them all though. Pretty much everyone of the closest members, barring Viscount Severn, were there.

Lady Louise looks adorable in her little hat. Lovely to see them all interacting, especially the little clips on the news of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Lady Louise helping Granny with all her flowers.

I love the Princesses' hats as well. Sophie's hat is lovely, she does look very chic. As always.

Lady Louise looked absolutely adorable. Dressed up so ladylike in such a sweet outfit. I sure wish this look for dressy outfits would be more in style for little girls, rather than the way a lot of them seem to be styled today, with so many of them looking like little 'Kardashians'.
