I suspect Camilla would have thought it was a hoot, and Charles, and possibly even William and Kate would have had a chuckle over it.
Oh, good. I was thinking it was unbelievably crass too, and I'm glad it wasn't.

Yup. A totally harmless joke and the Duchess of Cambridge was certainly not the butt of it. I have a feeling she'd have found it amusing.

I thought Zara looked really good but my gosh, can't she get a dental bridge for her missing teeth? I never noticed how unbecoming it was until the 2012 Christmas photos appeared.
I think Zara heard you. http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Z...rFbYf_qS_x.jpg

I am looking forward to seeing the extended BRF at Sandringham this year. I hope they have a wonderful time, with George present for the first time.

Has it been confirmed that the Cambridge will be at Sandringham this year? Or is it just us assuming they will because they're were with the Middletons last year? In any case we won't see George, I think

I do not believe it has been confirmed, but for what its worth, I am expecting the Cambridge's to be a Sandringham.

I agree, we are unlikely to see George irrespective of where the Cambridge's are.

You may get a drive by photo of George when William and Kate go to the big family Christmas lunch at BP. We have gotten shots of them driving in/out of the palace the last 2 years.

I suspect George may be at home in KP for the big BP lunch.

I believe that HMQ gave the D & D of Cam that particular house so that the Middletons could be comfortablely accommodated for Christmas. I am sure all will be around for the after Christmas shoot.

The lunch is normally just before the Queen heads off to Sandringham so likely to be sometime next week. I wish it was filmed so we could get clips in her Christmas speech. I loved the clips from 2004 when the Queen and Philip were seen giving out gifts and we saw Louise getting hers, and being adorable as ever at 13 months old!

We might see William & Catherine arrive to the lunch with Prince George. The royals usually bring the kids along as its a extended family gathering. I think we might also see Lord & Lady Frederick Windsor with baby Maude.

Just my opinion but this idea prevalent on the forums and on social media sites that we will see Prince George "out and about" is strange. The royals never parade babies. Apart from official photographs and perhaps a view on the Queen's Christmas message video, they disappear from view. No William until Harry came along and those were official pix; no Peter or Zara Philips, no Beatrice and Eugenie and definitely no Louise or James. It doesn't happen. No visits to lunches; not on the way to church - nothing.

Add to this tradition William's intense need for privacy, I'd say hell would freeze over first before you see Baby George. JMO

Regarding the walk to church: I doubt Zara and Mike will attend because of Zara's pregnancy, but I hope we get to see other members of the extended family (the Linleys, Chattos, Peter and Autumn Phillips). I also doubt that George will attend as he's too young IMO.

Regarding the Christmas Lunch: I think all extended members of the Royal Family will attend, apart from Zara and Mike because of the same reason above.
Question: Have we ever got photos of the royals inside Buckingham Palace, or do we "only" get some of the arrivals?

I'm just guessing William & Catherine will take George along at the lunch. Sometimes we do see some of the kids arrive with their parents at the extended family Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. It's a private family event so, no, we don't get pictures from inside.

Zara was walking in the mud at the races today, so I see no reason she could not go to Sandringham/church on Christmas. She may choose to not be photographed, but the stride today was long and confident.
