I would have thought though that whatever she was doing she would be home for Christmas, especially with her brother being home from America. I mean this particular event at Buckingham Palace is mainly aimed at the "minor Royals" who won't be at Sandringham and she missed it last year as well. Strange.

It is a large family gathering sure but not an official event like a wedding or a coronation or a funeral. I suspect that that is the only time she will be seen as she attempts to live her life away from the spotlight. I think she will be home for Christmas with her parents and brother and sister-in-law but not necessarily interested in spending time with her extended family. She may have had other engagement of a totally private nature of course.

I do not think that Gabriella will lead a life completely away from the spotlight, but maybe she takes an time out from the family businesses.

I think it was wonderful that the Queen hosts the ENTIRE Royal Family to lunch every year...from her all first cousins, (except Lord Harewood who apparently does not exist to them), all the way down to the children and grandchildren of the Royal Dukes and Prince Michael.

I wonder if the Duke of Fife and his family were present..

It is good to see them all together. I wonder if they all get presents from the Queen.

.
Happy Christmas!

Just finished blogging about the Christmas hats ... I loved Zara's, Beatrice's and HM's, but I thought Eugenie's and Autumn's weren't great. And what was with the giant roses on Sophie Wessex and the repeat of the giant furry thing on Camilla?

WOW! The Queen...stunning! I LOVE her boots! Princess Anne looked so lovely in that beautiful shade of blue. I thought they all truly looked wonderful today! I loved all the hats, and FINALLY, Eugenie and Beatrice look great!! Merry Christmas to you all, and to your families!

I just love this gallery, the Winsdors look great! Is it me, or is Camilla's hat sitting on her head funny? Her Majesty looks great in Red- thanks for all the links.

Gosh I agree as ever theQueen looks amazing and ditto boots. Zara's were just too unbelievably high but it added the extra bit of jazziness to the day. I really liked Sophie's roses and thought she looked all round much less boring than other years I like her heels too. The jury is still out on Autunm is the skirt too short and could she pull it off. Princess Anne, whom I always say could be such a star in the fashion stakes with that amazing figure and she is really attractive looked as ever just ok. I love Boxing Day when all these Northern Hemisphere photos come out and am grateful to all of you for being so prompt.

Poor Autumn Kelly, she is such a gorgeous lady but has the worst outfit this year. What makes it worse is that she is the only one with a bad outfit. Even Princess Anne was on elegant form today. Everyone else looked smashing! I just love seeing Zara interacting with the family, she seems like such a happy fun person. And the Queen, that red, the brooch, and those Boots!!!! <3 Great Christmas show this year!

It's always great to see family together at Christmas and they all seemed to be having a lovely time together. I really wish, however, someone would have encouraged Autumn to change her jacket before leaving for church, one that wasn't so loud or flashy... and one that covered the too short skirt. It wasn't an appropriate choice, imo.

It's lovely to see them at this family occasion all together. Best surprises to me were Princess Beatrice and Princess Anne - they looked elegant.
Zara as charming as always, she really seems to be a warm and fun person IMO.

I'm having trouble finding clear pictures of them as well, but these are the best shots I've found so far:
