Royals including Prince William, Kate and Harry descend on Buckingham Palace for Christmas lunch | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
They include some of the most famous faces in the country among their number but not every member of the Royal Family is so well known, as police outside Buckingham Palace discovered today.

Officers had to resort to a crib sheet to identify the likes of Princess Alexandra and Prince Michael of Kent but had no such difficulty with the more senior royals on the guest list, among them the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Prince William, who was fresh from an early morning visit to homeless charity Centrepoint in London's Soho, arrived with his glossy-haired wife, who looked lovely in her festive cherry-red dress.
Prince George was there. He arrived with his nanny but left with Catherine and William

The above link contains photos of royals attending the lunch. It is nice to see Lady Gabriella accompanying her parents.

@RegalEyes: Although they arrived without him, Prince George has left the Queen's Christmas Lunch with Mum & Dad & nanny Maria in a Range Rover

Thank you to all for the links and article. I'm surprised that Camilla is not there and hopefully she's not at home with a cold.

From a post by Cepe (thank you Cepe) of last year's event - cars passing by: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1626788
For comparison and whatever. Catherine wore red last year, too.

And just because I loathe their inaccuracies, the DM is incorrect. Adm. Tim Laurence walked in both last year and this. http://previews.rexfeatures.com/prev...f3a75bb36d204a

I think it might just be a book.

I have to say, any glimpse of that little man just brings a smile to my face, even when we can barely seem him! Maybe I'm getting broody.

It does look like a book, most likely from the Queen as it's during that lunch that she gives out gifts to her extended family.

As mentioned above, the Palace pre-Christmas lunch took place today and the usual Royalty watchers were outside - slightly more frustrated this year as more cars now have tinted windows thus not enabling us to clearly identify the rear seat passengers.
However, between us, we spotted: ....

British Royal Christmas 2008-2014

The Daily Mail thinks it might be a curious George book. Anybody else kind of shocked by the hit or miss seatbelt use in these photos? Harry and Charles not wearing one especially after what happened with Diana.

Wonder who the young children with the Earl and Countess of St Andrew's were considering they have not got any grandchildren yet.

The pictures of Charles on his own were going into BP. He had an earlier engagement and so might have straight from that.

I haven't seen any pix of him leaving so she might have been there.

It looks like a book to me. I can't tell if he is arriving or leaving. If he's arriving, it probably was something to help keep him occupied. If he was leaving, I am glad the Queen give books to the children.

We all have different definitions but I'm not sure the Queen would consider Prince George extended family.

Perhaps if she is giving presents to the real extended family children (Kets/Glos etc) she would have something for George as he was the only child of the near family present.

Possible I think; also we dont know there was any present giving.

According Mark Stewart who is royal photographer, George and Nanny Maria weren't with W&K when the arrived but with them when the left so George with his parents are leaving photos

The view from the gate post said the Phillips girls where with their parents so George wasn't the only little one from the immediate family. He also could have just brought a book from KP and it wasn't a gift.

He could also have been given the book by someone other than The Queen e.g. maybe the Kent's or Gloucester's gave him a gift.

Is there anything known about the reason the Duchess of Cornwall didn't attend the luncheon at Buckingham Palace ?
