In wondered about that too because i think he should be old enough now to attend. Don't remeber when Louise started to attend but i think it at the latest 2010 when she was the same age as James is now.

I think Louise started to participate in the family walk from Church on Christmas Day in 2011, after her participation in William and Catherine's wedding, and Trooping the Colour. She was eight years old. Perhaps we'll see James next year, but it may depend on his ability to sit relatively still, and behave himself. Every child is different, and maybe at this time James is just not up to being a part of this.

I really enjoyed listening to Her Majesty's Christmas Message. I catch it every year. This year's message was quite moving, since as someone pointed out, it relates to what's going on in the world.

Is it possible Viscount Severn may be asserting nascent Atheism, and refuses to attend ? #joke

Well, that's interesting to listen to. I think I heard one "Sir," no ma'ams and no Catherines.

I don't recall seeing so many people waiting outside the church for the Royal Family! It was great to see the footage of almost everyone and particularly nice to see Lady Louise.
The Queen's Christmas message was lovely and beautifully filmed, there was a hint of a more personal feel to it than in previous years.

The Queen invokes the spirit of reconciliation - Telegraph

Quote:
We have heard much this year – the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War – about remembrance. The blood-red field of ceramic poppies outside the Tower of London, each symbolising a life cut short in that industrialised slaughter, captured the imagination of the nation, made us think anew about what it must have been like to be on those awful, muddy fields, to have been summoned to make the ultimate sacrifice for King and country.

In her Christmas message yesterday, Her Majesty the Queen did indeed evoke that theme of sacrifice and loss. Upon visiting the poppies, she said: “The only possible reaction to seeing them and walking among them was silence. For every poppy a life; and a reminder of the grief of loved ones left behind.”
Yet her chosen theme was not remembrance, but reconciliation. In a world scarred by war and conflict, in which our political discourse seems more rancorous than ever, it was not only useful but necessary to be reminded that we can also put our divisions behind us. Her Majesty began by invoking the image of Coventry Cathedral – destroyed in a later and no less terrible conflict – but also dwelt on the Christmas truce of 1914, the most tangible possible proof of how shared humanity can break through institutional enmity, if only for a moment.

It was a similar story with Her Majesty’s visit to Belfast: there, she was able to see how the Crumlin Road jail, once a place of misery, “is now a place of hope and fresh purpose; a reminder of what is possible when people reach out to one another”. The pointed mentions of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, and of the Scottish referendum campaign, suggested a similar hope – though couched in Her Majesty’s customary oblique and respectful fashion – that the wounds within the Union can also be healed.
This was not just a Christmas message, but a Christian one. The Queen has always been not just the head of the Anglican Church, but one of its most devout members. Yesterday, she spoke explicitly about Christ’s role as “an inspiration and an anchor in my life” – and about how Jesus incarnated the very virtues of reconciliation, compassion and forgiveness about which she was speaking.

On that Christmas Day 100 years ago, the German soldiers sang a carol that talked of a Christmas centuries before: Silent Night. That moment was, said Her Majesty, a reminder that “peace and goodwill have lasting power in the hearts of men and women”, and that “even in the unlikeliest of places, hope can still be found”. That is a sentiment, and an inspiration, that should remain with us long after Christmas itself has passed.

Zara was in Australia with her family but Lord Linley and Sarah Chatto attended with their children.

The Linleys or the family of Lady Sarah Chatto do not attend Sandringham every year but alternates with spending Christmas with their other sides of families. This year they didn't attend.

Lord Linley and Sarah Chatto and their families did not attend Christmas at Sandringham this year. It was the immediate family this year.

Is there any news on the Duchess of Cornwall? I believe she missed the Christmas Day service due to a back pain?

The Middleton's must have slipped in and out of church without much notice because we only got two pictures of them attending.

From daily fail mail. I'm not sure if we can trust what they write.

Quote:
The Mail has learnt that the Middletons were personally invited by the Queen to join the congregation at Sandringham yesterday, although they tactfully chose to drive themselves directly from Anmer and arrived shortly before the royal party at the main entrance.
