What a lovely card from Charles and Camilla! I wish we saw all the families Christmas cards.

I always like seeing the photos of the BRF going to the Christmas lunch as it's a chance to see the more minor members of the family who don't get photographed regularly.

I wonder where Princess Margaret's children and grandchildren were as they often attend the Christmas lunch.

Prince George's hair appears to have gotten darker and curlier, though the colour could be due to the lighting, but Catherine has dark hair and a lot of children become darker as they grow older so his hair could have indeed changed colour.

I know this article was posted in the brooches thread, but I post it here too.

The Queen and Prince Philip board a train to Sandringham from London | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Off on one's Xmas holidays: The Queen and Prince Philip board a train to Sandringham for traditional seasonal break (he's armed with a book while she has her iPad mini)

Flanked by her personal staff and police escorts, Her Majesty smiled warmly at well-wishers as she stepped aboard her cordoned off first class carriage.

Never one to dress down, The Queen looked sophisticated in a pastel pink-coloured boucle coat adorned with pearl buttons, a matching skirt that fell just below her knees and black gloves.

Meanwhile, the Duke of Edinburgh, 94, looked smart in a navy suit, light blue-hued striped shirt and patterned silk tie.

While Prince Philip decided to pass the journey time by reading a hardback book, onlookers spotted The Queen leafing through her paperwork and scrolling through her mini iPad.

The Queen is said to have ordered the device back in 2011 after being given a crash course on it by her grandsons, Prince William and Prince Harry.

A royal insider told The Sun at the time: 'The Queen hadn’t seen anything like the iPad before. She was very impressed.

'She was particularly taken with how easy it was to use, the large screen and how light it was.

'For a woman of her age, she is very switched on. It was only a matter of time before she asked someone to go and get her one.'

They added: 'The Princes think it is hilarious. They love the fact that their gran wants an iPad and think she’s really cool.'

The Queen is a big fan of Apple gadgets and is believed to own at least two iPods.
The Queen, she looked great as usual.

It is also from Sandringham that the Queen's annual Christmas speech is broadcast.
I think the last time the Queen spoke from Sandringham was in 1996, so they (the mail/fail) were wrong again.

Quote:
Smiling broadly in a bright pink coat, the 89-year-old monarch and her consort Prince Philip, 94, took the scheduled 1044 service from London King's Cross to King's Lynn to begin their seasonal stay at Sandringham.

They sat in a cordoned off First Class carriage and were believed to be travelling on £54.90 First Class tickets for the 1 hour 37 minute journey on the Great Northern service.

Witnesses said the Queen spent much of the journey looking at a mini-iPad, while Philip took a book for the journey.

She's just like one of us – almost. The Queen shunned royal transport on Thursday morning to take an ordinary passenger train to Norfolk, where she will be spending the Christmas period at her country estate Sandringham.

Even though it's from the Daily Mail, I really like the chronological overview of these cards. And this year's card is really pretty. It reveals a rarely seen pictographic closeness between the two.

I adore the picture of Charles and Camilla. There is so much warmth in it!

The picture of the family of William is lovely as well.

There is conflicting reports on what the Cambridges are doing. The mail is saying basically the same as last year. Christmas Eve with Royals, Church and then back to Anmer . Camilla Tominey of the Express says they are staying at Sandringham and doing everything with the Queen.

Don't know which is correct. If they are alternating, it's the royals turn. I thought last year was the perfect solution. With Christmas Eve being the big Royal gift day, you go to the big house on 24 and then church with every one on the 25 and then spend time with Kate's family afterwards.

They always say Sandringham is crowded at Christmas. Why would the Cambridges spend the night there when they have a house minutes away? That would free up some rooms for others. Even if they spend all the time with royals they could just drive over and back.

There are even confliciting reports on the photo the Cambirdges have released (Charlotte is sais to have been photoshopped), so I don't mind them, as they alway have nothing important to say...

So basically, the press has no idea at all what the Cambridges are doing and are making up conflicting stories.

I wonder how may bedrooms there are at Sandringham House as the media always make it sound very over crowded at Christmas!

...And we will never really know what they do especially behind closed doors on large country estates so it will always be speculation until/unless the RF comment themselves.
