Sandringham allegedly gets so full over Christmas that some of the Royal Family have stayed in staff quarters on occasions.

Queen to refer to 'moments of darkness' in Christmas speech - BBC News

Queen's Message: Light Shines In The Darkness
Quote:
Queen's Message: 'Light Shines In The Darkness'

The Queen's Christmas address describes the festive period as "a time to remember all that we have to be thankful for".

The Queen will speak about the "moments of darkness" faced by many across the globe this year and highlight the Bible as a source of solace during her Christmas Day address.
Queen's Speech to confront 'darkness' that has hit the world in 2015 | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Flanked by photos of her nearest and dearest, the Queen uses her annual Christmas message to thank 'people who bring happiness into our lives' but also confronts 'darkness' that has hit the world in 2015

The Queen will use her Christmas Day message to highlight the 'moments of darkness' the world has confronted but will also speak about the Christian message of light triumphing over the dark.

A series of terrorist atrocities have shocked the world during 2015, from the mass shootings and bombings in Paris last month to the gun attack at a Tunisia resort during the summer.

But the Queen, whose address traditionally has a strong religious framework reflecting her own faith, will sound an optimistic tone when she quotes a verse from the Bible.

Very symbolic images from the speech. It shows us the future, and it is a sad reminder that as the years go by, the closer we come the unimaginable day when the Queen dies.

The Queen looked in good spirits as she led members of the Royal Family to the traditional Christmas Day service on the Sandringham estate.

Her Majesty was followed by her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, sons, Prince Charles and Prince Andrew, and her daughter-in-law the Duchess of Cornwall. Moments later, Prince Harry was seen alongside his cousins, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, who both looked sophisticated in long coats.

I agree about the images. I love especially this informal picture of her with the Duke.

I like the very pretty brooch. And the Queen was wrapped up very snugly in her old fur coat for the first service!

It looks a lot like the acorn brooch she wore on May 18, 2012 at the Jubilee lunch. I wonder if it's the same one or just a very similar one.

Are the Tindalls and Phillips there? I haven't seen then. I saw bits of the Linleys and Chattos.

I thought that the Tindalls were suppose to be in Australia for Christmas. That's why they got all their presents at the Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. As they drove away their back seat was filled with presents.

Kate has a sister and a brother I would guess they will join her for Christmas along with her parents. That would be two more bedrooms used.

The Middletons weren't seen at church or the soccer game, like they were last year. I don't think they're at Anmer this year. The Daily Mail lied.
