^ He does indeed, and as usual he was smiling and greeting well wishers in not very good weather.

I think Anne looks fabulous! Love the new green coat. I think it's new. I'm not so sure about that brown suede shoulder bag. I think it might have seen a few tours of duty. I had something very similar back in the 70s. I love the fact she uses shoulder bags. As long as you keep them small so you don't overload them and ruin your shoulders, they are so much more convenient than handbags.

I love HM’s red outfit. She even has a matching brolly! <strike>I am prepared to forgive her the dead animal trim. I will give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that whatever they were when they were alive was farmed, not wild caught, and that they were killed humanely.</strike> I've changed my mind. I'm pretty sure they were chinchillas. I do not condone farming animals in that way for the sole purpose of human vanity.

Philip looks very dapper.

Charles and Camilla are turned out well.

I love Kate’s outfit. The different greens are drawn together in the dress she’s wearing underneath. Love the black boots and gloves and purse, which she seems to have been practising carrying in positions other than across her crotch. Good move, Kate! William looks boring, as always, but at least he’s in grey, not blue, this time.

Nice to see Louise starting to dress her age.

Beatrice and Eugenie still need a lot of help. They both looked OK till I got to their feet.

Could someone be so kind and explain to me why there are two services attended by members of the Royal family on Christmas Day. One, earlier in the morning that seems to be private; and, one later which seems to be much more public.


Thank you.

Is the church at Sandringham on the Queen's private property or is it a community church? I'm asking because last year I read that the Middletons had to be invited to attend services on Christmas morning. Plus, you never see any one other than royals going into or exiting the church.

Every year since George was born I read speculation about whether he will attend church services. In seeing this is the first year James Viscount Severn attended, I wonder if there is family rule about what age the children are allowed to attend. I don't expect to see George until he is an age similar to James' this year.

I think they want the children to be able to sit through a service.

St Mary's at Sandringham is an entirely public church. It's just that, when royalty attend services there the public is excluded, except for invitees of course. This is almost certainly for security and privacy reasons.

The Queen is a deeply religious woman. On Christmas Day she and the Duke make a point of attending an early service and a later one. It's the later one that most of the other royals turn up to.

Viscount Linley's daughter attended in 2007 when she was 5, so there doesn't seem to be a distinct age.

Yep, I think it's less to do with a specific age, and more to do with having kids who are old enough to not cause a distraction. I mean, in a lot of churches, younger kids stay in a nursery or perhaps in Sunday school. Or sometimes when kids get too squirmy, their parents might take them out of the congregation to quiet down for a few minutes (at least, these are things I'm accustomed to at church). However, it's a bit of a different circumstance with the royals, so I assume it's just easier not to bring the little ones if they're not yet able to sit through a service, and I think that age differs from child to child.

We'll have to agree to disagree about Beatrice's appearance in that photo. In my opinion she looks quite nice, but absolutely nowhere near "stunningly elegant".

For me Lady Violet, eh... I mean, Camilla, stole the show. What an elegant black-and-grey appearance. The perfect hat, the gloves, the umbrella, the eye-popping pearls and the diamond broche... Ten out of ten!

I think they all looked great dressed up in their best Christmas finery but, IMO, the person that really stole the show has to be HM, The Queen. That red outfit with the black fur trim were the perfect accessories to her beaming smile.

To me though, they could have been all wearing potato sacks as I think the most heartwarming part of the whole morning is to see generations of a family all gathered together to attend Christmas morning services together. You don't see that too much anymore.

Thank you.
I think the morning service is a Communion service and the later service a 'usual' service of prayer and carols. As far as I can remember before Philip was taken to hospital in 2013 we never really saw pictures of the early morning church service but now it seems to be the 'norm' that we get pictures from both.
