Was this the first time he's made a Christmas address to the armed forces? I hope that he makes this an annual event.

I, too, was impressed.

I think this is an absolutely lovely tradition that will be kept up in the future. I bet everybody gets together and has a ball!

Great tradition. Allows all the family, including those who may not make it to Sandringham this year, to celebrate together. I hope the tradition continues woth Charles, especially if those included at sandringham get paired down with him, allow the extended family to still all gather

Lady Sarah's Hat

At first I thought Lady Sarah was wearing an unusual version of one of her flying saucer hats- but it was the rear view mirror!

I have no doubt this tradition will carry into the next reign, it seems like a relaxed occasion to bring the whole family together.

Yes I agree. The BRF is so very large now that I'm not sure that even Windsor Castles has enough available bedrooms to accommodate QEII's immediate family and her cousins and their families.

Lucky Kate...she has the best chauffeurs! lol I see George back there too!

The media kills me...still trying to make it seem like Harry is moping around in a state of depression. Good grief.

Wow for a second I admit I didn't recognize William I was wondering why Harry had a chauffeur drive him. Maybe William didn't trust his driving skills wth his don (didn't see Kate in back in photo first saw).

But yes the papers seem to be going out of the way to make Harry some love sick puppy who is miserable whenever not with Meghan.

Princess Alexandra is there...in a car driven by her son, James.

No Marina though.

I can't imagine the Gloucester's not showing up.

I don't know why the media focusses only on the 'central' ones even at these occasions. This and Trooping are the only times we see others. Maybe bcos other than a very few people like me, no one cares about them..

It's not really about who "cares" about them. It's about how much the paps can get for a picture. A picture of Catherine or George is worth more than a picture of The Duchess of Gloucester. It's what sells unfortunately. Other royals are an after thought.

Exactly. The media coverage that we get from certain occasions such as the Queen's Christmas Lunch is based solely on the exploitation value that text and pictures can garner from it.

On the other hand, its a happy and wonderful gathering of family who probably don't give a fig what the media coverage is like.
