You are right, they wore navy, not dark, almost black, navy.

Navy is navy. It’s not like it’s blue. Then perhaps there is a point to the argument. Nevertheless, I’m sure HMQ understand that general rule in fashion has changed and a lot of dark color outfits, even black, are made in a way that it wouldn’t be appropriate for funeral.

JMO, but I have always thought that the BRF, excepting HM, often choose navy because it is classic and because the Queen so rarely wears it. So, for family gatherings, navy is almost always a safe choice since the Queen wears its so rarely and the tendency is to dress in coordination with the Queen, but not in the same color.

Do we know what the Queen does for New Year's Eve? I imagine they still have some of the family staying - based on the pictures from church yesterday - I wonder if they have a big party or if its a quiet night in front of the TV.

By the church pics; the Wessex’s and Anne and Tim. The Queen will be hosting friends at Sandringham as well.

I think the Wessexes tend to stay at Sandringham until the children are back at school (which seems to be next Monday or later this working week depending on the school).
It was nice to see Louise at the New Year's service with her parents; she looked very grown up in her coat. She's going to be taller than Sophie soon!

“A LOVELY card. Prince Charles wants to show how dearly he loves his wife and wants people to see that she will be by his side when he is monarch.

When I saw this picture on Kensington Palace IG from the DDoS 2019 Pakistani Tour, it reminded me of DDoS Christmas 2018 picture and how much criticism was leveled against "their backs to the camera" photo.

Do you think that both Princess Beatrice of York and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will come to Sandringham?

> W&C have spent Christmas in Berkshire with the Middleton's on several occasions, and the Philips and Tindall families are also not always there.

> Personally, I would think it odd if they chose to spend it at FC. If they are away, that is a different matter.

My own thinking is that when it comes to holidays and family gatherings, with the Queen and Philip being in their 90s, their family has grown immensely down through great grandchildren even. If anyone realizes that as kids and grandkids get older and marry and have families of their own, they're also gaining their own extended families in the process.

I don't see the family gatherings at Balmoral or Sandringham as being a "command appearance" nor a snub to the Queen if someone should decline to attend because of other plans or preferences for their own holiday. Its also private downtime for the members of the royal family and none of the public's concern with how they spend it.

In the past few days reporters have said the Sussexes are spending Christmas in L.A., Sandringham and also Africa. They don't know. Why ppl are acting like it's some breech of protocol (to not be at Sandringham) is beyond me....as already pointed out, it's been done before by other royals.

If it's true--which is always a very big "if"--it's an interesting data point. Is it significant? Who knows? It might mean nothing more than, like a lot of families, the Sussexes will alternate where they spend the holidays between his family and her family. What will be interesting, and potentially more meaningful, will be if the Sussexes don't show up for Christmas at Sandringham next year, and don't visit Balmoral this next summer. Then there's a distinct pattern. Until then, all there is is piles of speculation and no facts.

The reporters want to gin another Sussex "scandal". Play off the interview, the Sussex vs Cambridge "feud", speculation they are leaving the the BRF you name it. A non Sandrngham Christmas may have been the works all the long for all we know. I hope the have a lovely Christmas and they may spend it with Doria- and meet the Raglands possibly. The Markles will throw a paid interview fit but expected if that happened

You may have a point there, lets see how things develop over the next year or so.
