Arbiter worries that the non stop attacks will end up backfiring on the media and the very thing they don't want to occur just might.
I think Victoria is one of the few voices of reason among the Royal Reporters right now.

I kind of agree with her about the Christmas card photo--I think Harry and Meghan just loved the photo and wanted to share it, with no hidden meaning or message.

According to the front page of the Mirror, Harry won’t take part in the Christmas pheasant shoot because of Meghan.

Yeah, me too.

There are some weird over the top criticisms of the Sussexes' Christmas card photo and comparing the fireworks to the Blitz is one of them.

I see love and happiness exploding.

I’m having dejavu. They printed this exact story last year.

Not sure why people are surprised the kiddos were a hit. They always are. Just like the weddings were and I’m sure the upcoming new baby will be. Those are easy sells. Weddings and babies. We were spoiled this year.

This is not new. Harry begged off of hunting last Christmas for Meghan except in Germany.

The tabloids are running out of material so they are recycling. Yeah this mess is dying down.

Is there a peasant shoot on Christmas Day? I thought it was on Boxing Day?

The article clearly states that it's about the Boxing day shoot.

Several bickering posts and and posts adding nothing to the discussion have been deleted. This is supposed to be a thread discussing Christmas with the British Royal Family, not a platform to bash the media, nor a platform for point scoring or for perpetuating speculation, rumour and gossip.
Those wishing to carry on a private point-scoring feud may do so if they must by PM and not within the threads.
Let's please have some mutual respect for one another and not bicker over something as innocuous as a Christmas card.

There is usually a pHeasant shoot on Boxing Day , though I am sure at times Prince Philip would have been happy to shoot a few peasants as well!

Especially if the peasants carried reporters notebooks or cameras!

I know you mean pheasants not peasants.

Game shooting doesn't take place on Sundays or Christmas Day. Boxing Day is a traditional sporting day so that's why it happens then (and on many other days within the shooting season).

It not a big deal - two years ago Prince William skipped the Boxing day shoot for Kate Middleton.

Oh, Megs! What were you thinking?Royal Christmas cards divide our expert panel so which one would you prefer sitting on YOUR mantlepiece?
-Strikingly different cards show both traditional warmth and seasonal glamour
-Dickie Arbiter, ex-press spokesman for Queen, preferred relaxed Cambridges
-Margaret Holder, royal screenwriter, said it was 'fascinating' that Meghan picked a photo so reminiscent of the save-the-date card from her first wedding

I don't think she leaves for Norfolk until after the Christmas Lunch she throws for the entire extended family. I've not heard of that happening and someone mentioned that its usually on Wednesday in the week before Christmas?

May even be this week. Has anyone heard?

No, not yet. She have to host the extended family pre-Christmas lunch first. Yes, I think that’s this week. She and the Duke of Edinburgh are enjoying the holidays at Windsor too before departing for Sandringham.
