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.

She doesn't usually go before parliament recess, which starts on Thursday 20th this year.

I don't think the rumors are true. He went to Germany to hunt for two years in a row after he and Meghan started dating. I believe the story was neither of the princes participated in the hunt last year. Not sure why this is being rehashed.

It's pantomime season in there! They'll be throwing custard pies at each other by Wednesday.

Also, according to the latest episode of ITV's Royal Rota with Chris Ship (linked in the Electronic Library thread), the Cambridges and the Sussexes will be in attendance this year at Sandringham for Christmas festivities. And the rumors of Meghan's mother having been invited have been scotched. Perhaps Meghan's mother was intially being considered to be invited. Maybe Meghan's mother will come to visit her daughter and son-in-law sometime in December, but she won't be at Sandringtham. The rumors of Meghan's Mom moving permanently to England are also inaccurate. I could be wrong, but I thought the Middletons have actually attended Sandringham church service at least once. Of course, it's not a usual practice to invite members of in-law extended families.

[...] Now there are conflicting news reports indicating variously that Meghan's Mom "is welcome at Sandringham but she wasn't formally invited," and in other versions that Doria "turned down an invitation." The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

W&K were initially rumored to be spending Christmas with Kate's Middleton family members. But perhaps it was thought best for the 'Fab Four' to appear together again this year in a show of unity to help dispel the invidious rumors of rifts and tension.

I thought Majesty Magazine was not a tabloid. The Janaury issue has Ingrid Seward stating as fact that Doria was invited. So Majesty magazine now uses the tabloids as sources?

She may have been invited and declined that invitation. We simply don't know. Just because a person doesn't turn up doesn't mean they weren't invited in the first place.

I like all of the royal Christmas cards. They are all definitely keepsakes. Most likely, the photographer happened to take the shot and M&H really like it, and thus decided to feature it on their Xmas card. I think it's a lovely expression of the most special day of this year for them, and also a nice reflection of the fact they will be making Frogmore Cottage at Windsor their full-time residence. It is certainly an unexpected and unconventional choice for a Xmas card. But it's just a Xmas card after all.

Here's a nice feature showing British royal family Xmas cards through the years. The ones of Diana PofW with Prince Charles and their sons have reportedly been sold at auction in recent years.

Apparently Doria Ragland declined HM's invitation to celebrate Christmas at Sandringham.

Many sources said that Doria had been invited to Sandringham for Christmas - not just the DM. She isn't going which would suggest that she did say 'thank you but I will stay at home for Christmas'.

She also has to watch her visas for the UK as she is limited to how long she can be there within a twelve month period and will want to be there with her daughter when she has the baby so it probably makes more sense for her to plan to be there for the birth and Easter rather than another trip over Christmas.

I believe there was another report saying Ms. Ragland will not be at Sandringham but the Sussexes plan to leave early to spend time with her at their rented house in oxfordshire after so Ms. Ragland will likely spend the holiday season with the Sussexes but not Christmas day with them.

We really don’t know who will be at Sandringham until the family start showing up to church.

Eh, I don't know if multiple places reporting it adds any more credibility to it at this point. It just seems they are taking each other's story and either re-reporting it or adding to it.
