The fact of the matter is that when it comes to the British royal family's Christmas plans, none of them actually are made known to the public. We do know the Queen leaves for Sandringham after the Christmas Lunch with the extended royal family. We do know that they all walk to church together on Christmas morning. Those are, perhaps, the only *known* things that happen without fail.

Anything else actually was based on rumor, gossip, speculation and sometimes wishful thinking.

Did anyone ever figure out if the Queen's Christmas Luncheon is tomorrow (Wed)?

I fully agree with this--multiple reports absolutely does not mean multiple sources or verifications. I think one place has a story and almost everyone else jumps on the band wagon so as not to be left behind, whether it is true or not.

I've seen it mentioned in a few articles it is this Wednesday. It has to be because its the last Wednesday possible before Christmas which is next Tuesday.

I believe it is always the Wednesday before Christmas, so I'd say yes, it is tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the pictures.

Has there ever been a year when the Christmas Luncheon was not held on a Wednesday?

Now I've seen some sources saying that Doria was invited to Sandringham, but maybe it wasn't a formal invitation. Most likely, Doria will be traveling again to England soon to see the Sussexes, even if not over the holidays.

A lucky member of the public appears to have gotten a great photo of Harry and Meghan inside the courtyard at BP. It almost looks like Meghan is wearing a cape rather than a coat. Harry looks really happy.

ETA: apparently it's been taken down. If it appears in one of the papers, I'll let you all know that it's the one I saw.

Looks like something happened and the photo was taken down. The link tells me that the page no longer exists.

It says 'sorry, that Page does not exist' when I try the link.

However, almost everybody looks in good spirits. Wonder who it is who's driving Autumn in?

Interesting. I wonder if he's going to sell it.

I hope the family enjoy themselves. The kids will be putting the finishing touches on the tree. The Queen and Prince Philip hands out the gifts. The family gets a chance to catch up. And they get to eat.

That Charlotte make me laugh every time. She’s so cute waving to the people.

It's being reported that she has a heavy cold and had to miss the luncheon and another engagement scheduled for this evening.

The link (page before this one) that was down ...the pic is now posted on Twitter again.

Looks like Meghan is wearing a 'swing coat' (perhaps cape) and Harry is all smiles.
