I understand what did you mean by the other attendance at Church Services in Sandringham, they are all the pre-Christmas Service( i think that what they call) of the Prince of Wales himself, we have seen some pics of the Duchess attended those Services often along with King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie, and Princess Alexandra of Kent.
So it is her first Christmas Service in Sandringham that along with the Queen and other members of The Royal Family and of course as a member of the Royal Family The Duchess herself now, not her first time in Sandringham.
yes, I think it might have been the pre-christmas service Camilla has attended before but maybe it was the Easter service? I think it was this past year that Camilla joined Charles and, as you said, King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie, and Princess Alexandra of Kent, for a service at Sandringham for Easter. ?

I'm not really sure about the easter Service, Casiraghi, but i have seen it was exactly in Sandringham at some Services sometimes around the beginning of December.You can find pictures from Charles and Camilla current events thread, and not just this year, i think i have seen of last year and also in 2003 as well.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is seen in the Chapel at Buckingham Palace, central London in this picture dated December 15, 2005, where she recorded her Christmas broadcast to the Commonwealth. The Queen praised the generous humanitarian response and compassion shown to those who suffered from the succession of natural disasters and acts of terror during the past year.

Beatrice certainly takes after the Windsor women in the hats department, doesn't she? Why do the royal women wear such ugly hats? Miss Beatrice always has to make some fashion statement, I guess. I think the infamous boots was 2002, right?

Beatrix is emerging as a really beuatiful royal lady. I first noticed it at Charmillas wedding and here too. The hat is weird but she is beautiful. Euginie too, she looks like her father but is really pretty. I was reading that a ginormous crowd of 2,000 people went to watch the royals. When asked why they came nearly all said to see Camilla. Reporters noted that the crowds size was the same as "the diana days". Its amazing, once this women was pellted with breadrolls and now she draws a crowd of thousands of people. Go Camilla.

I hope you will enjoy my own little retrospective of Sandringham Christmas Past (courtesy of Rex Features). I thought about putting the pics here via some hosting site, but realized it would be easier to put them all together on my geocities account. I'll be adding much more later. It's especially fun to look back over the "diana days". Diana always seemed so happy at Sandringham. I think she really missed it when she had to move at age 14 and really loved returning years later as Princess of Wales. I'm sure Camilla likes it there as well, but probably shares the Prince's general preference for Balmoral. :)

Thanks. I love the pic of Charles and William leaving the church in 1995. I also love the one of Philip with his hand on Eugenie's head.

The Queens Christmas Speech of 2005

Here is an article on the Queens speech this year. It includes video of the speech and the text.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4558418.stm

I really liked this years speech. It had a very good message. It was sombre but 2005 was a very sad and tumultuous year. I wish her goverment would listen to her message of peace. She didnt show any members of the RF or talk about them this year. But, she did have the choir which was a very nice addition. Will BBC do the speech next year or ITV again.

I think ITN and BBC do the speech alternate years so it should be the BBC next year. I agree that it had a very good message and it is a pity that no members of the RF were included but perhaps she felt showing them opening pressies etc woulldn't fit in with the general mood of the speech.
