You will find a lot of the family's Christmas cards on eBay.

Whether it's the Queen's official Christmas car or not, that photo is lovely!

I know it is private time, but I would like to see the Queen decked out in her hunting attire. I know she was not going out on the hunt with the rainy weather, but I am sure she dressed appropriately. ☺

I don't see why she'd dress for hunting when she stayed inside with Catherine.

That doesn't seem to be a real card, a personal Christmas card wouldn't have been sold in national stores and it would be signed.

That card says 'a portion of the sale of this card goes to charity'.

Different visit to Church. Camilla wore purple to the Christmas Day service.

An Ard Ri, yes. It was an earlier service on Christmas Day as well as the later one. The family (including the Queen, I believe) attend an early service before the crowds arrive.

She may have dressed in the past. The women often go out and collect their men's pheasants. I have seen many images of Sophie and Anne dressed in hunting gear collecting their husband's pheasants. But yes, I imagine the Queen did not go out this year, particularly if she is recovering from a cold.

Looking over the various images of the card, one says "A proportion from the sale of this card is given to charity." To me, that means the card was available for purchase.

It was raining, and I am sure she was in rubber boots. I think she is adorable in her out in the country clothes. I bet she dressed to hunt because she likes it.

That would make it very early as the crowds start growing at 4.00 a.m.

Duchess of Cambridge misses Sandingham church service as Queen greets well-wishers - Telegraph
Quote:
Buckingham Palace would not comment on the reasons for the pair’s decision not to attend, although sources suggest that Prince William, a Royal Air Force pilot, is on standby for search and rescue duties between Christmas and New Year.
In fact most of the Royal Family didn't attend the church service.

The rest of the family have left Sandringham. The Wessex's are normally the family who stay into the New Year, so it's no surprise the Cambridge's were not there.

Fancy hat! Countess of Wessex sports oversized headwear as she accompanies the Queen to church at Sandringham | Mail Online
Quote:
The Countess was wrapped up warm against the elements in the angled fawn hat and near-matching overcoat, as she accompanied a small contingent of the Royal Family to the service.
The Countess escorted by the Queen was driven the short distance from Sandringham house in a Bentley.

I was amazed at yesterday's article in the Telegraph. Apparently Andrew Parker-Bowles Christmas gift to Camilla was a framed cartoon about the topless pictures taken of Kate. The Duchess of Cornwall and the gift she had to hide from Kate Middleton - Telegraph . Really bad taste on Andrew's part, IMO.

This doesn't make sense and seems like a lie. Why would Camilla open gifts from APB or her kids at Sandringham. She would open family gifts at Ray mill where she goes every year on the 26th. Also Kate was not there on Christmas so Camilla didn't have to hide anything. Also this Mandrake guy gets things wrong. Last month he said Tom PB was moving to the US to be a life coach.

I think this whole thing needs to be moved to DOC family thread.

We don't know if the story is true.

And even if Andrew did buy it, we do not know if he gifted it to Camilla.

If it was a gift for Camilla, it would not have been at Sangringham.

I don't think the cartoon is anyway an attack on Kate. I think it cute, if Andrew gave it to his ex-wife.

The badgers are being blamed for something they did not do.
(In reference to Kate alone, how many times have the media blamed Camilla?)

When you think along those lines, it is very sweet of APB.

I can't believe that anyone would so something that crass, nasty misogynistic. It's beyond bad taste. It's a strike against Kate, a woman he probably does not even know, for something she had no control over, a woman now going through a problem pregnancy with all of that attendant drama and tragedy. It's cruel.

I hope it's not true, but if it's in the Telegraph, I tend to believe it. I'll have to read the article.

When I first saw this, I thought how lovely that APB and Camilla are still close after all these years and what they've been through.

For all we know, the cartoon was hilarious and even Kate would get a good chuckle out of it. That APB would give Camilla something humorous doesn't surprise me in the least as he's known Camilla for eons and we've gotten glimpses into Camilla's wicked sense of humor over the years.

Perhaps the press is once again trying to create a mountain out of mole hill.

I'm glad I actually read the article rather than just the comments about it. The cartoon sounds really cute and funny to me! It's about the badger cull more than Kate: a humorous comment on two topical events. Making the badgers scapegoats for all the sins of the world, including the photos of Kate, in an attempt to justify the controversial cull. Works for me. I suspect Camilla would have thought it was a hoot, and Charles, and possibly even William and Kate would have had a chuckle over it.
