Thanks for the reply Dman. So we'll be expecting photos of the arrivals this year, like the previous years.

Taking the children to the extended family lunch makes sense when they are able to comprehend what is going on but could be very scary for the very young so I suspect that neither George nor Maud would be in attendance this year.

As for church - no George until about 2017 or 2018 when he is old enough to behave appropriately.

Zara is due in January but depending on when in January will determine whether or not she attends Christmas with the others. When Autumn was due in late December they didn't attend then as she stayed at home and Anne's branch of the family stayed with them in Gloucestershire. Now if Zara is due in the first week in January I could see this happening again - no Anne or her family at Sandringham so they are all able to support Zara but if she is due mid-late January then Christmas at Sandringham is a probability.

Based on Kate's comments about George liking seeing all the people about at his christening, he may enjoy the big family BP lunch.

I would hope we will get to see them arrive at the lunch this year.

IIRC Lady Rose Gilman brought a very young Rufus to the lunch last year and I don't really see how a Christmas lunch can be scary. Overwhelming, sure, but hardly scary (at least that's my own experience with a large extended family). I would understand if William and Catherine decided not to bring George though. Given his young age, there's nothing for him to do there except being showed off. Same goes for Frederick, Sophie and Maud.

I don't think Zara will travel to Sandringham as she looks like she already dropped.

She may attend the lunch but that's a big if, especially if she plans to deliver in Glouchester.

I don't think we'll see George at Sandringham, maybe the lunch.

I think this year will be James' debut at the Sandringham church.
He is more than old enough as Margarita Armstrong-Jones was attending church when she was younger than James.

Freddie and Sophie told Hello magazine they were taking Maud to BP for the lunch. I think it's a nice idea as it's one of the rare occasions the whole family get together so they probably hardly ever get the chance to see each other's children. I hope George goes too as it will be the first time some family members will have met him.

I can't see them bringing a 5 month old with them to the lunch - I agree, but knowing them they might! He will go with them to Sandringham of course. Sophie and Edward brought James with them to Sandringham and he was 8 days old. Sophie didn't go to the service though, but they brought their tiny new born baby as Edward said he was there.

We are missing out on another Christmas debate topic- Will the Cambridges bring Lupo to Sandringham for Christmas? :) It would be his first holiday visit since last year they went to Buckleberry. The queen's corgis might not want another dog around. They tried to take out Bea's dog in Balmoral that one year.

Do we have any information on when this week the big family lunch at BP might be?

I think it is to be this week sometime as I read on Tumblr that the Queen is heading to Sandringham this week. Maybe Wednesday or Thursday?

Lady Frederick Windsor said Maud's christening, which took place today, was the day before the Annual Big Royal Gathering, as I call it, for Christmas, so I think it is tomorrow then..
