On Christmas Eve, for the first time in more than 100 years, three generations of heirs to the throne will gather beneath the 18ft Norfolk pine in the white drawing room at Sandringham House. This has been a year of firsts for the Royal family – a birth largely ungoverned by protocols, an ever-closer relationship with the Middleton in-laws – and Christmas marks yet another milestone, as Prince George and his parents join the Queen for celebrations.

The Telegraph allows you to read 10 articles "free of charge". After that, they want you to subscribe. But as Spheno pointed out, if after you read those 10 articles, you use a different browser, the Telegraph doesn't recognize you, and allows you to read more articles. Don't tell anyone, but I use three different browsers.

They kept doing this to me. I guess I b***hed enough to them about it I haven't seen the message in quite a long time and I know I read more than 10 articles. I even got the message when they used to allow 20 articles a month!

Royal family members to sleep in servants quarters as the Queen invites 30 to Sandringham | Royal | News | Daily Express

Mainly the article talks about how once again some members of the Royal Family will have to stay in servants rooms as there will be 30 people staying at Sandringham.
It also mentions that at the start of her reign the Queen and her family celebrated Christmas at Sandringham but that as there were more and more people in the family they moved Christmas to Windsor.
I never knew the Queen had moved her Christmas from Sandringham to Windsor, I always thought Christmas was always celebrated at Windsor until the fire. Maybe the Queen would consider moving her Christmas celebrations to Windsor once more.

It is entirely possible. Sandringham is pretty much at max capacity. As the queen's grandchildren get married and have kids, I can see them going back to Windsor where there is more room. I don't see the Queen not inviting David and Sarah's families to Sandringham. The Queen has always been close to them.

The Queen though is nearing the end of her reign - sad but true - and I don't see a change coming. Next year William and Kate won't be in the big house and possibly Harry will stay with them rather than in the 'big house'. There are also other houses on the estate they could use - let David and Sarah and their families for instance stay in Wood House although do all the other things at the big house.

I can also see more of the grandchildren not going to Sandringham and splitting Christmas with their in-laws, as William and Kate did last year.

When Charles is King I would expect the numbers to be smaller - with possibly not even his siblings all invited every year - allowing for a rotation.

I understand your argument but it seems to me it is based on the premis that this is all about the Queen. If that were true then if the King invites you for Christmas, then I think the family would go as they do now. Its become as much a tradition for them as it is for her.

Charles, if not apparently close to his siblings, does seem close to most of the next generation. He is particularly fond of Sarah Chatto for example. His children are close to their cousins and he'd like to maintain that, IMO.

I think the atmosphere might be more relaxed than now, as it seems the Queen has the Edwardian Christmas her parents enjoyed.

I think that there will be little change in attendees - and certainly not immediately as the family would want to be seen to support the new King.

I agree that this is a likely scenario for future BRF Christmases with King Charles.

I do think it is all about The Queen and being there for her - note how Beatrice and Eugenie never get to see their own mother at Christmas (or Peter and Zara for that matter see their own father). That is unreasonable in most families.

Sarah Chatto is Charles' own generation and being 'fond' doesn't necessarily mean you need to see them at Christmas or that they want to always spend Christmas with a cousin rather than with the other side of their family.

I don't think that William is particularly close to his younger cousins and he has already had one Christmas with the Middleton's and I expect that will happen more and more - next year I would expect him to be with them rather than with the royals, unless they are also at Anmer Hall.

Charles also enjoys the formalities etc that he has grown up - I don't see it more relaxed under Charles - just a different and smaller family group - Charles and Camilla, William, Harry and their families and possibly Tom and Laura and their families.

I see the biggest change in attendees happening - replacing siblings and cousins with step-children so that his wife can also have Christmas with her family.

agree to disagree then

Point of fact - I wouldn't call Sarah Chatto "Charles generation" she was born in 1964, and is not 50 until May 1 2014. Same age as Sophie.

I am not sure if I would put Sophie and Charles in the same generation or not...I mean Edward and Charles are both children of the Queen but there is quite an age gap. I suppose they are the same generation in a sense, but Edward and Sophie are in completely different life stages than Charles is.

Well I would never have put Diana in the same generation as Charles and she was 3 years older than Sophie and Sarah Chatto. When Charles was 31 and getting married, Edward and Sophie were still at school. Having the same parent does not mean you are of the same generation.
