Duchess of Cornwall was not present. There was a rumor she's not feeling well and that's why she missed the Christmas Lunch last week.
I think Prince Andrew was in the car with the Queen.

A very nice curtsey from Meghan! Last year her curtsey was fine, but she looked a bit ill at ease, this year she's got it down perfectly.

I would expect William and Catherine to be at Anmer, but they would be spending today at Sandringham with the whole family.
The Sussexes were with the Cambridges last year. Looks like they were back this year. The press seemed to get it wrong... again. Shocker.

The Yorks wouldn't have been going to Anmer for lunch.
No, they are curtsying and bowing because itís the first theyíve seen HMQ that day whereas the others wouldíve curtsied and bowed at the house earlier. The York Princesses did not curtsy on the steps last year. They were standing right behind the Cambridges and Sussexes last year and watched as HMQ left.

Cue the tabloids! "Meghan forced to stay with Kate at Anmer by the Queen!"

Wait for it!

The tabloids have to come up with a new "drama" as to why they got it wrong that the Sussexes did in fact stay with the Cambridges this year!

There's not actually a great deal of comfortable space for everyone at Sandringham for overnight. At least, that's what I've heard discussed here previously.

But I didn't realize curtseying is any indication of not seeing the Queen again later.

Of course Kate and Meghan weren't going to go Real Housewives at Sandringham. But look at the crowd reactions to both women. Smiles, hugs, flowers, pictures. The crowd didn't buy into the media noise and I don't think the public overall doesn't either. Meghan's curtsy was great. I wonder what gag gift Meghan was get - a box of Pampers (diapers, nappies)?

Typically they curtesy the first time they see the Queen (or senior royal) then they don't for the rest of that gathering.

Itís an indication they havenít seen her earlier today. Curtsying bowing at hello and goodbye. They donít do it in church, so itís right after the service.

I believe the curtsy and bow is only to HMQ and Prince Philip. They donít curtsy or bow to any other fellow royal.

Now the REAL question from that video. Who forgot they are supposed to ride back with the Queen? Andrew or Beatrice? It looked like they were both surprised.

I've seen them (Cambridges for sure and Harry..can't remember about Meghan) bow/curtesy to Charles and Camilla.

Lol, the curtsy is just a proper respect of seeing The Queen off. Right now they’re all gathering to watch the Christmas message. I’ll be tuning in.

The Queen’s Christmas Message can be viewed here- 3pm NOW

I think the curtsey / bow thing is being overblown. I think they did it last year for whatever reason and then felt they should do the same again. As much as we like to think its all spontaneous you can see Anne waiting to allow W&K go in front of her so its clear they know that the "scene" on the church steps in important. Equally there isn't enough room for all the family to bow curtsey probably unless we want them falling off the steps.

Everywhere I have seen says they were staying at Sandringham with the Queen and its been suggested part of the reason they stayed at Anmer last year was because they were unmarried and the Queen doesn't usually have unmarried couples staying for Christmas so it would have created an unfair precedent.

It was nice to see Kate and Anne chatting away as they left church.

This makes sense. As its tradition that they all walk to church en famille and then congregate back at the Big House for Christmas Lunch and the Queen's Speech, it makes sense that those that were staying at Amner Hall drove over to the Big House, parked there and joined the family. Their car would be there waiting for the return home after the activities for the day were done.

Perhaps by stating that they stayed at Sandringham could mean that they stayed on the Sandringham Estate which Amner Hall is a part of. The Queen's residence is referred to as the "Big House".

Tim Laurence bows his head (I think Jack does was well), so I’m not sure the bowing/curtseying tells us anything at all about where Meghan and Harry are staying.

They stayed with the Cambridges but they all head over to Sandringham and walk from there to the Church.

How do we all know who stayed with whom? Was it announced somewhere and if so please let us know. I haven't seen any announcement from KP or BP as to where the Susses's were staying nor did the Cambridge's announce it.....or are we all guessing here all because of last year maybe......times change and people do move on to other things!
