Small but certainly colourful this Christmas morning

I have just seen on the BBC World Service a picture of the Duke of York walking side by side with the Prince of Wales in a sign of support from his elder brother. Was that picture taken on their way to the private service then ?

That’s correct. I posted said picture about an hour or so ago.

Not quite sure how you got the “sign of support” bit when they were just walking to church though.

Karen Anvil the photographer who took the Fab Four shot in 2017, got this fantastic shot of Charlotte when handing her a gift;

The RF are just leaving; Sophie is returning in the car with The Queen and Camilla is walking.

Zara and Mike, I believe, are about to get on a plane for Australia and so didn't want the hassle of doing Christmas Day at Sandringham and then almost immediately have to pack the kids up again to set out for Oz.

Everyone looks very festive for the church service, and it is wonderful to see George and Charlotte included. They did well!

The Phillips were not at the Queen’s family Christmas lunch last week either. I’d guess they are visiting Autumn’s family this year.

I'm glad Andrew didn't walk with the family for the 11 am service. It ran the risk of turning into an ugly headline grabbing situation. Apparently he went before the public was let in to line the roads.

There are two services the one Andrew attended is at 9 a.m and I believe before people line up to see the royals. Andrew didn't attend the 11 a.m service which is where the public can see them arrive. As for a sign of support they are brothers, no matter what Charles is not going to disown his brother no matter how stupid he is.

And yes, Andrew attended the earlier Christmas service. That’s been discussed.

Perfect Christmas Day from the Royals IMO:

The picture of Cambridges by Kate was fab, I always think black and white covers up a bit of imperfection and apparently they had just been swimming so maybe helps cover the wet hair. Anyway its a lovely picture and nice that the Cambridge's are sharing more with us!

Nice Christmas day service, nice to see HM and Camilla arriving together and still including Sophie by riding home with her. It allowed us pictures of Charles William and George together.

Nice the children made their first appearance, about time and helps focus on the mainline future of the monarchy

Good decision about Andrew, the 9am service is private and more of a private family thing IMO. The later service is, to me, basically an official duty that just includes the wider family. Andrew attending that would have been making a point and its right he stayed away

The Queen seemed very smiley and happy, loved Camilla and Anne comparing their purple coats!!

Just HM’s Christmas Speech to ace now and it will be a super successful Christmas after a difficult year.

I am sorry not a fan of the new Cambridge picture. It looked like a bad attempt at being artistic and just didn't work. And if they were going to release another photo, something recent and with all would be more festive.

Good choice by Andrew. Still church as part of the family and Christmas, but the earlier service.

Great seeing Edo there with them this year.

Extended aside, the queen's immediate family slimmed down a bit. I suspect the Sussexes are not the only ones enjoying a Canadian Christmas. If true, I am sure after all these years of Windsor Christmas, nice for autumn to take her husband and daughters home to her family holidays. So all the fuss about Archie, and of the queen's eight great grandchildren, only three were there.

The Cambridge kids were cute and well behaved.

Festive dress. My list for women

1 Anne
2 Beatrice
3 tie for Elizabeth and Camilla
4 Kate
5 Eugenie
6 Sophie
