Mike Tindall reveals the royal children ate in a different room at the Queen's pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace - while he dined on a table with Prince Charles
Former England rugby ace reveals which table he sat on at royal Christmas lunch
Revealed their were around 70 people at family event and he didn't drink alcohol
There are seven tables and the 'kiddies' have their own table in a different room
Described the event as 'lovely, really good' and said he sat with Prince Charles

Mike Tindall has shared some rare insights into the Queen's pre-Christmas lunch - revealing that the royal children, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are given their own table in a separate room.

The former England rugby player, 41, from Otley, who is married to the monarch's granddaughter Zara Phillips, 38, made the revelations on JOE UK's House of Rugby podcast.

He told how he sat with his uncle-in-law Prince Charles, 71, at Buckingham Palace and described the annual event as 'lovely'.

'This is the other one, the family lunch, there must be about 70 of us there – there are seven tables and then the kiddies have their own little one in a different room,' he said while being quizzed by fellow ex-rugby star James Haskell and host Alex Payne.

Well that is her name. And she is just referred to as the Duchess of Cambridge and he as Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

I think in this day and age, where many people people keep their names I don't see a problem calling her Kate Middleton myself. Not in an official capacity of course. Diana was often called Lady Di by everyone on the street. In fact I remember that changing post divorce and everyone just called her Diana...given the change in title. I can't see how it matters really. Jl

Nope.

To be pedantic her maiden name was Catherine Middleton. She is now married to The Duke of Cambridge, making her The Duchess. Legally Catherine/Kate Middleton doesn’t exist in reference to HRH, evidence is her children’s birth certificates and other legal documents. Her passport won’t say Catherine Middleton. They are not “referred” as, they are.

Of course I meant her birth name. I do not see any problem referring to her like that. That is all I meant. Like I said. In the 80's and early 90's Diana was always Lady Di. Which was her family name.

I still call the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle too. In fact a lot women in public are referred to by their maiden names (if that is how they first came to prominence). People used Grace Kelly and Princess Grace interchangeably, depending how they most knew her.

Officially of course they should rightfully be referred to by their titles.

It is days like this when you worry about James and Louise not having cousins - second cousins around them at these family events. Where did everyone go ? Then again maybe they just decided not to go to Church :)

Their older cousins are grown people who have other families to spend the holidays with too. They do what most folks do — bounce around from house to house during the holidays.

Outside of the Cambridge's there were no other children at church on Christmas Day because the others didn't go to Sandringham.

I believe Zara and Mike left on Boxing Day to come to Australia for the Magic Millions Race Meeting. Whether they have brought the children with them I have no idea ... but they haven't always done so in the past. As Mia has now started school and the actual race meeting would be after school resumes in the UK I wouldn't be surprised if the girls are with Mark, Peter and Autumn. I read somewhere that the Tindalls and Philip's were spending Christmas Day with Mark and not with Anne.

I would expect the Cambridge's to still be at Anmer Hall, on the Sandringham Estate, unless they have flown to Mustique to be with Catherine's family who are out there already.

The Yorks normally leave on Christmas Day or Boxing Day to go to Sarah. The surprise for me, at yesterday's church service was that Charles was still there as he normally heads to Scotland as soon as possible after Christmas (if not on Christmas Day itself) to spend New Year and January up there. Camilla, of course has gone to spend some of the holidays with her own children and grandchildren before joining Charles in Scotland.

A lot is made of the royals spending Christmas at Sandringham when the reality is that most of them are there for about 48 hours - from late Christmas Eve until sometime on Boxing Day.

The Queen and Philip are there throughout December, January and into early February. The Wesses's will leave when the kids have to go back to school. Anne returns to work in early January (as does Sophie - 7th for her).

It appears to be confirmed that Meghan & Harry spent Christmas holidays on Vancouver Island with Archie (along with friends and Meghan's Mom, Doria, dropping by). I wonder whether M&H brought their dogs with them too since they may have been away from Frogmore for a long time. It was nice to hear the Queen mention the happy highlight of Archie's birth during her Christmas speech:

British Royal Christmas 2008-2019

Seeing as the Sussex General News Thread is closed, this most appropriately goes here.

A new photo of Henry and Archie, in Canada was released on Instagram.

Wonderful photo of a happy baby and his dad! Looks like the background is in the Vancouver Island surroundings that they have enjoyed during their vacation. What a good choice! I've been in the area many times and it really sweeps away cares and worries and makes one appreciate that they are alive to see such unique beauty in Nature. (of course, I might be prejudiced, seeing British Columbia is my home!)

Such a beautiful photo! Both Archie and Harry look like they're in their elements. I see some resemblance towards Meghan (especially around the nose and eyes) in Archie. He seems to be a bonny baby.

Such a cute photo of daddy and son to ring in new year. Love their toques.

I grew up visiting Vancouver island as my grandparents lived in Victoria and other family up island nearer where they were. Dad actually still has a cousin in Saanich. It’s a wonderful place to unwind and get away from everything.

A great photo of both Archie and Harry. So nice to get a good closeup. I agree with you Zaira I can see a resemblance to Meghan. Here's hoping this little family have a good 2020 with less critcism.
