I don't quite get this comment. David aside (very different situation), "Poor Margaret" was never threatened with being exiled or cut off from the family. She would simply have attended as the Queen's sister, Mrs Townsend, not as Princess Margaret. It was her choice not to marry him.

But the idea that only the purest of family members should be allowed into the hallowed halls of Sandringham at Christmas is a bit much. Plenty of divorcees have visited Sandringham for the Christmas season. As well as a few other colourful royals. The idea that there would be some kind of judgement made on personal decency before an invitation is issued to eat a bit of turkey is very strange IMO.

George looks cute sitting there...looks like a soft blue coat he is wearing. Can't see anything of Charlotte!

Lovely to see Princess Alexandra arriving looking very happy. It seems she has recovered from the illness that caused her to cancel engagements recently.

Oh to be a fly on the wall! Meghan must be feeling very nervous about it all.

I found this letter on line which refers to the first Christmas Princess Michael spent with the Royal Family. It's for sale from an auction house but reads:-

Quote:
"Dear Henriette, (may I call you this?)

I am so sorry not to have written sooner thanking you for all your kindness in asking me to lunch and giving me such good and useful advice. I really do appreciate your friendship very much especially when you have so many other demands on your time and concentration.

Christmas was really fun. Everyone, especially The Queen, was very nice to me and welcoming and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Being surrounded by so many treasures my eyes were on stalks most of the time!

Sadly I did not find my way to the nursery as you suggested as we really were kept too busy shooting etc & when I had time it was too late for the nursery hours. Sadly I was not placed next to Prince Charles or Mark for any meal so the ice was never really broken but I enjoyed all the rest. Mealtime was communication time!

Won't you let me take you to lunch soon? When are you next in London?

I hope your Christmas was a happy family time and all my best wishes for the New Year.

Marie-Christine"
Princess Michael of Kent Signed Letter 1979 & Christmas with Queen Elizabeth II

Good to see the Duchess of Kent at the lunch too. I hope they’re having a good time.

Harry and Meghan already left the lunch. A little surprising.

First reports of arrival was 3 hours ago and they arrived later than PoW and DoC and the Cambridges. Reports of leaving was about 40 minutes or so ago. Perhaps they left a little early, but still decent amount of time.

Thanks for the links. I love seeing the photos of QEII's niece, nephew, cousins, their children and their families (ie:Lady Sarah Chatto) as we rarely see them except at Trooping the Color.
