You'd think though the writers would at least have other previous photos to help identify the attendees. It's not like the lunch was a big surprise and caught them unawares.

None of my sources have ever suggested that any meal is a buffet and certainly not the Christmas Eve dinner.

I’ve found one reference to the Christmas Eve buffet dinner but I think that’s a mistake on the part of the author because in Brian Hoey’s book and in Darren McGrady’s book they both say that a buffet dinner is served at 8.30pm on Christmas Day and that the Christmas Eve dinner is the most formal meal offered over Christmas.

McGrady also makes reference to the Christmas Day buffet here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...Christmas.html

I'd imagine by end of day Friday at latest, possible today even.

HM really stand out when she wears royal purple. And... matched up with that Hermes scarf, its magnificent! Bright, cheery, festive and quite a lot of other adjectives that just won't come off my tongue right now.

I love colors! Hence why the queen’s outfits intrigues me, she does so much with so little, meaning she wears what could be a boring outfit - cause we never see beneath the coat- but manages to make it pop by choosing strong standout colors.
I would love to sit in her closet and just stare at her coats and hats.

I really like the Christmas lunch because it gives us a chance to see the more minor members of the BRF whom we wouldn't get regular updates of otherwise.

Charlotte looks a lot like Catherine in the photos of her to me. She's very cute. I love the photo of the Duke of Gloucester with his grandson and the little plush corgi!

I’m excited for Her Majesty’s speech this year. So much seems to have happened and the world feels a little mad. Her speech is always so reassuring and comforting.

So, other than the walk to church on Christmas Day, what other sightings can we expect in the next couple of weeks?

I’m too looking forward to the royal family walk to church for Christmas. So much to celebrate now and into the new year.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. The British royal family church walk and watching to The Queen’s Christmas Message has become part of my Christmas tradition. Especially since it’s shown here in America. C-Span will air the message.

Who will walk?

Will Philip walk to church this year? Is Kate up to it?

Kate's done it twice before while pregnant, she'll be fine!

I would imagine you will see Phillip as well.

Only other trips to church during December and January although the Princess Royal will be back at work on the 4th January but not at a public event - she regularly attends a conference - and we don't get coverage of her anyway.

Next time any of the reportable royals will do something - there will no doubt be a lot of reports when Harry does his 'guest editing' at the BBC Radio 4 on the 27th - but that has been pre-recorded so nothing live.

It seems the Earl of Wessex will be back to work on the 11th but again not newsworthy.

The Duke of Kent is the only other royal with listed future engagements for the next month but it must be noted that the FE is notoriously unreliable for telling anyone what is happening and the Wales/Cambridge/York branches of the family don't even bother putting their engagements up there so what any of them are doing in advance who knows.

We do know that Charles and Camilla will leave Sandringham as usual after the Queen's message - Camilla to go to her own children and grandchildren and Charles to go to Scotland. The Yorks also leave at that time to join Sarah - usually in Switzerland.

The big fuss about this 'family get-together' is fun - for an event that lasts at most about 20 hours.

Since there aren't many official engagements upcoming, I guess we'll need to rely on the paps to keep us in updated photos of H&M going out to dinner and so forth.
