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.

Did they? All articles I’ve just looked at said they came from Sandringham House to church.

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!

I think they will have stayed with the Queen because otherwise it would look like they are not welcome in her house. Yes it is busy and full but no more so than in other years before the Cambridge's had Anmer. So far all indicators have been they stayed at the main house not Anmer.

I assume the family all meet in the morning before heading to church - certainly even the Cambridge's arrive on foot and can't have walked from Anmer! I guess they all go to lunch at the Big House after church anyway so I don't think the bowing or curtseying tells us anything about who is staying where.

Because last year (which is part of what we are talking about) it was announced they stayed with The Cambridges.

No wonder I am confused, I am in Christmas 2018 not 2017.........why are we going on about last year when it is done and over with? I was talking about the present not the past which is moot...gone and not to return I sure hope. So nobody knows for darn sure who is staying where, heck, tell HM to give us a guest list so we don't guess anymore who is going where or doing what...that is the least she could do, right..........

Well in that case we'd then have to see a list of who stays in what room so the media can know for sure who gets relegated to the servants quarters

Did that and guess I will stay in this year for it makes more sense to me, love living in the present as that is all we have is now....all I know for sure is that no one knows for sure who is staying where as HM has yet to tell us......

Heck Tommy100, we could then tell the media so they could get their act together and inform the public of the *real facts* instead of their assumptions and lies.

I still don't see why the RF wants to crowd everyone in at Sandringham, when there's lots more room at Windsor.

I think its because Sandringham at Christmastime is something that the Queen holds dear to her heart. She spent Christmas there with her parents and family and to her, it seems like "home for the holidays".

One tidbit that reinforces this opinion for me is that the Queen stays at Sandringham until February 6th, the anniversary of her father's death.

I didn't know that. It's quite an interesting tidbit. Did you find it out in the book you mentioned you are reading?
