Yes, I'm not really sure I can see the locals lining up to boo them as they go to church on Christmas Day and are many people going to travel to rural Gloucestershire to yell insults and picket them on the off chance they're going to an in person service at one of the churches?

I don't think Republic protest the walk in normal years do they?

That said, taking a look at St Mary's Tetbury website, they're still doing Zoom services and haven't yet finalised anything for Christmas publicly. It's likely places will be extremely limited for in person worship if it goes ahead and you have to book in advance. So I don't know if we'll see them walk to anywhere on Christmas Day, although Charles might participate in the online versions of Canterbury's services again.

I can't decide which one looks more idyllic St Mary The Virgin or St Saviour's Church!

I doubt anyone's sad enough to travel to Highgrove on Christmas Day to boo Charles and Camilla because of their portrayal in a TV programme. I doubt crowds'd gather to cheer them either - it's not like Sandringham where the entire Royal Family's going to be there, rather than two people, and where it's become a tradition for people to go to watch. I'm not sure Charles is that fussed anyway - the Queen is genuinely into churchgoing, but I suspect that a lot of the others go because it's expected rather than because it's that much of a big thing for them.

I agree he may not be fussed about being a regular church goer like his mother but he does seem to know what he's talking about whenever he talks about his faith and it is clearly meaningful to him.

He also wrote a powerful obituary for Lord Sacks recently and credited him with being a personal religious instructor.

That said I do think it's unlikely we'll see either of them on their way to Church on Christmas morning for a number of reasons and even less that we'll see protestors or well wishers gathered. As I said upthread I don't rule out him appearing in an online service (pre recorded) for a reading or something.

Charles is a churchgoer....

At 0.58 The Queen is referred to as Her Royal Highness.!?!

You would have thought this channel would at least have got that right.

Aww, I'm happy about this - it really sounds wonderful, and a lot of fun!

The royal family is keeping in touch the way most of us are this holiday season! With new restrictions in the United Kingdom and Prince Harry and Meghan Markleliving in their Montecito, California, home, ET has learned that the royals will be conducting Zoom calls to check in with one another.

"The family is planning Zoom calls and games online because they can’t all spend Christmas at Sandringham together like they normally do," a source tells ET. It was previously announced that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will be breaking from tradition and spending the holidays at Windsor Castle.

"Everyone is on better terms and have been for quite some time," the source says of the family. "The relationship has improved and COVID has brought everyone closer together."

Both Prince Charles and Prince William contracted the coronavirus this year, and the source shares that the health struggles helped reconnect Prince Harry with his family after he and Meghan stepped down as senior royals in March.

"Harry was very concerned for his brother and father when they both contracted the disease," the source explains. "While there have been disagreements, like there are in every family, the brotherly bond remains intact despite tabloid reports."

That is sooo interesting! I wonder who would leak such an information to an American media outlet! To sound like a big, happy family!

That said, I really do hope that at least some of the families will be able to see each other (outside, socially distancing, of course) during the Christmas period.

Usually Katie Nicholls gets scoop for ET, but I suppose that’s not the case here...

Charles is almost certain to visit HM and Philip, even briefly, per reports from a couple of weeks ago. I imagine others might follow - they just won’t all be able to see each other...

The headline is misleading as the article mentions everyone in the family exchanging gifts, but I suppose that’s the bigger deal since William and Harry were feuding. Based on what I’ve recently posted, I certainly believe this is true...it seems in general that the BRF are in much better terms, and that’s a wonderful way to begin a new year.

Berkshire's just been put under the new Tier 4 restrictions, so no-one will be visiting Windsor over Christmas :-( - household visiting is completely banned in those areas. I would think that the Queen, like everyone else affected, is thoroughly fed up!

Just saw that on the news and it will be a very different Royal Christmas.

I suspect the royals will be having a Zoom Christmas like most of us! The pandemic doesn't discriminate.
