I agree with many posters on here in regards to Her Majesty traveling to Sandringham via train. It's only an hour and a half ride, so there's no reason to bring out the Royal Train. I think a trip that long in the car would be a bit much for a person of her age. There's no chance to get up and stretch one's legs, while on the train that is possible. She's showing solidarity and compassion to her subjects in time of economic hardship worldwide, that gives (at least me) yet another reason to respect and admire her.

No shows at the Pre-Christmas Lunch

This explains why Beatrice and Eugenie were not at the Christmas lunch yesterday.

I am pleased that the girls were able to attend their friend's wedding. Hopefully she will only have one in her lifetime while the girls will still have the main Christmas celebrations with their grandmother (but of course they are not allowed to see their mother on Christmas Day as she isn't allowed to even stay on the estate anymore - which she did the first few years after her separation and divorce).

It would be nice to see grandma Anne carrying Savannah to Christmas services.

Wonder if we will see images of her 1st birthday party.

I doubt it - we didn't get any pictures from her baptism except for them going into the church and/or coming out.

As Savannah is so far from the throne I think we should expect to see very little of her - even less then we have so far seen of Louise and James.

Louise hasn't yet made the walk to church - maybe this year - so I really do think that we won't see Savannah doing that walk, with or without her grandmother Anne.

We will see what she wears to church and that is all. We will not see anything inside Sandringham and as she is apparently not attending the boxing day shoot, and outfit for that won't be necessary.

I was under the impression that she wasn't going to be shooting. The Queen. Anne and Sophie attend the shoot but don't shoot - they watch, help with picking up the birds etc. The Queen controls some of the retriever dogs.

Would she really stay in the house while everyone else was out at the shoot?

Camilla always leaves on Boxing Day to go to her own family. The York girls do their own thing - although I have read that they frequently leave as well to go and see their mother now that she isn't invited to stay on the estate - when she was they would go and stay with her. Zara will be leaving on Boxing Day, if not late on Christmas Day, as Mike has a game to play on Boxing Day and has to get to a training session late on Christmas Day. Autumn is about 6 months pregnant and also has a young baby - so Kate could spend the day with her I suppose.

I have no idea what she's going to do, she may want to 'fit in' with them or stay in the warm for a few hours.

I imagine, to get in the Queen's good books, she'll attend the boxing day shoot and tag along with Sophie or Anne (most likely Sophie) and help pick up the birds etc. for their husbands.

I think Sophie would be a good choice. They get along pretty well and have spent some time with each other before and after the wedding.

I wonder what are the possibilities of the Middletons invited to stay at a guest cottage at Sandringham? I would imagine that both William and Kate will want to see her parents over the holidays also.

But how long are they actually staying. There are reports that they will be in Scotland for New Year - and Charles usually leaves on the 27th so it is possible that William and Kate will also leave then - a bit much to take over a house for only a couple of days - no time to decorate it or things like that.

The Queen will celebrate a momentous Royal Wedding year and look forward to her Diamond Jubilee in a Christmas message focusing on family.

As she prepares to mark 60 years on the throne, the 85-year-old monarch will address millions in Britain and the Commonwealth tomorrow, reflecting on the values and strength of family, friends and community.

In the light of today's events, the message's theme will hit home even more. Here's a little preview from 'The Telegraph'.

I'm so glad HM is today and the next days surrounded by her closest and dearest as her husband is severely ill. I hope he will follow doctor's advice and will allow himself time to relax and recover - difficult when the Dioamond Jubilee Year is coming but necessary, IMHO.

The picture frames on the table are lovely, and I could be mistaken but the one of the little curly blonde girl in a pink and white top (sitting in box!) looks like Lady Louise. The hair is what makes me think it's Louise.
