Beatrice's trip to NY was a very quick one: London on Saturday, London again on Wednesday. Eugenie's not in London though, is she?

And no Zara and Mike, and Sophie with the kids?

Sophie and her children were there, they arrived in their land rover. Sophie was seen leaving in their Jag though, minus the children. Rex Features has photos of them arriving.

Viscount Linley and Margarita Armstrong-Jones arriving in that tiny car is the best thing I have seen yet

I knew the children would be there with their parents. It's always a big and private family gathering. Good to know the family has got a chance to meet George and Maude.

Nice picture, although I wish Charles & Camilla would pose for a official picture on their Christmas Cards. I think it would've been nice to even include the Cambridge's and Prince Harry. Their family has grown, I would want to capture that, IMO.

From what I've seen over the years, they usually pick out a photo of just the two of them in kind of a happy intimate moment together. I think this is much nicer than a posed, formal photo. We have to remember too that these are the cards that they send to personal family and friends so I think something more "official" would be out of place.

As far as the Cambridges and Harry go, they're old enough and basically on their own that they'd be sending out their own holiday greetings.

Nice to see all of them, especially the Duchess of Kent (where's the mister?) and all those "Lady"s whom we dont see regularly..
One little family I really missed was The Earl of Ulster (the only consistently-classy dude in the entire bunch) and the little Lord cute Culloden..
Anyways, George V and Mary must be glad for Lillibet keeping their clan together though sometimes I wish the Lascalles were also as close to mainstream..

Say what you will about Camilla, but Charles is a much more comfortable, relaxed and happy individual since they married.

Oh I agree totally. He is a lot more comfortable in his own skin and isn't afraid to loosen up and just enjoy where he is. I do really think that Camilla does bring out the best in him.

The royal family tend to only include couples with children and once those children are independent they are no longer included on the cards etc. This was the same with The Queen. She stopped having her children once they were out on their own with their own families and this is the case now for Charles - his sons are independent and William has a family of his own now.

If you include the Cambridges and Harry, then in fairness you must include Camilla's children, their spouses and her grandchildren - far easier to just do the couple.

William and Harry haven't been on Charles's Christmas card for a while now. It been Camilla and him ever since they got married. They took family photos shot at George's christening which are probably proudly displayed at Clarence House.

It would be nice to see some of the Lascelles family too.. Princess Mary's sons were first cousins to the Queen... since this is for extended family.

I'm confused. Caption on the picture of the Queen said she was arriving as well. Doesn't she live there? Or perhaps she was returning from a morning engagement?

I think a lot of people have reached the opinion that Charles and Diana should have never gotten together. Of course, I'm glad they did simply because we have William and Harry as a result.

I don't think that marriage was a mistake either and there were happy moments, smiles and joy then too.

I think it's just great to see the whole family together and happy. They spend a great of time apart and traveling all over the place during the year, it's times like this that the royals get a chance to catch up with the family and chat. They really look forward to doing that.
