Nice that Zara has come and she hitched a ride with the Queen for the early service.
Since he just got back from the Antarctic, this temperature may feel warm to Harry.

Does anyone know the times of the two services the RF attended? It must be a jolly nuisance to have to go to church twice in the one morning, wearing different outfits.

I think it's interesting that none of the ladies seems to be wearing a hat to the earlier service.



ETA I see that the hat issue has already been addressed, but I remain surprised. I was born into an Anglican family and was dragged to many a Christmas Day service before I got old enough to put my foot down and refuse to go, and there was no way that my mother or any of her friends or relatives would have gone to the service without a hat. This requirement seems to have relaxed over the years but I am still very surprised to see the Queen and the other royal women going to church without hats, especially since this is the service at which it seems they take communion. I would have thought it's a question of the propriety of wearing a hat into a church not the presence or absence of the public that was important. Clearly I am wrong and the Royals don't think it's important to wear a hat to church unless there are going to be other people in there to see them. But they've already been seen. Another one of life's little mysteries. We live and learn.

Who is she?

The Queen, Kate Middleton and Prince William attend Royal church service at Sandringham | Mail Online

In the 4th picture from the bottom, and in another furthur up, there is a woman or girl I can't identify. The caption reads: Princesses Beatrice (far left) and Eugenie (second right) walk to church with other members of the Royal Family


I think the guys may be Daniel and Sam Chatto, but I'm not sure of that. I think that Lady Sarah can be seen dimly in the background in front of the church- the picture with Zara front and center.

Yes, this picture does make her look younger than she is and that skirt helps.

What - no screaming from the bushes that a 40+ woman should never wear a short skirt - need to lie down to recover.

9 am service is in a private part of estate, so ladies are in less formal attire.
11 am service is in the public part, where wellwishers can greet them, take pics etc, so they are in formal outfits including hats and jewellery.

Prince Harry Once Gave The Queen A Racy Shower Cap For Christmas, Apparently

Thought this was pretty interesting and gives a bit of insight into the Windsor's gift giving.

Thank you, annaelfka.

Only two hours apart? I suppose when you have servants doing all the cooking and laying out your outfits you can spend all Christmas day going to church and eating and changing into different outfits between each activity.

I find the hat business interesting because I have always thought there was some element of propriety involved, i.e. Anglican women were supposed to cover their heads in church like Catholics do (or at least did), but if the Queen herself doesn't see the need to wear a hat then the hat-wearing for Anglicans seems to only be about dressing up. Where's Bertie? She'll know.

No idea if this is the right place but the Monarchy website has put up highlights of 2013.

I've already found a pic of the Glos. which I've posted on their thread - never seen it before.

Here is the direct link

this is the link to the entire website

I'm baffled to see that the Royal ladies have attended church with heads uncovered - I had always assumed their hat-wearing was done for propriety's sake, not as a fashion-statement. (former Anglican, now RC here)

Why isn't James a part of the royal parade? I know he's young, but he's getting to an age where he should be a part of such gatherings, even if only for a short time. What's the youngest age a royal kid has done the walk to Christmas church services? Or is it decided more by the child's attention span and ability to behave? Some kids manage to grasp this faster than others.
