I think Wednesday as Anne & her family will probably be attending the funeral of Mark Phillip's sister on Friday.

I wish we could see more clips of the lunch. We saw some clips of it in the Queen's 2004 message (the year we saw Louise getting a gift from Granny and Grandad) but can't recall ever seeing it again.
Are most UK schools stopping for winter break at the end of the week? Also many of the younger members of the extended BRF who attend the event do have jobs so I can see BP waiting until the end of the week to have the gathering.

I don't think Camilla's children will ever be invited. There is no tradition of inviting relatives of people who marry into the royal family to royal family events other than that person's funeral or his/her wedding itself.

Yes the state schools generally finish at the end of this week, although some private schools finished last week, but St George's School in Windsor Castle, where Louise and James attend doesn't finish until this week. I would imagine most of the other children who are coming attend private schools so they will have all finished. I know Margarita and Lady Helen's daughters used to go to Garden House in Kensington but they may have moved on due to their age.

I would think tomorrow... it is usually in the middle of the week. Thankfully, we get little clips of pictures taken by the press while they are in their cars. :-)

I like the fact the Queen does this every year. I hope Charles keeps up the tradition.

Thank you Molly. Hopefully we'll get some good photos of the Wessex family through their car windows for the luncheon!

You are welcome TLLK and we normally see the families arriving so fingers crossed. Margarita arrived in style last year with her dad in his tiny Fiat 500.

@RegalEyes: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived at the Queen's family Christmas Lunch. No sign of Prince George.

Rex Features has photos of the family arriving. Seen Peter, Autumn, Harry, Beatrice, the Taylors, The Kents and Tim (on foot) so far. Love the photo of the police officers looking at a photo list of the family members. Made me chuckle last year and they are doing again this year. There are so many people who attend that it's no wonder a role call is needed!

Edit: I forgot that Lord Nicholas and his wife had another baby - there is a small glimpse of he/she in Paola's arms in the taxi on the way to the lunch. Does anyone know whether they had a boy or a girl?

I have just googled it - another boy called Louis.

Royal Family Christmas Lunch at Buckingham Palace

It's also James' 7th birthday today so extra special for him. =]

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Queen's Buckingham Palace Christmas lunch without Prince George on Wednesday. The couple joined other members of the royal family including Prince Harry, Prince Charles and Princess Beatrice at the event, which is hosted each year by the monarch at her official residence.

Royals including Prince William, Kate and Harry descend on Buckingham Palace for Christmas lunch | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
They include some of the most famous faces in the country among their number but not every member of the Royal Family is so well known, as police outside Buckingham Palace discovered today.

Officers had to resort to a crib sheet to identify the likes of Princess Alexandra and Prince Michael of Kent but had no such difficulty with the more senior royals on the guest list, among them the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Prince William, who was fresh from an early morning visit to homeless charity Centrepoint in London's Soho, arrived with his glossy-haired wife, who looked lovely in her festive cherry-red dress.
Prince George was there. He arrived with his nanny but left with Catherine and William

The above link contains photos of royals attending the lunch. It is nice to see Lady Gabriella accompanying her parents.

@RegalEyes: Although they arrived without him, Prince George has left the Queen's Christmas Lunch with Mum & Dad & nanny Maria in a Range Rover

Thank you to all for the links and article. I'm surprised that Camilla is not there and hopefully she's not at home with a cold.

From a post by Cepe (thank you Cepe) of last year's event - cars passing by: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1626788
For comparison and whatever. Catherine wore red last year, too.

And just because I loathe their inaccuracies, the DM is incorrect. Adm. Tim Laurence walked in both last year and this. http://previews.rexfeatures.com/prev...f3a75bb36d204a

I think it might just be a book.

I have to say, any glimpse of that little man just brings a smile to my face, even when we can barely seem him! Maybe I'm getting broody.
