It does look like a book, most likely from the Queen as it's during that lunch that she gives out gifts to her extended family.

As mentioned above, the Palace pre-Christmas lunch took place today and the usual Royalty watchers were outside - slightly more frustrated this year as more cars now have tinted windows thus not enabling us to clearly identify the rear seat passengers.

British Royal Christmas 2008-2014

The Daily Mail thinks it might be a curious George book. Anybody else kind of shocked by the hit or miss seatbelt use in these photos? Harry and Charles not wearing one especially after what happened with Diana.

Wonder who the young children with the Earl and Countess of St Andrew's were considering they have not got any grandchildren yet.

The pictures of Charles on his own were going into BP. He had an earlier engagement and so might have straight from that.

I haven't seen any pix of him leaving so she might have been there.

It looks like a book to me. I can't tell if he is arriving or leaving. If he's arriving, it probably was something to help keep him occupied. If he was leaving, I am glad the Queen give books to the children.

We all have different definitions but I'm not sure the Queen would consider Prince George extended family.

Perhaps if she is giving presents to the real extended family children (Kets/Glos etc) she would have something for George as he was the only child of the near family present.

Possible I think; also we dont know there was any present giving.

According Mark Stewart who is royal photographer, George and Nanny Maria weren't with W&K when the arrived but with them when the left so George with his parents are leaving photos

The view from the gate post said the Phillips girls where with their parents so George wasn't the only little one from the immediate family. He also could have just brought a book from KP and it wasn't a gift.

He could also have been given the book by someone other than The Queen e.g. maybe the Kent's or Gloucester's gave him a gift.

Is there anything known about the reason the Duchess of Cornwall didn't attend the luncheon at Buckingham Palace ?

I live in a non land rover part of the world. The Cambridges coming in had no black grating in the back of their land rover. Leaving, they did have that grating. I am assuming that grating is there for the hounds. Anyway - does that mean they came in in one LR and left in another? Or is that grate something that can pop up?

They probably switched range rovers. Nanny Maria, George and the police officer would have come to BP in the same type of car and the Cambridges probably just used that one to drive home because George's car seat being already in it.

We only know Charles arrived separately but there are no pictures of him leaving. She could have arrived earlier in the day, before people started taking photos or arrived unnoticed.

That is likely the case. She arrived earlier in the day so wasn't seen. There are no photos of Edward and Sophie arriving so they killer arrived earlier in the day as well like Camilla

Of course not. He's an heir to throne, not THE heir but an heir and third in line!

Those photos were of Edward and Sophie leaving. There were no photos of them arriving so they were likely there earlier as they have apartments in BP.

Having just seen the video of CP Victoria Christmas tree decorating with her husband and daughter, a few photos (some vague and grainy) of the British Royal Family arriving at Buckingham Palace (or indeed leaving, not that there is any difference) seems just a little less festive to me

The BRF are very private and don't seem to want to release annual christmas photos. It would be a nice touch to perhaps see the children decorating the tree. I am sure I read somewhere that the Queen waits for the small children to arrive to finish decorating the tree at Sandringham, but I could have made that up.
