Her Majesty the Queen attended church with the Duke of Edinburgh this morning as the Royal Family began their Christmas holidays in Sandringham.

I adore the picture of Charles and Camilla. There is so much warmth in it!

The picture of the family of William is lovely as well.

There is conflicting reports on what the Cambridges are doing. The mail is saying basically the same as last year. Christmas Eve with Royals, Church and then back to Anmer . Camilla Tominey of the Express says they are staying at Sandringham and doing everything with the Queen.

Don't know which is correct. If they are alternating, it's the royals turn. I thought last year was the perfect solution. With Christmas Eve being the big Royal gift day, you go to the big house on 24 and then church with every one on the 25 and then spend time with Kate's family afterwards.

They always say Sandringham is crowded at Christmas. Why would the Cambridges spend the night there when they have a house minutes away? That would free up some rooms for others. Even if they spend all the time with royals they could just drive over and back.

There are even confliciting reports on the photo the Cambirdges have released (Charlotte is sais to have been photoshopped), so I don't mind them, as they alway have nothing important to say...

So basically, the press has no idea at all what the Cambridges are doing and are making up conflicting stories.

I wonder how may bedrooms there are at Sandringham House as the media always make it sound very over crowded at Christmas!

...And we will never really know what they do especially behind closed doors on large country estates so it will always be speculation until/unless the RF comment themselves.

I still think Christmas Eve with one side of the family, as well as Church with that side of the family, and then Christmas Day lunch with the in laws makes a lot of sense- especially when the kids are too young to be able to behave in formal circumstances for long periods of time.

I hope that's the route they go because it sounds more fun for the kids, but whatever they want to do, they should be able to do.

I agree. The focus should be on the kids. They are Mike and Carole's only grandkids too and they shouldn't have to miss watching them enjoy Christmas especially when they are young and still believe in Santa.

Some of the family went ice skating at Whitmoor Forest near Ascot. I think it's lovely that the Wessex children are so close to their Phillips and Tindall cousins. :)

A right royal skate! Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall take daughter Mia Grace to Lapland UK - and join Sophie Wessex for a festive spin on the ice

Wow, good pics! I wonder why the Daily Mail has pixeled some of the kids's face for once!

Looks like a fun family pre-Christmas Day out!

I have something in common with Sophie...

...our skating style. Grit teeth and frown in concentration; stare grimly at ice and pray not to fall. Good times...

It looks like it will not be a white Christmas at Sandringham this year.
I live in a climate where we never have snow, so I really enjoy seeing photos of people celebrating Christmas w/ snow about such as Sandringham 2009

The DM's behavior is ridiculous.

Last week they had no problem showing the faces of children including Mia.
This week they are pixeled out.

They did the same thing, last year when the Tindalls were in Australia. They pixeled the photos of Mia when they ran a story about the Tindall vacation. A few days later they ran a story about Zara being a hands on mother and the photo of Mia in Australia were not pixeled.

We will have to wait until they run a story about Zara then we will see these pictures.
