We'll have to agree to disagree about Beatrice's appearance in that photo. In my opinion she looks quite nice, but absolutely nowhere near "stunningly elegant".

For me Lady Violet, eh... I mean, Camilla, stole the show. What an elegant black-and-grey appearance. The perfect hat, the gloves, the umbrella, the eye-popping pearls and the diamond broche... Ten out of ten!

I think they all looked great dressed up in their best Christmas finery but, IMO, the person that really stole the show has to be HM, The Queen. That red outfit with the black fur trim were the perfect accessories to her beaming smile.

To me though, they could have been all wearing potato sacks as I think the most heartwarming part of the whole morning is to see generations of a family all gathered together to attend Christmas morning services together. You don't see that too much anymore.

Thank you.
I think the morning service is a Communion service and the later service a 'usual' service of prayer and carols. As far as I can remember before Philip was taken to hospital in 2013 we never really saw pictures of the early morning church service but now it seems to be the 'norm' that we get pictures from both.

The royal ladies all looked very elegant on Christmas morning on their way to the church service.

I Agree..HM was perfect and the other royal ladies rotated in her orbit. A collective stylish turnout, but HM was stunning.

The pictures do take you back to a time when the whole family went to church. Sadly, it's become a rare thing to see.

I wonder what made her decide to wear mink and chinchilla. She hasn't worn fur in years. It looked stunning.

She wore the fur coat to the same early service a couple of years ago - this is 2013

Queen wears fur to Sandringham sparking fury from animal rights groups - Mirror Online

Also fur trim

She also wore this fur coat in 2014 for the same event.

I think this is her 'normal' early morning Christmas Service coat.
She has probably been wearing this fur coat to this Christmas Service since the coat was purchased but she was never/rarely photographed in it.

He was in the front. Normally he is in the back.

This year they arrived by the 'ages' of the Queen's children with their own children.

Prince Philip accompanied by his daughter Princess Anne
Prince Charles and Camilla
Tim (Filing in Princess Anne's spot.)
William Harry Catherine*
Andrew Beatrice & Eugenie
Edward Sophie Louise & James

IMO, W, H & C were walking too slow and Tim over took them.

Don't know why anyone would get upset over The Queen wearing fur. She's been wearing the same furs for years. When the State Opening of Parliament took place in November, she wore white fur capes. Women and men wear fur, and it remains the most elegant attire one can wear. The Queen was the only one who beautifully stood out at Christmas service.
