Fur is now appropriately recognized as needlessly cruel to animals and many oppose wearing it.

I personally make an exception for antique furs, but oppose the manufacture of new ones.

People often forget that The Queen have lots of fur coats and capes, and has had them for decades. Sometimes her dressers often incorporate her old furs in new creations.

Although it does not answer your question, it shows the size of Sandringham House.

It would be interesting to know who lives where.
Who lives in the 'main house?
Who lives in the 'L' shape that is attached to main house?
Who lives in the reddish brown section?
Who lives in the 'smaller' house to the left?

The smaller house connects to the main house.

I'm wondering if the people at the DF will even notice there's been a mistake. I seriously doubt it as they're all conspiring on the latest footage to pull some kind of "scoop of dirt" out of nothing at all.

I do admit though that they do have some of the best photographs though. Now if only their journalistic talents could be brought up to the same level.

But at least the readers of DM know that it was princess Anne and not her dead aunt....

Complete speculation but I imagine the Queen and DofE have rooms in the 'main' part of the house along with the main reception rooms.
I suspect the reddish brown section contain staff offices and staff bedrooms and maybe a few extra guest bedrooms.
When you look at it like this you can see that the house is not really that big for 30 guests and all the staff. (Of course it is a big house for any 'normal' family).

I agree i have the same feeling that Sandringham seems "small" for so many guests.

They did. When I read the article it says Anne not Margaret, so it has been fixed.

The Royal Family attended a church service amid heightened police security checks for wellwishers at Sandringham.

Officers carrying bodyscanners even checked a little girl and a baby in a pram as all arrivals were subjected to extensive searches.

The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry were among attendees for the traditional Sunday service at St Mary Magdalene Church.

Experts who watched the scenes outside said the extent of police checks at the Queen's Norfolk home was "unprecedented" compared with previous years.

It didn’t look like the Middletons were at church today. I thought Camilla Tominey claimed that the Middletons were invited to Boxing day. Seems like Katie Nicholl and Rebecca English weren’t the only liars.

Nice to see Zara and Mike at Church, maybe they spent Christmas Day with Mike's family and now spend time with the RF.

There are some nice photos at the orderofsplendor blog, including one of Lady Sarah and her two sons.

Did Zara and Peter were there for Chrismas or not? I'm sorry to ask but with the Christmas festivities I didn't follow much. I guess that's pretty normal if both Peter and Zara's families have skipped this year Christmas with the queen, to spend it with the other side of the family. That's what folks do anyway...
