Dman, you really should make it now - to make sure that it will do for Christmas a sacrifice on your part - taste testing - as a favor to your guests
Once we see the luncheon pix I know the Royal Christmas season has officially started, hurray!

The Christmas Baking officially begins here on Saturday. Saturday is cookie and rice krispy treats being made. My God-daughter and oldest granddaughter are going to use Christmas cookie cutters and make iced cookies.

I'm making an old German cookie recipe I got from my Mother in Law years ago. A cooked raisin filled cookie (top/bottom with a soft raisin mixture in the center). They are amazing...I only make them during Christmas.

Sunday I start making some of the food for Monday. I'm doing an all appetizer menu for Christmas day instead of a sit down dinner.

Charlotte looks like she just woke up from a nap. It was so cute. She has grown quite a bit since the photo they released as Christmas card though.

I think that's a normal amount of time. I read somewhere that the lunch lasted 2 hours. They were there for longer than that, so seems fine, IMO.

Restaurants generally allow an Hour and a half for three courses, so with drinks beforehand 2 and a half[ish] hours is perfectly normal...

As we all know, the DF has great pics, so i went there. They had Lord Frederick down with his wife, and two children Maud and Freddie. So one out of three right! Sophie was not there; i expect she is still recovering from her back injury, there was a blonde woman in the car next to LF, but it wasn't Gabriella, probably the nanny, or bodyguard, or whatever; it certainly wasn't Sophie. And little Isabella was referred to as LF's SON Freddie! Honestly, all they have to do is google if they don't know; a child could do it! Maud is SO CUTE! And so was Charlotte. And Meghan, great to see her there.

Iím going to scour my bookshelves tonight to doublecheck but Iím sure that the luncheon offered is a buffet style lunch to allow members of the family to circulate and talk to each other rather than a formal sit down affair.

Oh I like that. Thanks Gaudete. I can imagine all the adults mingling and eating and drinking while the kids all run around being the little crumb snatchers they are. I can see George gravitating to Maud and taking her to Mummy and saying "This is my friend from school!"

Family occasions are great.

It was so lovely seeing these pics. Lady Margarita Armstrong Jones is growing up to be a very beautiful young lady

I read in a copy of Majesty magazine years ago that the guests are seated at round tables in the Bow room which is the room at the very back of BP which opens out onto the garden. I suppose it could still be a buffet though with guests taking their lunch to sit at whatever table they please. The Queen did a Christmas broadcast one year as well which showed some clips from that year's lunch. The sofas in the long gallery were covered in gifts and in one scene Philip and the Queen handed some to the daughters of Lord St. Andrews. I tried finding footage of that broadcast again but to no avail.

Do we know if that is Tane Lewis or Rufus Gilman with the Duke of Gloucester?

Yes - but she also looks here like a young Caroline Kennedy IMO.

Yes there's something about the upper part of her face that reminds me of Eugenie.
