I remember reading at the time of William's wedding that the Queen was far from happy that the reception was to be a buffet as she believes that meals should be had sitting down and not wandering around with food. I therefore doubt that it would be a buffet with people walking around - maybe the go and collect food and then sit at a set seat but as for walking and talking - I don't think so.

For a lot of them, until recently, that was the last Christmas they could spend with their own families.
I did not know that about Diana wanting to spend Christmas with her family before her father died. Could you tell me where you read that? I have been trying to find it.

That would be interesting considering that is the formal dinner with everyone in full evening wear and tiaras according to all the reports I have read on that issue.

None of my sources have ever suggested that any meal is a buffet and certainly not the Christmas Eve dinner.

Definitely a poor choice in jewelry on part of Princess Michael.

Glad to see the family out in large numbers. Expect its a quite warm casual event as far as royals go. I am sure even the kids had a ton of fun.

Laugh at the Fail's continued mistakes. Little Freddie Windsor, and his suddenly blonde mother

Hopefully the real Sophie Winkleman is recovering well from her injuries

Anyone know when the Queen is leaving for Sandringham now that the family luncheon is over with? I did read that Will and Kate and family are getting ready to head to Amner Hall.

Tis a very confusing season!

I don't like Princess Michael's brooch, and I wouldn't like it if the blue were pink either, but it has been enlightening reading about other people's perceptions, and I can appreciate where they're coming from; I've learned something, always good.

Yes I know its Isabella, that's why I mentioned both the child and mom. The awkward mistakes of Daily Fail get worse and worse

I'd say perhaps they drank too much eggnog but nothing new with the fail. Honestly if you are not one of the core members, and even those get confused at times, you might be called any name under the sun.

You'd think though the writers would at least have other previous photos to help identify the attendees. It's not like the lunch was a big surprise and caught them unawares.

Iíve found one reference to the Christmas Eve buffet dinner but I think thatís a mistake on the part of the author because in Brian Hoeyís book and in Darren McGradyís book they both say that a buffet dinner is served at 8.30pm on Christmas Day and that the Christmas Eve dinner is the most formal meal offered over Christmas.

McGrady also makes reference to the Christmas Day buffet here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...Christmas.html

I'd imagine by end of day Friday at latest, possible today even.

HM really stand out when she wears royal purple. And... matched up with that Hermes scarf, its magnificent! Bright, cheery, festive and quite a lot of other adjectives that just won't come off my tongue right now.
