I agree with you.
I've seen the DofE walk on his own before, and as for the leaning on each other it's probably due to the ice and high heels.

And also this picture shows that Prince Andrew walked with the DofE.

This one shows Andrew walking in front of Prince William and Princess Beatrice.

They all look so happy. I'm sure they enjoy being with each other as they probably don't get to see each other very much throughout the year.
I love the photo of Charles and Zara having a laugh, and this one too: http://picture.belga.be/belgapicture...v/17645479.jpg
There seems to be more snow and ice this year. Check out those huge piles of snow.

And this is the reason why I don't trust photos in the papers - crop this one and it would be easy to say that the Duke went on his own by simply cutting Andrew out of the picture.

I suspect we are unlikely to see Kate at Sandringham this year as it will be her last Christmas before the wedding.

It was reported that William wasn't going to attend Sandringham this year, so Kate on her own is very improbable.
William probably chose to stay in Wales so he could spend his christmas quietly with his fiancee.

I was under the impression that he had volunteered to serve on Christmas Day but I haven't seen any confirmation that he will be on duty that day yet.
If he is on duty he won't be with Kate anyway as he will be on base and she will be somewhere else - either waiting alone in the house in Wales, with her family or maybe at Sandringham with her future family.

I think that will make sense. Next year it will be expected that she at least attends the Christmas service before joining her family for the holidays. I think with William and Kate you will see more of a general holiday spilt. You know, how most people spend Thanksgiving with her family, and Christmas with his? Before it always appeared that that wives (Diana, Sophie and Sarah) didn't appear to see their families for the holiday. At least, that what it looked like via the pictures.

Traditionally the entire British royal family gathers the evening before Christmas at Sandringham, opens there presents that evening, attends church together the next morning, have lunch together and then watches the Queen's Christmas message. Camilla has been reported as leaving Sandringham to go to her own family after that.

I suspect that William and Kate will follow that formula and spend Christmas evening with the Middletons.

I am aware that Camilla spends part of the holiday with her family. I didn't mention her because of her age and background. What I mean about that is that she has/had grown children from her first marriage and grandchildren...so of course it would be expected that she would spend some time with them.

In reference to Diana, Sarah and Sophie they had their parents, siblings and nieces and nephews but its not the same. They certainly could have spent time with their families but 1) we never really knew it and 2) if so it was certainly not as publicized as Camilla's.

I'm happy to see Autumn. Are there any photos of Peter?
I agree udyusa, it's really nice to see Catherine and William. This is the first time they've been seen together since the engagement announcement.

Nice pics! It's good to see William and Kate together and her doing family stuff makes the engagement seem more real :)

And to clarify I mean real to us like not just something we read in papers, not real like they were faking it!

Well according to RoyalReporter they will be with the Queen and the rest of the senior royals this weekend. He also said the Queen greeted Kate when she arrived and welcomed her to the family(or something along those lines)
