They courtesy when first meet the Queen - my assumption is that they hadn't seen her prior to the church. They would have set out walking before the Queen's car left. Other members of the royal party probably had met the Queen already.

I've seen pictures where W and H bow their heads - as did the Vicar. Catherine and Meghan curtseyed then.

They don't courtesy every time, just the first time they see the Queen. It's entirely possible that they (William, Kate, Harry, Meghan) are staying at Anmer Hall, so it was the first time they saw her, while the rest of people saw her earlier that morning.

Catherine looks lovely. The Queen and Camilla looks so festive in their outfits. Sophie is soooooo chic, love it. The York princesses look beautiful. Lady Sarah Chatto looks beautiful. Anne looks classy as always. Louise is growing up so fast. Autumn looks chic and hip.

Bless Prince Phillip at 96 looking so spry and chipper.

It doesn't look like they did much of a walkabout today...

I was watching a BBC segment online, and they used the one word that I couldn’t find before and nailed it perfectly about Meghan this morning. Composed.

I don’t think I’d do too well if I had to move my whole life to a different country with a different culture, dress in a different custom, have first Christmas with the in laws and them being royals. Actually, just the in-laws part alone would’ve caused nerves. However, she looked quite calm and happy. Everything was right on queue. Including knowing exactly when to curtsy without having to be reminded or queued. And it’s good to see a picture from the photocall included next to Charles and Camilla in the Queen’s speech.

Very lovely royal Christmas appearance by the royal family and I enjoyed the Queen’s message. The choir was great too!

I've been looking for photos of who swept up all the lovely bouquets. In past years Harry, Eugenie, Beatrice and Louise have all helped. I'm not finding that coverage yet, this year.

Everyone seems very happy and relaxed together. Nice to see everyone fit and healthy this year.
Not a fan of Kate's coat, quite an unusual choice IMO.
I wonder if Camilla going in the car is in part due to her advancing age and the fact that now both Sophie's children attend the church service it seems a bit more practical for her to walk with them?

Sophie rode in the car with the Queen yesterday.

I think I realized why they skipped the first service. The first service is rather much simpler and less formal. The ladies didn’t even wear hats. It’s only the second one that they come out in full gear. It’s Meghan’s first Christmas, I’m sure they wanted the photos to be more formal and official. I think the international media would be thoroughly confused as to why she didn’t wear a hat in some photos had they all gone to the first service.

As Camilla walked to the church this morning for the earlier service, your second proposition is interesting.
Or maybe the BRF wanted to send some kind of signal this year ...

Charles just beamed on seeing his sons happy. Love it!

The royal ladies like taking turns sharing the ride to and from church with The Queen. Especially when she’s not accompanied by Prince Philip or a lady-in-waiting.

Wyevale...this pictures are Fantastic! Please thank your friend for sharing them with us!

It was great seeing the BRF! Everyone looked happy!

The Queen looked fabulous today. Love the hat!

Not a fan of the Meghan's color choices...thought she was playing it safe but otherwise a great coat and boot choice. At first, I wasn't a fan of Catherine's coat but it grew on me (I think she borrowed that hat from Anne or Camilla). I am not sure what Eugenie was thinking when she picked that coat. And Autumn and her daughters looked lovely. And Lady Sarah's sons...my have they grown!

Any pictures of the Serena and Margarita?

That's not true. Always been the Countess of Wessex until now.

Or they just greet her just like you and me. As can be read in the FAQ on the very own website of the British monarchy: any form of greeting is okay, there is no any obligation, people who feel the urge to sink through their knees can do so. People who stand upright and greet the Queen with a little nod, or with "Good Morning, Ma'am": all perfectly okay by all members of the royal family.
