Yeah, sure.

I notice that Kate and Meghan are quite chatty leaving the Church.

I noticed that, too. All four of the 'kids' looked to be enjoying being together. Perhaps they sat up late last night, dishing over the other royals at the formal dinner! I'm sure it's very nice for Kate to have a contemporary in the family, and no doubt Meghan feels comfortable with Kate. Of course, I may just be projecting my feelings about my own sister-in-law.

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Kate and Meghan look like friendly sisters-in-law.

Meghan's hat looked lovely.

The Queen and members of the RF arrive for the annual Christmas morning Service at Sandringham.

I watched the body language and Meghan seems pretty relaxed and comfortable with the core group (haven't seen her interact with the others yet) and fairly sure and comfortable with her surroundings. There might of been a couple times she looked around trying to get her bearings it seemed and Harry was quick to say something a couple times.

Seems like it's all going very smoothly.

Meghan looked a bit uncomfortable at the beginning, especially around Camilla and Anne.

But she looked great at St Mary's church.

I wonder what is for dinner at Sandringham?

The "Fab Four" as they been called seem pretty tight. It was nice seeing the 3 of them guilding Meghan. I think she and Kate will be good friends. Also Kate has never seemed happier. She has to be glad the pressure is off her some and she has someone to bounce things off with. Harry was lonely but I think she was too. William was the one set up with a significant other and a confidant/friend to experience it with. Now they all have that.

I think you're right. Kate is probably glad to have someone to share the spotlight (and sartorial criticism) with.

You can kinda tell a couple times she's thinking about what she's doing (when they lined up on the steps) ..she hasn't got that routine down of course. That will come with time. She's still feeling her way as to where she's supposed to be when etc.

Coming own the steps she's talking to Kate/William and Harry is pointing and talking to her but she's not turned his way..then he leans and says something, she turns and you can see her saying yes. WE NEED LIP READERS!! LOL

I thought they all were? Even Charles joined in before he caught up with Camilla. I enjoyed the interaction between the Wales branch.

I do think there is more of a system when they walk out as opposed to when they walked in? Otherwise, it’s too much of a coincidence for them four to end up at the bottom of the stairs while everyone else other than HMQ, Prince Phillip, Charles and Camilla walking behind them. We saw how it was when they walked in.

It seemed that Hary was discussing the crowd and game plan for the brief walk about with her on the steps pointing to the left and right. But she seems to have the where to stand and when to curtsy thing down. She definitely knew it was coming and just waiting for the moment she should curtsy. She was keeping an eye out while paying attention to whoever was talking to them on the other side.

He says now at one point so I think he was reminding her about the curtesy and pointing to the direction of the walk about. That's my guess.

Serena Countess of Snowdon looks lovely. I think Serena and Autumn Phillips are my favorites as far as royal style goes ... after HM of course.

With all due respect i would hardly call it "taking turn".
The fact is there was a change this year with the usual "protocol" with the shared car with the Queen.
Who knows maybe Camilla was feeling unwell (but she did walk to the church in the morning), the Queen wanted a girly chichat or as pointed out Sophie wanted to walk with the kids ...
Anyway it was a nice sight to see the two most senior royal ladies together ...

I didn't call it "taking a turn". I pointed out that, contrary to your assertion, it has not "always" been the CoW.

Right, but I’m just pointing out that they’re taking turns. The Countess of Wessex rode with The Queen yesterday. Today, it was Camilla. It’s just companion riding.

I've never heard of the usage "Fab Four" before but I do think they seem tight. I'm happy that Harry finally has a companion and isn't just a third wheel or lone wolf of the Wales branch.
