Christmas with the royals is on its way. We will get plenty of dissecting of body language of everyone and also nice new pictures to fawn over. 2018 was quite a year for the royal family and it seems 2019 is shaping up to be another.

Buckle up.

Arthur has very good eye. And Sussex's card does remind the Blitz images.

Yeah, sorry. I am not seeing that. I see fireworks on a pond.

I would expect it. The little ones always do very well.

The very traditional shorts suits have been for more formal occasions. We've always seen George in "normal" kid clothes for casual things like polo games and that's the dress code they used for this photo, so I don't think we can make any conclusions about how he'll be dressed for Trooping the Colour or whatnot. As for Louis' "tights," leggings have been a pretty popular way of dressing babies of both genders for a few years now, and I feel like we saw George in them as a baby, too.

I really like this photo. It's nice to see that childish personality of the kids coming through. I like it much better than last year's studio shot, but I also felt like Kate seemed pretty tired from the pregnancy last autumn (and I remember being super tired at the same point in my pregnancies), so I don't mind that she didn't feel like pulling together a newer photo and just used one from the session when they took George's birthday portrait/tour thank you photos.

I like all the Christmas card photos this year. I think each one suits the household that sent it. Meghan and Harry's feels so festive and warm to me, and it seems very natural for a newlywed couple to pull a photo from their wedding for the Christmas card. It looks like you're looking with them into an exciting future. The Cambridges' card photo is such a warm picture of a growing family that's having a fun, if hectic, time of it. And the Wales' portrait exudes the comfort and companionship of a couple who've been in love for years and years.

And yet another POV of the Christmas Card Controversy.

Arbiter worries that the non stop attacks will end up backfiring on the media and the very thing they don't want to occur just might.

Maybe it's an American thing? I have to say, in many discussions I have with my American friends the perspective on history is always the most interesting one - Europeans in general saw more pictures like that from WWII, so the connection is stronger in their (well, ours) minds.

Of course it is popular--it has the three young Cambridge kids in it. And they are cute.

I love this, honestly! Everytime something like this happens we get an answer for the constant question "who cares about monarchy in the UK"

I think Victoria is one of the few voices of reason among the Royal Reporters right now.

I kind of agree with her about the Christmas card photo--I think Harry and Meghan just loved the photo and wanted to share it, with no hidden meaning or message.

According to the front page of the Mirror, Harry won’t take part in the Christmas pheasant shoot because of Meghan.

Yeah, me too.

There are some weird over the top criticisms of the Sussexes' Christmas card photo and comparing the fireworks to the Blitz is one of them.

I see love and happiness exploding.

I’m having dejavu. They printed this exact story last year.

Not sure why people are surprised the kiddos were a hit. They always are. Just like the weddings were and I’m sure the upcoming new baby will be. Those are easy sells. Weddings and babies. We were spoiled this year.

This is not new. Harry begged off of hunting last Christmas for Meghan except in Germany.

The tabloids are running out of material so they are recycling. Yeah this mess is dying down.

Is there a peasant shoot on Christmas Day? I thought it was on Boxing Day?

The article clearly states that it's about the Boxing day shoot.

Several bickering posts and and posts adding nothing to the discussion have been deleted. This is supposed to be a thread discussing Christmas with the British Royal Family, not a platform to bash the media, nor a platform for point scoring or for perpetuating speculation, rumour and gossip.
Those wishing to carry on a private point-scoring feud may do so if they must by PM and not within the threads.
Let's please have some mutual respect for one another and not bicker over something as innocuous as a Christmas card.

There is usually a pHeasant shoot on Boxing Day , though I am sure at times Prince Philip would have been happy to shoot a few peasants as well!
