The Queen and other members of the Royal Family attended the morning service on Christmas Day at the  country church visited by The Queen’s Great-Great Grandmother Queen Victoria, which dates back to the 16th century.

The biggest missing part of today’s church service was Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. Palace announced earlier that Duke will not attend the Christmas Service at Church however there is no cause for concern.

Since 1988, The Queen and her immediate family spend the Christmas period at Sandringham House on the Sandringham Estate. Duke and Duchess of Cambridge received their country residence Anmer Hall at Sandringham Estate after their wedding from Queen Elizabeth II, so the couple stays at Anmer Hall with their three kids during the Christmas week.

For the festive day, Duchess of Cambridge chose a very festive look. She wore a burgundy wool long coat that I believe is from Catherine Walker.

The silhouette of the coat was similar to her green Catherine Walker Coat that she wore at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 2017 with Button Detailing at the front and Velvet collars, cuffs and pocket lapels.
