The new adorable additions were Prince George and Princess Charlotte who attended the Christmas Church Service with family for the first time. This new tradition is going to help George and Charlotte in the long run as a life of royal who spends most of the time in the public eye. The relaxed and casual setting of the public gathering will help them easing up in the public eye. Prince Louis will also join the elder siblings in the next few years.

Every year we saw the members of the royal family walking down to the St. Mary Magdalene Church for the service. Ahead of the service, today crowd gathered outside the church where they will meet and greet the members of the royal family. This year the Queen, Charles and Camilla were joined by the Cambridges, Wessex family, Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank, Princess Beatrice and her Fiancé, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Anne and her husband Sir Timoty Laurence.

During the walkabout, Charlotte received many gifts from well-wishers. A lovely Twitter user Karen Anvil got a special doll for the little Princess. This picture was captured by Karen Anvil during the walkabout.  From Daily Mail’s report,

Fans praised Charlotte’s ‘impeccable’ manners and ‘cheeky’ persona as they gifted her presents including a teddy and a pink flamingo toy.

Karen Anvil, who famously took a picture of the ‘Fab Four’ – the Cambridges and Sussexes two years ago – gifted Charlotte a doll this morning. Ms Anvil then captured a photo of the four-year-old. Ms Anvil told Sky News: ‘She came over with her mum, she liked the doll. Her manners are outstanding – but she’s cheeky, she wasn’t at all scared.’ She said Prince George’s manners were also ‘perfect’

It looks like the Custom version of Catherine Walker’s Larrisa coat dress that is described as, “Luxurious, mocha mohair and faux fur lends a distinctly wintry Russian aesthetic to this beautifully tailored coatdress. The pleated faux fur skirt nipped at the waist and sumptuous collar will keep winter at bay”. I will update the post when we get any further information.
