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.

Today, the fans and followers of Royal Family got a big Christmas treat when Clarence House and Kensington Palace released the Christmas Pictures of this year. The pictures will also appear on this year’s Christmas Cards.

The picture of Cambridge family was telling a story of happy family. The whole family was clad in blue and green colour coordinated ensembles. William and Catherine are sitting on a tree branch while Charlotte and George are standing on the same branch. George, I must emphasis on ‘in Pants’, has one arm around his father, while William has one protective arm around his little Princess.

We cannot miss the mega watt smile on Catherine’s face who is holding her mini me almost 8 months old Louis. Picture was taken by Matt Porteous in autumn at the Duke and Duchess’ country residence Anmer Hall. The pic shows a happy family having fun time outdoors. William and Catherine love being outdoor, and in this pic it look likes their kids have inherited that  love from them. You can see grass stains on George and Charlotte’s shoes.

You all must remember Matt Porteous, who famously took the pictures of family at the christening of Prince Louis in July this year. We cannot forget this lovely shot he took that day.

Do you recognize the cardigan Princess Charlotte is wearing. It’s the same cardigan that we fist saw on Prince George in 2016 in Queen’s 90th birthday Portrait.

Charlotte wore it for the first time in the official portrait Duke and Duchess released this year in May to mark Charlotte’s 3rd birthday and Louis’ birth.

It was such a happy moment to see William and Catherine with their kids. Next week Queen Elizabeth II will be holding annual Christmas lunch that will be attended by the extended royal family. We will see Duke and Duchess arriving hopefully with kids. I will leave you with this old memory of Cambridge Family to ponder how far we have come.
