The Christmas Day festivities began with members of the Royal Family joining Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at St Mary Magdalene’s Church, Sandringham, for the traditional Christmas Day Service.
His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh wasn’t in attendance.
The Duchess of Cornwall was also unable to attend due to a heavy cold.
The Royal Family traditionally spends Christmas and New Year at Sandringham House. The Queen’s country estate in Norfolk.
This year will be the first time that Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, attends as an official member of the British royal family and with Baby Sussex on board.
Kate donned a red coat by one of her favourite British designers, Catherine Walker. The coat features a velvet collar and sleeves.
For jewellery, The Duchess wore her Asprey Oak Leaf Small Hoop Earrings.
Sticking with the oak leaf theme, she also wore her diamond oak leaf brooch, with an unknown origin. The oak leaf is significant to Kate as it features on the Middleton coat of arms.
Meghan, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry in the Spring of 2019 wore a navy coat by Victoria Beckham.
Inside the calf leather interior of the handbag is a mirror and bullet lipstick-sized pocket, making it the ideal accessory for on-the-go touch-ups.
In attendance were Prince Charles the Duke of Wales, William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and, Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Also in attendance were:
- Peter Phillips with his daughters Isla (left) and Savannah
- Princess Eugenie and new husband Jack Brooksbank
- Zara Tindall and Mike Tindall
- Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and Sophie, Countess of Wessex with James Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor
Following the hour-long service, the Royals will then head to Sandringham for Christmas lunch with the Queen before sitting down to watch the Queen’s Speech, which you can view below.
