Kate's First Christmas at Sandringham

Royal Sandringham Christmas 2011 

11am Christmas Service 
It was a full Christmas day for the Windsors.  

Walk to early morning private service

The Royals kicked the day off with a 9am private service at the church near Sandringham.  Kate was wearing those fabulous Aquatalia's paired with a grey coat.  As many of you have no doubt heard, Prince Philip spent Christmas in the hospital recovering after having a coronary stent surgery.  Looks like it was an idyllic country morning.

Her cousin-in-law, Princess Beatrice, chats with Kate.

Although we usually look for William's helping hand" every now and again we see it from Kate!  @Britishroyals shared this great photo on Twitter:


Later in the day, the family walked to the 11am service in more Christmas finery.  Kate wore a deep burgundy purple for the second service and a striking hat that was in the similar fashion tradition of Remembrance Day.  Kate is proving herself to be quite creative in the hat department.  I don't think you can say she plays it safe here, but a score nonetheless.

Huge crowds turned out to see the newest edition to the Royal Family.
The family greeted the unusually large crowd of well wishers before returning to the House for Christmas lunch.  These next two shots give a better look of the back of the hat as well as Kate's shoes and awesome clutch.



Around 4pm, the grandchildren went to the hospital to visit their grandfather.



Traditionally, the Royal Family gathers to watch the Queen's pre-recorded Christmas Address to the Nation. If you missed it, view it here:


I am really hoping we will have some sort of shot of Kate's Boxing Day outfit for the shoot, but we will see...
Wishing you all a very merry and blessed Christmas.
