"Sneak Peek": Christmas at Sandringham

Tuesday, December 25, 2018

The royals have walked to church. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined senior members of the British royal family today for the Christmas morning service. The two couples walked together to St. Mary Magdalene, and in contrast to last year, we got lots of fabulous photos. 


I will do a full post a little later in the morning. In the meantime, Kate was in a Catherine Walker coat and Jane Taylor "Halo band," which she paired with her Asprey leaf earrings and that beautiful oak leaf brooch of unknown origin. Meghan is wearing a coat from Victoria Beckham's line!

  1. Merry Christmas everyone!
    I’m not really loving either outfit from the duchesses, but it doesn’t matter because it’s Christmas and all that matters is everyone is happy and healthy.

  2. Kate looks happy and beautiful. I love that color on her, the cut of the coat is fantastic for her body shape, and the hat is really cute (love how it is placed and that some her hair shows through in the back - nice look for her). Happy Christmas to the Cambridges, to our blog hostess Jane, and to all readers of this blog! :-)

  3. Merry Christmas Everyone!!! Thank you Jane for interrupting your holiday to post for us! I think everyone looks smashing today. The duchesses complement each other and they stayed true to their style. What could be better than that? I love that William is rocking the scarf today. You can definitely tell that Meghan is way more comfortable this year than last! I love Kate's coat, but I don't like the hatband style she's been sporting lately. It is more interesting from the back, and I do like that her hair was down today. I hope the Royal Family is enjoying being together today, and I hope everyone out there in internet land is enjoying their families too..... Sending peace and love vibes out into the world!!! Thank you, HM for doing the same in your Christmas message.

    1. Lovely picture of both Duchesses. Ditto on the Duchess of Sussex feeling more comfortable, it's pretty palpable (and with good reason, of course–she's married and expecting and no longer the "fiancĂ©e". ) I like the outfits, too. I think in general HRH Cambridge's focus on fashion has become so much more practical (and who can blame her?) given her duties toward three children and family in general. I suspect we'll see the same from HRH Sussex (my only wish for her would be to wear more colors!). (I'd also give HRH Sussex a scarf here, brrr, it's cold!). Sylvia.

  4. Catherine looks beautiful in this color tones, I'm not much of a fan of this headband but okay, I really liked her look, about the photo, it's clear to me, if there's any difference between the duchesses, which I clearly do not believe, the Christma's spirit to pacifyed the things, I like to see them like this, getting on well, Maybe this will put an end to all this tension.

    1. I have never believed the real tension was between the women. It's between the men & their wives get caught in the middle of the drama of the family they married into.

  5. I love The Duchess of Cambridge's outfit. This classic looks suits her so very well. I even like her headband. At first I thought it was a hat. I think I like it better than the one that she wore with the green coat recently because it seems to be a bit deeper and sits back on her head more so that it almost looks like a hat. I love that The Duchess of Sussex carried her gloves, despite the cold day. I suspect that she may have done so so that onlookers could see her engagement ring. I remember looking forward to seeing The Duchess of Cambridge's engagement ring when she visited Christchurch, but unfortunately I ended up being on her right as she walked by, so I missed out :-(

  6. I haven’t loved the other headband-style hats Kate has recently worn, but I’m really liking this “hat”- maybe because it looks so nice with her hair down? In any event, I really like it. I love the pretty color of her coat, but I’ve never really been a fan of the Catherine Walker outfits. I believe Kate also has this exact same coat in green?? I don’t understand having multiple coats/dresses remade in different colors. I like Meghan’s outfit better than the one she wore last year and she looks much more comfortable than she did last year.

  7. It must be daunting for The Duchess of Sussex knowing that her curtsey will be scrutinised. I notice that The Duchess of Cambridge has perfected her curtsey through years of practice, whereas The Duchess of Sussex is still getting the hang of it. She did a pretty good job, but I suspect that she still feels a little bit off balance when she does it. I suspect that the high heeled stiletto boots and her pregnancy put her a little off balance as well.

    Merry Christmas, Jane, and everyone on this blog!

  8. Amendment to my earlier comment: The Duchess of Sussex isn't wearing stilettos, but they are still quite high heels. She definitely looks much more relaxed than she did last year. Here's a link to the video as well:

  9. I love everything about Kate's look here. The coat color and style look great, I love the berry accessories, I love the brooch, I love the half up half down hairstyle. She looks great.

    Merry Christmas, Jane!

  10. Merry Christmas! I saw in a few pictures that the Phillips girls were on the walk today, do we think G + C could be there soon as well?
