Prince Philip Imposes Strict Rule At Christmas Despite Skipping Celebrations This Year

Earlier in the day, Elizabeth and her family received cheers from a Christmas crowd when they arrived for a church service in the English countryside.

The duke and duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex head to church on Christmas Day.

But the Queen also put emphasis on the continuity of the monarchy, CTV News royal commentator Richard Berthelsen said. "It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied".

When Meghan Markle attended Christmas services with the Royal Family as Prince Harry's fiancée past year, the move was both highly unusual and filled with excitement.

While the Queen never wavers from her politically neutral stance - she does not mention Brexit directly - her message ended a year in which the divisions over the issue have widened.

With Kate's brother-in-law Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle announcing they are expecting their first child together in the spring of 2019, the Cambridges may be feeling broody again. Since then, the duchess has opted for this brand on multiple occasions, more recently including a navy blue Givenchy coat and dress outfit at Princess Eugenie of York's nuptials to her longtime love, Jack Brooksbank, in October 2018.

The royal couple are also mom and dad to Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3.

It reported that it was able to get in touch with the person in question via the recordings the man provided to the magazine. If you live in the United Kingdom and got someone a new Amazon Echo speaker, that might not have been the best idea.

Melita explained: "This year, officially a member of the royal family and with a royal baby on the way, Meghan is completely different to her appearance last year".

There is a rumor that the pasta is not forbidden on this day, and alongside this, on Christmas Day, the royal family enjoys a buffet of 16-20 items, including freshly carved meats and freshly roasted veggies like Brussels sprouts and Christmas pudding.

But the Queen typically frowns on extravagant gifts and numerous presents are novelty items.

According to excerpts released by Buckingham Palace, the 92-year-old monarch will also speak of family and friendship following a year in which her grandson Harry married Meghan at a dazzling ceremony.

The queen's address crowns a stormy month that saw Prime Minister Theresa May survive a leadership challenge staged by her party's most hardened opponents of Brussels.

They have been broadcast during every year of her reign save one.
