The British Royal Family Attend Christmas Day Church Service

On December 25, 2010, the British royal family attended Christmas Day Mass at St. Mary Magdalene Church near their massive home, Sandringham, in Norfolk this morning.

It was freaking cold, according to the weather reports, but despite the temperature several members of the British royal family walked to church.  However,  HM Queen Elizabeth II did not (smart woman.  I wouldn’t walk either.)

Any way, after the service the Queen, looking sweet in a fur hat, black boots and coat, smiled as she exited the church with her husband, Prince Phillip and family.

Also in attendance was Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, Prince Harry, The Wessexes, Prince Andrew and his daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie (looking like a complete hot messes… but what else is new.  They both are completely and utterly hopeless in every way possible.)

Absent this year, were Princess Anne and her family along with Prince William who was working in Wales (he was on duty for the RAF rescue team.)  Meanwhile, as dramatic as it sounds, Miss Catherine Middleton spent her last Christmas as a commoner with her family in Berkshire.  Aw, how touching. has a video clip from this morning of the British royal family; just copy and paste the link below to your browser.
