Prince Harry was the “good son” this year. He did the full royal Christmas at Sandringham, including a church stroll and spending time with his extended family. Harry is especially close to his cousin Zara Tindall, and I suspect he probably spent a lot of time trying to cheer her up. Plus, Harry actually gets along with his dad, and I’m sure Charles enjoyed having Harry there. Harry also participated in the annual pheasant hunt on the day after Christmas, which is organized by his grandfather. … read more

An annual tradition around the end of every year is the release of the royal family’s “numbers,” the number of work engagements they managed to do over the course of the year. Since 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s numbers have been rather sad, which have caused many royal apologists to claim that Will and Kate are having babies and they need to spend time as a young family, etc. Personally, covering Will and Kate as I do day after day, week after week, year after year, I find it … read more

The royal family made their annual pilgrimage to Sandringham for the Christmas holiday, as always. But this year did feel very different. For one thing, Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and their two children were not there – they decided to spend the holiday with Kate’s family. The holiday also felt different because the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Christmas plans changed at the last minute because they were both battling really bad colds. If their colds were anything like the … read more

– A heavy cold is keeping Queen Elizabeth II from attending the traditional Christmas morning church service near her Sandringham estate in rural Norfolk, England. It is extremely rare for Elizabeth to miss the service, which is a cornerstone of the royal family’s Christmas celebrations and brings the monarch into contact with local residents who gather outside for a glimpse of her. “The Queen continues to recover from a heavy cold and will stay indoors to assist with her recovery,” Buckingham … read more

The littlest Royals often stole the show in 2016.
We rarely get glimpses of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 1, as the whole Royal family is notoriously private. However, the kids had several adorable key moments this year. And George got a little naughty as well.
William told a TV station in Vietnam in November that his son is sometimes a “right little rascal.”
“He keeps me on my toes,” he said. “But he’s a sweet boy.”
Here are several of the … read more

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh delayed their annual train ride to Sandringham yesterday due to “heavy colds” for both. If they have the same cold that I’ve been battling all week, it’s a bad one and for the first three days, you feel like you’ve been hit by a truck. The fact that the 90-year-old Queen and the 95-year-old Prince Philip are both sick as hell just serves as reminder that they are, in fact, quite old and they might not have that many Christmases left. Which makes it extra … read more

At last year’s annual Buckingham Palace pre-Christmas lunch, the Queen and Prince Philip bum-rushed the Duchess of Cambridge and forced her to take on an additional patronage on the spot. They even made her do a photo-op for the patronage, which was for the Air Cadets. That was one of Philip’s long-standing patronages, and as Philip and the Queen are getting up in years, they’ve started editing their patronage portfolios, passing along patronages to their kids, grandkids and in-laws. Well, … read more
