If you would like to take a sentimental look back at the brooches the Queen wore during her seventy years of Christmas speeches, here you go!
2022 was a year of seismic royal change, so we aren’t exactly sure what the Christmas appearances will bring. The public has been told there will be members of the British royal family gathered at Sandringham, at least, and occasionally we get a photograph or two from Denmark. So load them up in the comments, and when the Hofdames are back from their own Christmas celebrations late in the day, we’ll add something official!
There were actually two trips to church, one to the early morning service and then the full family affair, which occurs in late morning. Here is an early photo of everyone.
