In keeping with tradition, Queen Elizabeth and the British royal family are spending the Christmas break in Sandringham estate. The royals attended Christmas services at the church of St Mary Magdalene yesterday. Below is a video of their arrival:


The Queen was accompanied in the car by Sophie, Countess of Wessex. Before entering the church, Queen Elizabeth, in a red coat and hat, acknowledged the crowd that had gathered outside. Also seen in this video are Princess Anne, Prince Edward, Prince Charles, Camilla, Peter and Autumn Phillips, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie. Bringing up the rear were Prince Harry, Prince William and Zara Phillips.

After services, the British royals had lunch and gathered to watch the Queen’s annual Christmas broadcast. This article on the Daily Mail says that the Queen watched by her lonesome, since she is too shy to watch herself on screen with company around.
