Are there photos of HM and the DoE jumping the turnstiles before dashing on to the train?

It's been reported that Amner Hall will not be "ready" for Christmas.  I'm sure plenty of people have had to continue to live in their houses while serious redecoration and construction is going on, but luckily the Cambridges don't have to worry about that!

I do find it amusing that the DM says Queen Victoria started the Christmas-at-Sandringham tradition.  I wonder if she ever actually spent a night there!

This will probably mean the Midds stay at home. 

According to Katie Nichols http://www.vanityfair.com...ce-george-first-christmas the Cambridges will arrive at Sandringham on Christmas Eve and leave after the Boxing Day shoot. In other words they'll do what most of the other royals at Sandringham seem to do.  The Midds will get them from late on Boxing Day probably.

She did - when she went there in 1871 when her son and heir was deathly ill with typhoid. As that was around the 14th December it is possible that she stayed there for Christmas that year but if she did, and I have no information that she did, it would have been the one and only time and only because Bertie may have still been too weak to travel to Windsor for the normal Christmas festivities.

"Have yourself a very ROYAL Christmas! The ingredients that make a Sandringham festive feast so special... and how you can emulate the occasion, by the Queen's cousin"



"The undoubted guest of honour at Sandringham for the Royals’ Christmas break this year will be Prince George, who is now aged five months. For George’s father, Prince William, the formality of the festive get-together will be all too familiar. But for the Duchess of Cambridge, still something of a novice, navigating the rituals and strictly choreographed Royal Christmas will be more tricky.

She has already revealed she is nervous about the number of changes of outfits expected: she will need everything from evening gowns, day dresses, smart suits and casuals. On Christmas Day alone, she will be expected to change five times.

In all, some 25 close family will arrive at Sandringham, among them Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, Zara Tindall and husband Mike, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex, and Lady Sarah Chatto and her husband Daniel....."

Five outfits for one day?!  I love playing dress-up as much as the next person, but that is just ridiculous to me. 

I would however, pay good money to see Queen Elizabeth in a shower cap that reads, "Ain't Life a Bitch".  Seriously.  That would make my year.  I might even be willing to send over some money for the royal family's upkeep each year if it meant that I got to see that.

In reality , it is probably 3 changes....breakfast/lunch, tea, evening.  If one went hunting, then outdoors clothes.  The press makes out that even changing clothes(which is all she does except having said clothes blow up) is such an imposition on poor , silly Snowflake .   She has enough clothes that she could change every hour on the hour.
