Philip absent as royals attend Christmas Day church service

Philip absent as royals attend Christmas Day church service

Prince Charles, the princes' father, accompanied the quartet on the walk into the church.

"It seemed like a lovely family outing for them the day before Christmas Eve".

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex leave after attending Christmas Day Church service.

Of the stranger royal traditions, this one has to be the most curious.it's been reported that Meghan will be weighed both before and after Christmas dinner. Philip is in good health, according to a Reuters report, but "he is just spending the day privately", a source told the outlet.

Camilla missed an appearance at the Olympia Horse Show last week due to a heavy cold and is believed to be still recovering from the bug.

The foursome were also joined by the Prince of Wales, who celebrated his 70th birthday last month.

The unflattering stories have led some to dub Meghan "Duchess Difficult" because of how demanding she reportedly is.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted shopping in a Norfolk discount store as the Royal Family prepares to spend Christmas in the county.

And Kate confessed to a royal fan that Prince George and Princess Charlotte had been up "very early" opening their presents.

Until a year ago that is, when Meghan Markle arrived on the scene and began offering her own interpretation of unspoken royal style rules.

During the Queen's taped speech this year, the monarch referenced her "busy year", which saw Markle and Harry tie the knot and announce that they are expecting their first child in the spring of 2019.

She added: "We are used to all the pomp and ceremony that goes with the Royal Family but it was great to see Kate shopping with her children in the kind of discount store the rest of us use".
