Queen's Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace gets underway

Two-year-old Prince George, with a mop of curls and a cute white shirt with blue trim and navy cardigan, stole the show when he arrived at the palace for the festive feast at around 12:30pm this afternoon. The young prince was seated in the back seat of a royal car with the Duchess of Cambridge, who looked suitably festive in a red coat.

In the front passenger seat of the car sat Prince Harry, 31, who looked dapper in a navy suit with light blue tie. The afternoon was a relatively succinct affair with Kate re-emerging at around 4pm, this time sitting in the front seat of the royal car. Scroll down for video. Various Kents arriving!

It sounds preposterous but a new book reveals compelling evidence buried in an MI5 file  Accepting an invitation to spend summer at his uncle's baronial home in Upper Austria, the last thing Thomas Willes expected was to be staying next to a house full of beautiful, aristocratic young women.

Is this little girl the Queen's illegitimate cousin - with a sex mad spy for a mother? It sounds preposterous but a new book reveals compelling evidence buried in an MI5 file 

The 25-year-old London stockbroker had expected little more than a month pottering around the beautiful lake of Wolfgangsee, some hearty hikes, and brushing up on his German — rather than brushing up against the racy British It-girls who visited the mansion. One day during that heady August of 1936, a Morris car with British licence plates drew up outside the house, having driven 800 miles from London. Out stepped two immaculate beauties. Loose morals: Princess Marina Dmitri, known as 'Mira', with daughter Nadejda, who might have had royal blood One was a fashion designer called Anna Wolkoff, but her passenger was the girl who really caught Willes's eye — a slim, exotic-looking 24-year old with full lips and a mesmerising stare.

Jewels on Film: Coronation '37. Seasons Greetings from Sandringham – Factually Royal. Sandringham, the massive and grand estate – is the premier destination for the Royal Family during the Christmas holidays. Stemming from decades of tradition, from the childhood Christmases of Her Majesty, Sandringham has played host to the Royal Family’s festivities for many years. With fabulous feasts, cozy afternoon walks around the grounds, and joke gifts galore, the Christmas traditions that Sandringham holds for the Royal Family are truly fascinating. King George VI: the man who shaped the nation – Factually Royal. In honour of his birthday today, we take a look at one of my favourite monarchs: King George VI. King George VI to me, is the underdog of the modern monarchy. A man who did not aspire to be King, nor groomed to be such, yet guided a nation through troubled economic times and war.

According to Andrew Simes, his grandfather sent a Christmas card to Queen Elizabeth II every holiday season, from 1952 until his death in 2011. When Andrew took up the mantle of card-writing from his late grandfather that winter, he says he received an amazing response from the royal highness herself. Simes posted on Facebook about the exchange, describing his grandfather's tradition and the Queen's response: Ever since Grandpa could remember, he made sure to send a Christmas card to his king/queen.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit. Prince George is learning to ride a horse after Kate Middleton said he'd never ride a motorbike. She recently vowed never to let Prince George on a motorbike, but it seems the Duchess of Cambridge is more relaxed about her son riding ponies. The two-year-old Prince shrieked with delight after clambering aboard a Shetland owned by friends of his parents in Norfolk.

Royal sources say he has taken to riding like a duck to water. Sadly, Santa will not be bringing George his own pony for Christmas because Kate has a serious allergy to horses, and being too close to the animals causes her to come out in a rash.
