The appearance of Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson (64), however, was a small sensation, as Prince Andrew’s ex-wife (married from 1986 to 1996) was last there 30 years ago. According to the PA news agency, the family were greeted by hundreds of people on their way to St Mary Magdalene Church. As expected, Charles’ son Harry (39) and his wife Meghan (42), who have retired from the royal family and live in the USA, were missing. Harry’s relationship with the other royals is considered to be broken.

Talked about reconciliation King Charles “only” in his Christmas speech, in which he called on people to have understanding for one another. “At a time of increasing tragic conflict in the world, I pray that we can do everything in our power to protect each other,” the 75-year-old said on television on Christmas Day. It was the monarch’s second Christmas address since the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, and the first since his coronation in May. Charles also spoke about environmental protection, which has been important to him for a long time. He gave his speech in front of a Christmas tree, which, according to the palace, will be replanted later.

Kensington Palace, meanwhile, has a new picture of Prince William’s offspring published. You can see Louis (5), Charlotte (8) and George (10) on a black bench. All three wear white shirts and dark shoes, with the princess and her younger brother appearing to have the same model in different sizes. You can clearly see a gap in Charlotte’s teeth.

How and where that Dutch royal couple and his daughters spend the holidays is a well-kept secret, but it is assumed that Maxima’s home country is Argentina. Before the 52-year-old, her husband King Willem-Alexander (56), the three princesses Amalia (20), Alexia (18) and Ariane (16) go on vacation, the royals traditionally complete a photo session. The family posed for this year’s picture on the steps of The Hague Palace, wrapped up in winter coats and in a great mood. However, the show was stolen by the poodle Mambo, who ran around happily and attracted everyone’s attention.

The past few weeks must not have been easy for you Prinz Frederik (55) and Princess Mary (51). After rumors of an affair surrounding Denmark’s heir to the throne persisted, the couple demonstratively appeared as a unit for the holidays and went to church hand in hand. In November, Spanish media published footage showing the 55-year-old prince taking a walk with model Genoveva Casanova.
