Princess Kate’s Christmas Day regret is so relatable

When the royals were on their way to church on Christmas Day in 2019, the Princess of Wales shared a relatable regret with onlookers as she paused and chatted with them.

Catherine and Prince William’s oldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, attended the service for the first time ever.

The royal mother looked fashionable as usual while attending the morning service at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham. However, she later admitted to Karen Anvil and her daughter Rachel that she regretted her clothing choice because it made her feel too hot.

At the time, Karen stated to The Metro: “Kate was talking to my daughter about clothes and how she was feeling too hot. She added: ‘I really shouldn’t have worn this.”

Charlotte was seen accepting a doll from Karen, who famously took the “fab four” photo of the Cambridges and Sussexes going to church together in 2017. Karen also gave Charlotte a doll. The young child received a pink inflatable flamingo in addition to a doll from another royal admirer, and she sweetly approached her to give her a hug in appreciation.

Prince Louis, then one, stayed at home nearby instead of going to church with his parents and older siblings. The Queen, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie were among the other members of the royal family who were outside on Christmas Day.

The Cambridges appeared to have enjoyed their Christmas with the other royals. Mike Tindall, the husband of Zara Tindall, has previously provided an insight into the family’s traditions at Sandringham, despite the fact that it is a private matter.

The former rugby star was asked on a House of Rugby podcast in 2018 if Christmas was good at the castle, to which he responded: “Yeah it is good. So Christmas Day is a little more quiet because it’s actually a cold buffet because they give everyone the day off, and their big day is Christmas Eve.”

The family gathers around to watch the Queen’s speech “with a little glass of something,” according to Mike. When it came to television choices in 2018, many other family members preferred the Downton Abbey Christmas special. There are many people who watch it, but I don’t, he said.

Just before Christmas in 2019, the Cambridge family joined the rest of the royal family for a Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace, and Mike talked openly on the podcast about the occasion.

He stated: “The family lunch – there must be about 70 of us there – there are seven tables and the kiddies have their own little one in a different room. I was on Prince Charles’ table. It was lovely, really good.” Mike was also asked if the royals take part in Secret Santa, to which he replied: “Not on that day – no.”
