Cheeky Charlotte grins to crowd as she walks in front of mum Kate before Christmas service


Princess Charlotte was spotted arriving at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham to attend the annual Christmas Day service.

For the occasion today, Princess Charlotte was seen wearing a claret coat, black tights, and shoes as the family approached the church.

In 2019, Charlotte and her elder brother, George made their debut for the annual tradition as the two children attended the Christmas Day walk to church.

Charlotte, then four, walked in between her parents, beaming as a crowd of royal fans lined the streets.

Rumors circulated ahead of time that the two older then-Cambridge children might be seen on Christmas day, but Kensington Palace did not confirm their attendance ahead of time.

Queen Elizabeth II died in Balmoral on September 8, aged 96, and this Christmas marks the Royal Family’s first Christmas without the late monarch.

Charlotte’s youngest brother Prince Louis also joined the rest of the family for the first time.

The cheeky four-year-old stole the show at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this year with his facial expressions and fun nature.

This afternoon the King will deliver his first speech as monarch, which is likely to reflect on the loss of his mother, and her legacy.

The festive message was recorded on December 13 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

An image of Charles, taken during the recording of his inaugural festive address had been released ahead of Christmas Day.

Prince Andrew also joined the procession with his daughter Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice alongside their husbands.

Zara and Mike Tindall also attended the service.
