Royal enthusiasts from various places are gearing up to witness King Charles and his family on their traditional Christmas Day walk to St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham. Although only a select few can join the royals inside the church, there’s an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the family before they gather for a sermon and hymns.

Scheduled to arrive shortly before 11 am, the royal procession to the church is a highlight of the day. To enhance the chances of witnessing this spectacle, Norfolk Police recommend arriving well in advance to access the public viewing area near the church, where standard security measures, including entry searches, will be in place.

Outside the church, the family is expected to be welcomed by Reverend Canon Dr Paul Rhys Williams before ascending the church steps. The National Anthem will be sung and the opening hymn, “O Come, All Ye Faithful.”

Anticipated attendees include King Charles and the Queen Consort, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and their children George, Charlotte, and Louis. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not expected to be present.

The service will also see the attendance of Princess Royal and her family, along with other members like Zara and Mike Tindall, Edward and Sophie Wessex with Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, and Princess Beatrice, her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and his son Wolfie.

Speculation surrounds a potential appearance by Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, suggesting a cordial relationship despite her divorce from Prince Andrew in 1996.

Following the church visit and interactions with well-wishers, the family is set to enjoy a traditional turkey lunch. Post-meal, it’s customary for members of the royal family to gather and watch the Queen’s televised address, airing at 3 pm on December 25, with expectations of references to ongoing global conflicts.”
