Nobility: British royals attend Christmas service

The British royals traditionally attended a church service together at Christmas. King Charles III (75) and his wife Queen Camilla (76) appeared in Sandringham, eastern England, on Monday afternoon. They were accompanied by family members - including heir to the throne Prince William (41) and his wife Princess Kate (41) as well as their children Prince George (10), Princess Charlotte (8) and Prince Louis (5).

The royal family gathered at their country estate in Sandringham on “Christmas Day”, December 25th. According to the PA news agency, the family were greeted by hundreds of people on their way to St Mary Magdalene Church - some had been waiting since morning to see the royals.

Charles' brother Prince Andrew, who rarely appears in public because of his involvement in a sexual abuse scandal, was also there. For the first time in years, his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson was there, PA reported. As expected, Charles' son Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan, who have retired from the royal family and live in the USA, were not there. Harry's relationship with the other royals is considered to be broken.
