Led by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, senior members of the family will make their way from Sandringham House to St Mary Magdalene Church for the traditional service which is held every year on the Norfolk estate. It is thought unlikely that Princess Charlotte will join them due to her age but it is possible George, who was christened at the church in July, will be present. The Queen arrived in Norfolk by train last week to oversee preparations for Christmas The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will only have a short journey to make to join the family, travelling from their home at nearby Anmer Hall. Each year crowds are invited on to the grounds to watch the royals as they make their way to the church. The service will be played over speakers to those who make the journey. ...

Fears have been raised over the future of an activity centre owned by Wolverhampton council which was visited by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge just last month

The authority is reviewing the future of the Towers Residential Outdoor Education Centre in Wales which has been visited by thousands of children from the city. And there are now fears that the centre, which opened in 1961, could be sold off as part of budget cuts. The Towers outdoor centre is based in Snowdonia, near Betws-y-Coed on the A5, but is owned and run by Wolverhampton council and has been since it opened. Just last month the Duke and Duchess paid the centre a visit and tried their hand at abseiling and climbing. Next year, the council is set to make a decision on the future of the centre. It is not believed that any proposals have yet been made, but the city's Conservative group leader Councillor Wendy Thompson fears it could be sold off as the authority faces crippling bu...

With leg stretches, push-ups and jumping jacks, Prince William and Prince Harry made sure they were well warmed up ahead of their now-traditional Christmas Eve football match

Prince Harry, Prince William, Royality
The royal brothers took to the turf in Castle Rising, Norfolk, this morning for the annual fixture - playing on the same team and donning yellow and black-striped shirt. However, William, 33, and Harry, 31, appeared to be taking the match very seriously, making sure they were thoroughly warmed up. Father-of-two William was pictured bending down to touch his toes and also doing press ups on the pitch before kick-off, while he must have been chilly as he put his grey hooded sweatshirt on with white shorts. He was also pictured running around waving his arms to warm up in the cold December weather. He proudly sported stripy socks in claret and sky blue to support his football team Aston Villa. Both princes wore shirts emblazoned with the name of the Black Horse Inn, the local pub in Castl...

Prince William’s recently revealed access to cabinet papers isn’t his only preparation for kingship. The Queen is also allowing him to shadow her at confidential meetings and organises briefing sessions for him with senior members of her household, I am told. Might his father Prince Charles, 67, pass the throne straight to 33-year-old William – or do so after a short reign – as a means of expressing regret that he had to wait so long? The Prince of Wales is losing his Communications Secretary, Kristina Kyriacou. A former Tin Pan Alley PR executive, unmarried Ms Kyriacou, 49 – pictured with clients Cheryl Cole (as she was then) and Charles – will remain a consultant. She’ll deal with high-profile projects such as Charlie’s appearance with Ant and Dec and on the BBC’s Countryfile. So

"I thought he might write, 'My mother died,' because that's in the public arena and does make him different amongst his peers perhaps," she says. "And Harry's been talking a little ...

And it is sure to delight all those lucky enough to receive one. But for many older relatives it will also be a trip down memory lane. For while two-and-a-half-year-old George looks just like his father at that age, Charlotte is the spitting image of her mother as a baby. The informal family portrait was taken by photographer Chris Jelf – described as a ‘friend of a friend’ – in the couple’s private garden at Kensington Palace in October. As usual, mischievous Prince George steals the show. While Catherine Duchess of Cambridge is smiling at the camera, William’s eyes are firmly locked on his son, who is giggling and looks like he may be about to bolt as he rests on his kneeling mother’s arm. George is dressed traditionally in patterned blue jumper over a white shirt, blue shorts
