An unexpected guest arrives for Queen’s Christmas lunch today.


Today, all the members of the royal family gathered at the Buckingham Palace for Her Majesty’s pre-Christmas lunch. This gathering also included Prince Philip.

The monarch annually gathers her extended family members for the meal.

It is done before leaving for Sandringham to celebrate the festive period until February. This year’s lunch is set to be particularly exciting.

And why will that be?

Well, that is because Prince Louis will be attending for the first time, as well as Princess Eugenie’s new husband, Jack Brooksbank.

Normally no pictures are released from inside the event. But it is a time when all the royals can get together and enjoy each other’’s company during the festive period.
