The Cambridges Christmas Card eagerly awaited
After a turbulent year 2021, hopefully the British royal family will have a peaceful Christmas party. Queen Elizabeth, 95, reportedly wants to celebrate this with her family in Sandringham after they had to celebrate separately due to the pandemic last year. While the preparations there are certainly in full swing, Royal fans can look forward to one tradition in particular: the annual Christmas cards that the members of the British royal family give out on the festive season.
Prince William, 39, and Duchess Catherine, 39, are also among the royals who, together with their children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, publish a new family portrait every year at Christmas time. Last year, the portrait was shot by photographer Matt Porteous and showed the Cambridges relaxed in their home at Notes Hall in Norfolk. In casual clothing, the family posed on bales of hay outdoors. The year before, William and Kate could be seen with their children next to an old motorcycle. It remains to be seen which motif the Cambridges have chosen for 2021.
Royal Family condemns BBC documentary
It’s not often that Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, and Clarence House make a joint statement. But that’s what happened now after the BBC showed a documentary about the British royal family on Monday, November 22nd, 2021. The lawyers of the Royals are to be available on demand for the broadcast of the two-part series “The Princes and the Press”, reports “Daily Mail”. Among other things, the wedding of Prince Harry, 37, and Duchess Meghan, 40, is discussed and an American lawyer and her alleged confidante, journalist Omid Scobie, have their say.
The palace is now said to have threatened to boycott future BBC projects after employees were denied access to the project in advance. “A free, responsible and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy,” said a joint statement that the three royal households of Queen Elizabeth, 95, Prince Charles, 73, and Prince William, 39, were broadcast before the broadcast gave the broadcast to the BBC. “Still, all too often exaggerated and unsubstantiated claims from unnamed sources are presented as facts and are disappointed by anyone, including the BBC, to give them credibility.”

Prince Charles: Will Kensington Palace be shut down when he’s king?
Queen Elizabeth, 95, is still the royal head – mind you, the one that has existed for the longest time. But in a few years her son Prince Charles, 73, will take over the scepter and crown. Then the heir to the throne should want to usher in a new era: He is aiming for a downsizing of the monarchy, among other things to relieve the British taxpayers.
Now, according to the Daily Mail, there is speculation whether Charles also wants to “shut down” Kensington Palace – a beautiful 21-room apartment that has been renovated for several million pounds and is located in the heart of London near Hyde Park. The reason: The apartment (Apartment 1A) planned for Prince Harry, 37, and Duchess Meghan, 39, has still been empty since they moved to the USA. According to reports, Prince William and Duchess Catherine, both 39, who currently live there with their three children, are planning to move to Windsor.
The heir to the throne celebrates his 73rd birthday
According to a source, according to the Daily Mail, Charles “could sell the rest of the property on long-term leases and earn some income.” Another lucrative source of income. What the future king is really up to when the time comes is still in the stars.
Duchess Catherine: Rare appearance with her family
Duchess Catherine, 39, is rarely accompanied by her own family on royal appointments. But at the “Royal Variety Performance” her parents Michael Middleton, 72, and Carole Middleton, 66, obviously made an exception. As pictures of the event show, Kate and Prince William, 39, were accompanied by the two and took a seat together in a box in the Royal Albert Hall in London. Duchess Catherine’s brother James Middleton, 34, and his wife Alizée Thevenet, 32, also did the honors.
The fact that Kate’s family rarely takes part in royal events is by no means a sign of a bad relationship. On the contrary: Duchess Catherine and Prince William have a special bond with the Middleton. Above all, Carole is supposed to be a special caregiver for her son-in-law, who had to lose his own mother much too early. At the “Royal Variety Performance”, however, Kate’s family members seem to have deliberately held back. While the 39-year-old fascinated in a breathtaking glitter robe, her mother and sister-in-law chose subtle dresses in black. James and Michael Middleton also obviously didn’t want to cause a stir and opted for simple, if elegant black suits.
