Merry Christmas, everyone (to those who celebrate), and Happy Boxing Day!
Unfortunately, Prince Philip is still in the hospital, recovering from his cardiac surgery last week; however, rumor has it that he is itching to get out (as I suspected). Despite his absence the Royal Family gathered at St. Mary Magdalene Church yesterday for the Christmas service.
In the foreground you have HRH Prince Andrew, HRH the Prince of Wales, and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall. In the background you have HRH Prince William, HRH the Duchess of Cambridge, and HRH Prince Harry. Apparently thousands of well-wishers turned out to see the family, as well as convey good thoughts for Prince Philip.
Finally, the Queen’s Christmas message, which covered the importance of family, was released yesterday. My mom and I just sat down to watch it; her first Christmas message!
Here’s to a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
