On Thursday morning the Queen got spotted arriving at King’s Lynn railway station in Norfolk from London, snuggled up in a warm camel coat and a headscarf, flanked by a security team as she made the journey by herself.

Her Majesty smiled broadly as she boarded her carriage after the train ride that she has made a yearly habit of taking.

Usually accompanied by Prince Philip, he hasn't been spotted this year but spends most of his time at Windsor now that he has retired.

The Queen always takes her trip to Sandringham the day after her party at Buckingham Palace. It's an ideal time to catch up with some of the extended family.

Prince William, Kate, with their three children and their nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, along with Prince Charles and Princess Anne got spotted arriving at the palace. Meghan and Prince Harry traveled in another vehicle.

Other attendees that got pictured arriving included Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex with their children James, Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor, Peter and Autumn Philips, and Zara and Mike Tindall.

Christmas is full of tradition for the Royals, as they open their presents on December 24, before sitting down for a formal festive dinner feast. On Christmas Day the family attends the service at St. Mary’s Magdalene before returning to Sandringham House for lunch.

The afternoon is spent around the television watching the Queen’s annual speech. Chances are that some of them might be nibbling on one of the Queen’s favorite treat, gingerbread biscuits.

Her Majesty’s chefs prepare countless amounts of food for functions throughout the year, and the holidays are the busiest of them all. However, her chefs recently posted their recipe for the Queen's favorite gingerbread biscuits.

The Buckingham Palace pastry chefs shared a detailed blog post titled, ‘Christmas Ginger Bread Biscuits’ where they lay out every step in detail, from prep work to the finishing touches. If you have a sweet tooth like the Queen, this is a must.

As Christmas draws closer rumors were abound about Doria Ragland, Meghan Markle’s mother, and her invite from the Queen to celebrate Christmas with the rest of the royals.

While some speculated that the Queen would never make such an exception, other does not see it as that much of a stretch. It’s Christmas time, her only daughter is pregnant and far away from her own family.

Not that they are a close family. Thomas Markle Jr said it had been years since they spent Christmas together as a family. In the meantime, Doria got spotted in California, and it is unclear how she will spend Christmas Day.
