Duchess Kate is pretty in tartan at Christmas service, says Prince George had 'lovely' holiday

  • Christmas services the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and nearly all of the royals -- but no Prince George, alas! Per annual tradition, Kate Middleton and Prince William were on hand at St. Mary Madgalene Church, the church on Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England, for the late-morning Christmas services. Wearing a tartan Alexander McQueen coat and Gina Foster hat, Middleton, 31, joined royal in-laws Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, a still-bearded Prince Harry, Prince Charles and Camilla, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Prince Andrew, pregnant Zara Phillips and husband Mike Tindall, Prince Edward and wife Sophie (with their daughter, Lady Louise) and other royals in the procession. (Only the youngest royals, including 5-month-old Prince George, stayed behind at the estate.) About 3,000 royal watchers had gathered outside the church since 4 a.m. Christmas morning, and speakers were set up outside the building playing Christmas music.

    Inside the church, the service was conducted by Jonathan Riviere, the rector of Sandringham, and included a rendition of "Christians, Awake" and "Once in ROyal David's City." After the service, Middleton and the Queen greeted well-wishers outside the Church -- and the Duchess dished to a group of women about Prince George's morning opening presents.

    Cicely Howard, 75, gabbed with the Duchess, and told reporters: "Kate told me he was having a lovely day but was more interested in the wrapping paper than the presents."

    William, meanwhile, told the crowd: "We've had a good morning with George and I can't wait until next year when he's bigger."

    As they walked back to the house, William and Kate showed the subtlest sign of PDA -- holding hands as they waved to well-wishers.
