- Along with other members of the royal family, Kate Middleton stepped out on Christmas Day to attend church at St. Mary Magdalene, close to the Queen’s Sandringham estate.
- According to the royal family’s official website, the royal tradition of attending the Christmas Day service at the local church “dates back to the 16th century” when Queen Victoria used to visit St. Mary Magdalene on December 25.
- Accompanied by Prince William, Kate Middleton wore a festive red ensemble.
Having been spotted doing some last-minute Christmas shopping in Norfolk, near to the Queen’s Sandringham estate, over the weekend, Kate Middleton appeared to be well-prepared for the festive season. Royal fans were, of course, excited to see the duchess doing her own shopping, accompanied by two of her children—Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
And on Christmas Day, Kate partook in the royal family’s annual tradition of attending a morning service at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene before heading back to Sandringham for an epic Christmas dinner.
For the festive occasion, Kate wore a completely red ensemble. Just call her Mrs. Claus!
