Onlookers hoping to catch a glimpse of Prince George and Princess Charlotte were disappointed this morning and Kate and William flew solo at the traditional Christmas Day church service at Sandringham.
Kate (33) looked stunning in a calf-length moss green coat and matching hat as she arrived at St Mary Magdalene Church flanked by her husband William and brother-in-law Prince Harry.
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance as was the Queen, who wore head to toe red, and the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornall, Prince andrew, The Earl and Countess of Wessex and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
The Royal family will walk past the 1,000 or so well-wishers who gathered along the roadsides from early morning later today after a second service.
The crowd, many of whom are decked out in festive jumpers and union jacks, have been listening to the British National Anthem and the hymn Angels From the Realm of Glory.
It had been expected that Prince George would be in attendance but Kate and William arrived alone.
The Queen will today make her annual pre-recorded Christmas Day Speech, broadcast at at 3pm.
