The King hosted his first annual Christmas meal for the wider Royal Family as monarch at Windsor Castle.

This year’s event saw the family brought together in the largest reunion since the Queen’s funeral in September – and was the first time the traditional gathering has taken place since 2019, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dozens of royals attended, with the Queen Consort and Earl and Countess of Wessex among the first to arrive, but notable absentees included Prince Harry and Meghan and their son Archie and daughter Lilibet, who remain in the US.
The turkey-and-trimmings lunch has typically taken place annually at Buckingham Palace on the Wednesday before Christmas, shortly before the monarch leaves for Sandringham for the festive season.

However this year, in a break from tradition, the event took place at Windsor Castle.
The first to arrive this afternoon was King Charles himself, who travelled to Windsor in a car. He opted for a smart baby blue tie for the occasion, which he paired with a navy blue suit.
Meanwhile the Queen Consort followed shortly afterward, and looked serene as she was driven into the castle grounds.
She was wrapped up warm in a padded navy jacket, which she paired with a blue velvet blouse beneath.

Prince Edward drove his wife, Sophie Wessex, and their teenage daughter Lady Louise Windsor, into the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The Countess and Lady Louise sat next to each other in the back seat of the car.
And while the Countess opted for a smart brown coat for the occasion, Lady Louise appeared to don a bright pink floral blouse for the outing.
The unassuming 19-year-old, often seen in country casuals or prim dresses, spent her childhood largely out of the spotlight, and recently started attending St Andrew’s University.
