King Charles, King of Britain, and his wife, Queen Camilla, received a number of members of the British royal family, at a luncheon, to eat turkey, which is the first annual banquet at Christmas for the wider royal family, which King Charles holds during his reign as king at Windsor Castle.

The biggest reunion since Queen Elizabeth’s funeral

This year’s event witnessed the family’s gathering together in the largest reunion since the funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II, last September, and it was the first time that the traditional gathering had been held since 2019, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, according to the British Daily Mail.

Dozens of members of the royal family attended, and Queen Camilla, the Earl and Countess of Wessex were among the first to arrive, but among the notable absentees were Prince Harry and Meghan, their son Archie and daughter Lilibet, who remained in the United States.

The turkey luncheon is held annually at Buckingham Palace before Christmas, shortly before the King departs for Sandringham to celebrate the festive season.

But this year, in a departure from tradition, the event was held at Windsor Castle, and the first to arrive was King Charles himself, who traveled to Windsor in a car, choosing an elegant blue tie for the occasion, which he wore with a dark blue suit..

Queen Camilla, meanwhile, followed shortly afterwards, and wore a navy quilted jacket, which she paired with a blue velvet blouse underneath.

Edward and Sophie Wessex are in the audience

Prince Edward drove his wife, Sophie Wessex, and their daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, to the grounds of Windsor Castle, and the Countess and Lady Louise sat next to each other in the back seat of the car..

While the Countess chose an elegant brown coat for the occasion, Lady Louise wore a bright pink floral blouse for the occasion..

The modest 19-year-old, who is often seen in casual wear or prim dresses, has spent her childhood largely out of the spotlight, and has recently started attending St Andrew’s University.

According to The Telegraph, the Duke of York is expected to be among those in attendance at the event, and today’s gathering comes after it was confirmed that the King, Queen and members of the royal family will spend Christmas at Sandringham for the first time in three years.
