Wednesday brought a festive lunch with Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace, following Tuesday’s lunch with their household – a menu of turkey and roast vegetables, though Kate, having dealt with morning sickness, sipped soft drinks, the restaurant said.
Still, she has felt better in recent days, and made a surprise appearance to present awards at Sunday’s BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year show.
Meanwhile, Royal Air Force Search and Rescue helicopter pilot William spent the weekend in Anglesey, North Wales.
Per tradition, the Queen will head to Sandringham, her estate in Norfolk, in the next day or so. It remains to be seen if William and Kate will join her and most of the royal family for the festivities, as they did last year.
