According to reports, the Queen is set to host her traditional Christmas lunch for her extended family at Windsor Castle next week. And Mike Tindall, husband of the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall previously revealed the table set up for the event. The Queen’s Christmas celebrations don’t just start on Christmas Eve – she also usually hosts a festive event a few days before this.
It sees her throw a huge Christmas lunch for all her loved ones at Buckingham Palace – with about 70 members of The Firm attending 2019’s festivities. This year, the party will reportedly hopefully take place next Tuesday at Windsor Castle, rather than Buckingham Palace, where the Queen is currently in residence.
It is said it will see Her Majesty host an evening with wine, crackers and a feast inside the castle with extended family — before going to Sandringham, Norfolk, for Christmas itself. And even though children such as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Mia Tindall are invited to the event, they don’t sit with the other royals.
Instead, they have their own room, where they enjoy their Christmas meal, according to Mike Tindall, husband of the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall.
In 2019, the former rugby player spoke about the celebrations on his rugby podcast, and shared a few exciting details. His co-stars James Haskell and Alex Payne asked which of the seven tables he sat. They asked: “Do you find yourself upgrading every year and getting closer to the main table or are you off out the back?
“Is there a promotion and relegation based on the year’s performance? Because if there is I imagine you’re pretty much sitting on the right-hand side of Her Majesty.” Mike stayed quiet throughout the jokes, but later added: “I was on Prince Charles’s table, it was lovely.”
He then divulged that the royal little ones have their own table in a separate room away from the adults. He said: “This is the family lunch, there were seven tables so there must have been about 70 of us there. “The kiddies have their own little one in a different room.”
It is understood that this year, three of her four newest great-grandchildren – August Brooksbank, Lucas Tindall and Sienna Mapelli Mozzi – are expected to be at the party. Last month, the Queen told her family she is well enough to host Christmas at Sandringham after recovering from a back sprain.
She assured them she is feeling “far better” and is “looking forward” to the traditional festive get together at her Norfolk estate. Concern for the Queen’s health has been heightened in recent months after she pulled out of a number of major engagements.
