Church – The public usually gets to see the Royals when they head out to a traditional Christmas Day church service at St Mary Magdalene.

Christmas lunch – Royal Chef Darren revealed exactly what the Queen eats during an interview with Good Housekeeping. He said: “After church, that’s when they have a big lunch that includes a salad with shrimp or lobster, and a roasted turkey, and all of your traditional side dishes like parsnips, carrots, Brussels sprouts, and Christmas pudding with brandy butter for dessert.

“They stick with the same meal year after year.”
