King’s royal Christmas plan – guest list, menu and special Queen celebration

King Charles III will mark his first Christmas as head of the Royal Family, with the Firm set to shake up their festive celebrations.

It comes as the Royal Family look to mark their first Christmas following the passing of Her Majesty the Queen.

A number of changes are rumoured to be on the cards for the event, including a "remembrance" of the longest-reigning monarch in a newly founded event that takes place just two weeks before Christmas Day, Express reported.

Honouring the Queen at Westminster Hall, a shake-up of the guestlist and tone of the King's Speech are also said to follow.

An event to take place on December 14 will allow Members of Parliament as well as the Royal Family to mourn the first Christmas without the Queen.

Another event on the same day at New Palace Yard will allow King Charles and Parliament to honour the Queen in a "thanksgiving and remembrance" service.

Elsewhere though, the new King appears to be set for a number of changes to the guests he will host at the Christmas dinner for the family.

Despite invitations received by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, it appears that the pair will snub the invitation and be absent from the family celebrations.

Said invitation may have been snubbed, according to Cosmopolitan, because the Sussex's bombshell Netflix documentary is set to release around the same time.

With or without Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a hefty banquet is set to be offered up to attending members of the Royal Family, which will likely include Prince William, Kate Middleton, their three children as well as Princess Anne and Prince Edward.

Attending members of the Royal Family are set for quite the feast, though, with the time-honoured tradition of a full English breakfast to get the day started.

Christmas lunch may see slight variations, but for a number of years the family dined on lobster, turkey, and a Christmas pudding with treats and mince pie to follow in the afternoon, Delish reported.
