The family’s holiday season get-together was not affected by the release of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Netflix docuseries earlier on December 8th. Page Six royal photographer Arthur Edwards spoke about the family’s recent meetup and said that as the families walked down the aisle together. This gave a clear message that the family was united during the Harry and Meghan saga.
Moreover, Edward also shared his disappointment with the “Harry & Meghan” docuseries. He commented on Harry’s book “Spare,” which he admitted did not have pleasant stories about the royal family either. He added that Harry couldn’t keep attacking his family; instead, he could use these forums to promote his different charities.

Like every celebration has an exclusive guest list, the royal Christmas celebration, being the biggest event, also had an exclusive guest list. The guest list included King Charles and Queen Camilla, along with the Prince and Princess of Wales and their lovely children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. You cannot forget Harry and Meghan from the list, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The Countess of Wessex and their children were also there. Princess Annie and her family were also there as guests for the Christmas celebration. During the Queen’s time, the celebrations used to last for two to three days, but this was a thing of the past now.
The fact that the Queen was no longer there to collect the fractured family was evident in the Christmas celebrations.
