Prepare yourselves. People have gone full Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, the Queen hosted her annual holiday luncheon this week and it was full of cute Cambridge children. (And also tartan.)

Elsewhere on the internets:

Per People, Prince Philip is currently in the hospital, for “observation.” (It doesn’t sound TOO serious — especially because he went up to London and the Queen still went to Sandringham, but, you know. He is 98 years old.)

At Royal Central:  King Harald of Norway is sick and Crown Prince Haakon has been appointed regent for the moment. (Apparently, this happens occasionally in Norway — at least more than it does in the UK)

At Town & Country, this is juicy: Christina Oxenberg Is Related to Royalty and Hollywood Stars—And She Is Ready to Tell All Her Stories

T&C also looked back at a decade of royalty.

The BBC tells us how Prince Louis loves Mary Berry. Don’t we all?!

Interesting (as always!) at The Court Jeweller: BRITISH ROYAL HEIRLOOMS SOLD AT AUCTION. (Whoa, all caps! Think of that as your Extra! Extra! headline.)

And, on social media:

Harry’s disguise during this sabbatical is excellent! (Also, this is very sweet indeed.)
