Britain's Queen Elizabeth II departs the Royal Family's traditional Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk, eastern England, on December 25, 2018. (It's about a two and a half hour vehicle journey from the London royal residences.) There, the family treats each other to a Christmas Eve gift exchange, joins in a family dinner, attends services at the nearby St. Mary Magdalene Church on Christmas Day and shares a turkey lunch.

Kate and Meghan have been the subject of a series of media reports claiming there is a rift between the two duchesses.

Prince William, 36, had reportedly "voiced doubts" about Markle, ahead of her May nuptials to Harry, causing tension between the brothers.

The Fab Four showed a united front as they walked to church in Sandringham.

And Kate confessed to a royal fan that Prince George and Princess Charlotte had been up "very early" opening their presents.

According to a German tradition introduced by Prince Albert, the Royal Family exchange gifts, which are then laid out on tables to be opened on Christmas Day.

Many had brought bouquets of flowers or had got in the Christmas spirit by wearing Santa hats.

The rest of her holiday will include a lunch before the family sits down to watch the Queen's annual televised address.

Afterwards the young royals went on a brief walkabout and when Meghan saw 17-year-old Jessica holding up a small sign with her Instagram username on it, Jessica Scarlett, she instantly recognised it and gave her social media friend a hug.

During the Queen's taped speech this year, the monarch referenced her "busy year", which saw Markle and Harry tie the knot and announce that they are expecting their first child in the spring of 2019.
