Is that a first?

The BBC article says she's not well enough to go outside, but will be continuing with family things indoors.

I think it is a first - but she's 90, illnesses are going to start being harder on her. Think we will start seeing her & Phillip slowly doing less & less - as it should be, they deserve a rest!

I've just told DS he's in good company, as he's a drooping snot monster on the sofa, and we didn't go to church.

There must be some very sturdy genes in that pool - you never see then snotty in public.

Or is it advanced pharmaceuticals?

Yes, might be big red nose to match Rudolf and rivers of snot that they just want to keep away from the cameras.

BBC article with pix

The Tindalls aren't there either, which is unsurprising and nor is Princess Anne.

There are also pix of the Cambridges at church in Berkshire.

Prince George is wearing a very trad (ie old fashioned) velvet-collar tweedy coat, apparently over shorts.
