Pregnant Kate Middleton made an appearance at a special pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace yesterday. Kate and her husband, Prince William, arrived separately, but they were later spotted leaving together in the same car. Prince Charles also attended the event with his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and other members of the royal family.
Despite her recent struggle with hyperemesis gravidarum, Kate looked like she was in a happy mood as she headed into the palace. Although Kate's family didn't attend the private lunch, a new report claims that the queen has invited Kate's parents to celebrate Christmas with the royal family at the Sandringham Estate. This is big news for royal watchers, as the queen's Christmas celebration has usually been exclusively for royals.
