"It was a direction from the Queen, so her courtiers were under strict instructions to sort it out". They are encouraged to buy each other something cheap and humorous.
Among the crowds this year was Karen Anvil, 40, from Watlington, Norfolk, who managed to snap a great picture of the Royals smiling as they left church last Christmas Day.
And while some slammed the Royal for being "cheap" and shopping at a discount store, former press secretary to The Queen, Dickie Arbiter hit back on Twitter, saying: "The Duchess of Cambridge can shop anywhere she damned well pleases". Previously, they alternated between the Royal Family and Middleton's family, but since the Queen and Prince Philip are both in their 90s, the Duke of Cambridge wants to spent as much time as possible with his grandmother.
