The (younger) royal couples-Kate Middleton and Prince William, Meghan and Prince Harry-all took what looks like a gorgeous walk from Queen Elizabeths's house to the Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Queen's Sandringham, England estate.

GettyPrincess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Princess Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend Christmas Day Church service at Church of St Mary Magdalene on December 25, 2017.

A crowd of about 200 people lined up waiting to see the royal family members after the carol service, some waiting since the early morning hours.

The service is the first time Meghan and Harry have appeared together since their first official public engagement, shortly after announcing their upcoming wedding last month. The crowd was larger than in past years, perhaps because of curiosity about Markle. She and Prince Harry plan to marry at Windsor Castle in May.

"The rules governing who curtsys to whom are not strictly based on the order of succession, but are rather based on a document from 2005 called the "'Precedence Of The Royal Family To Be Observed At Court".

Looking back on the past year, Queen Elizabeth will say, "We think of our homes as places of warmth, familiarity and love... there is a timeless simplicity to the pull of home".

A year ago was the first time since she began spending Christmas at Sandringham in 1988 that the Queen had missed a Christmas Day service.

This break with the usual protocol can be interpreted in several ways: Either the protocol was never as rigid as assumed, or the royal family - acutely aware of the need to make adjustments with the times - is adapting to a new era and a different kind of royal bride-to-be. Meghan dressed in a chic camel coat with a matching brown beret, while the Duchess chose a festive checked coat which displayed her growing baby bump.

Markle, 36, and Harry, 33, announced their engagement November 27 and, just a few days later, attended their first official engagement as a newly engaged couple in Nottingham, England.

The queen and Philip are spending the holidays at Elizabeth's country estate in Sandringham, 110 miles (175 kilometers) north of London.

"I describe that hospital visit as a "privilege" because the patients I met were an example to us all, showing extraordinary bravery and resilience", she says.

Queen Elizabeth also had kind words for her husband, who this year stepped down from most public duties because of his advancing years. She praises him for his "support and unique sense of humor".

The Queen noted in her annual Christmas message that the family was looking forward "to welcoming new members into it next year".
