It’s Christmastime with the royals!

Kate Middleton and the rest of the Royal Family were out in full force Thursday morning for Christmas service at St. Mary Magdalene Church at the queen’s country estate in Sandringham, Norfolk, England.

Clad in a Moloh tweed coat and recycling her pillbox hat by Lock and Company, the Duchess of Cambridge was all-smiles as she greeted fans gathered outside with gifts for her family. Kate capped off her look with brown heels by Emmy shoes, Cornelia James gloves and Catherine Zoraida earrings.

Aside from husband Prince William, the expectant mom was also joined by royal members Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Prince Philip. Kate’s own immediate family — including her parent, Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton, brother James Middleton and sister Pippa Middleton — were also in attendance for the service. According to U.K’s The Mirror, the Duke and Duchess left their son, Prince George, at home with the nanny because they feared he weather might have been too cold for the toddler.

“I’m sorry we didn’t bring George but you would have heard him in the church,” Kate explained to one little girl in the crowd after receiving a box of chocolates for her son. Meanwhile, William was overheard joking to well-wishers that he was looking forward to seeing what “destruction” George had created when they got home.

Let’s just hope he didn’t ruin his adorable Christmas jumper sweater.
