Yesterday, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations came to an end with a Thanksgiving Service at St Paul's Cathedral followed by a reception at the Guildhall then a carriage ride to Buckingham Palace. Kate Middleton rounded out proceedings in her third Alexander McQueen creation in as many days, wearing a custom-made nude lace dress on Tuesday. The Duchess of Cambridge accessorised with a Jane Taylor cocktail hat, Prada clutch and her favourite nude LK Bennett Sledge heels. Princess Beatrice wore a cornflower blue Kinder Aggugini dress while her sister Princess Eugenie donned a purple Suzannah number, and both chose Stephen Jones headgear and Kurt Geiger Gina shoes. Camilla Duchess of Cornwall went with a Bruce Oldfield dress and Philip Treacy hat, while Zara Phillips chose a Herve Leger peplum number and Sophie Countess of Wessex wore Jane Taylor on her head and Jimmy Choos on her feet. Take a look at all the outfits here, and tell me who was most fab!
Autumn and Peter Phillips welcomed their daughter last week, and it's been revealed they named her Savannah. The Royal family gathered this weekend at Sandringham Church in Norfolk, which is also the site of their Christmas celebrations. Reverend Jonathan Riviere was reportedly the first to mention the newborn's name, in a prayer for "Peter and Autumn Phillips and their daughter Savannah". Queen Elizabeth II was driven to the service alongside Sophie Rhys-Jones, while Prince Edward and new grandmother Princess Anne walked from Sandringham House. Prince Philip and Timothy Laurence were also in attendance, but Prince Harry spent his weekend watching the World Darts Championships at Alexandra Palace.
To celebrate the news that Prince William and Kate Middleton will wed in 2011, I've updated my slideshow of royal weddings over the years. From the Queen and Prince Philip's ceremony in 1947 to Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly's nuptials in 2008, and recent European weddings, the royals certainly know how to get married in style!

Prince William placed a wreath on the memorial to British Soliders killed in Afghanistan during a Remembrance Day ceremony at Camp Bastion yesterday. Prince Harry paid his respects to those soldiers who have died in the conflict at the Wootton Bassett Field of Remembrance last week. In London, the Queen marked the day of remembrance by laying the first wreath at the Cenotaph. She was joined by her sons Prince Charles and Prince Edward, and their wives Camilla Parker Bowles and Sophie Rhys-Jones. The three party leaders Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and David Cameron also paid their respects. William has been in uniform for several occasions recently, and donned a suit to attend his friend's wedding with Kate Middleton. The mounting speculation about a Christmas engagment has taken another twist, as Wills has reportedly volunteered to work over Christmas, thus missing the royal Sandringham gathering.

The royal family were back on dry land in Scrabster, Scotland yesterday, after a ten day cruise on the Hebridean Princess.

Beatrice enjoyed her own bikini boat break last month. The group took the trip to celebrate the 60th birthday of Princess Anne next month and Prince Andrew's 50th birthday earlier this year. Prince Philip, Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones also attended.

Prince Harry and Prince William were on different continents yesterday, both undertaking official duties. GQ's King of Cool Harry was at a garden party at the British High Commission in Botswana, while Wills was at the Order of the Garter Ceremony at Windsor Castle. He wore a splendid plume, just like last year, and will now join his younger brother for their joint tour of Southern Africa. Harry missed out on the weekend's Trooping the Colour, and both of them will miss Royal Ascot which starts today. At least they've got the World Cup to enjoy!

The Queen was surrounded by her family on Buckingham Palace's balcony as she watched the fly over during Trooping the Colour on Saturday. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who have been stripped of their police bodyguards, rode in a carriage with their father Prince Andrew, following Sarah Ferguson's access for cash scandal. Prince William waved to the crowds, before travelling to Africa with Prince Harry this week. Wills arrived with Camilla, and Prince Charles also celebrated his mother's official birthday alongside his brother Prince Edward and his wife Sophie. The Queen celebrated her actual birthday in April by releasing unseen baby pictures, and since then she's been busy with politics and flower shows.

The Royal family were full of smiles as they arrived for the Christmas Day service at Sandringham Church in King's Lynn. Members of the public lined the snowy path to welcome the Queen and her family, with the female members like Autumn Phillips, Zara Phillips, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Princess Anne, Camilla Parker Bowles and Sophie Rhys-Jones all wearing an array of colourful hats. Prince William kept clean-shaven for the service, unlike last Christmas when he debuted a full beard which didn't last long! Wills, who slept rough earlier this month for homeless charity Centrepoint, was joined by Prince Harry, Prince Charles, Camilla and other members of royalty, whom lots of you would have liked to spend Christmas with. I wonder what 2010 holds in store for them.
