This Christmas will be a historic one in the UK, as the Royal Family arrive at Sandringham Church and King Charles prepares to make his first televised address. This will mark the first speech made by a male monarch since 1951 and the first time a king has spoken on television.

The Royal Family arrived at Sandringham Church, led by King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla. Behind him, Prince William and Kate, accompanied by their children, followed.

Seen among the royal crowd were Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall, following his return from a stint in the Australian jungle for I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

The family attended a Christmas Day service at Sandringham Church, the much-loved country retreat of the royals, and the private home to generations of British monarchs since 1862.

Sky News reports that members of the royal family were met outside the church by the Reverend Canon Dr Paul Rhys Williams before entering the church and the National Anthem was sung before the first hymn, O Come, All Ye Faithful.

King Charles will make his speech at 3pm this afternoon, UK time.
