Royal kids sit away from others at Queens Christmas lunch, says Mike Tindall

Mike Tindall has revealed the royal children sit away from the adults during the Queen's annual Christmas lunch.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II hosts a festive event for the family days before Christmas Day, which sees members of The Firm enjoy quality time together in Buckingham Palace each year.

It's been said that this year the fun-filled occasion will take place next Tuesday 21 December at Windsor Castle, where the 95 year old monarch is currently staying.

The joyous event will have everything from wine and crackers to a grand feast in the castle to celebrate the holiday with the extended family.

Now, the Queen's granddaughter Zara Tindall's husband Mike has shared that the royal children, including Kate Middleton and Prince William's kids sit in a completely different room to the adults.

Speaking to James Haskell and Alex Payne on their podcast The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, the star spoke out about the lunch they had back in 2019 before the pandemic hit.

"Do you find yourself upgrading every year and getting closer to the main table or are you off out the back?" his co-hosts asked.

"Is there a promotion and relegation based on the year's performance? Because if there is I imagine you're pretty much sitting on the right-hand side of Her Majesty."

While Mike, who recently stepped out with his wife for the Legoland launch, remained quiet throughout the jokes, he later shared: "I was on Prince Charles's table, it was lovely."

He then shared how his kids Mia, seven, Lena, three, and baby Lucas, eight months, alongside other royal children like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's kids Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, all sit in a different room for the festivities.

"This is the family lunch, there were seven tables so there must have been about 70 of us there," he explained, before adding: "The kiddies have their own little one in a different room."

A source shared how the Queen will go ahead with the Christmas celebrations despite the rising cases of the Omicron Covid-19 variant, as this will be the first time she celebrates the festive period without her late husband Prince Philip.

The source said: "Currently it is going ahead, but obviously it will be under review right up until the last moment."
