The Queen's pre-Christmas lunch is held every year just before Her Majesty departs for Sandringham. Only immediate members of the Queen's family join her in Norfolk for Christmas, so this lunch sees over 50 members of the extended royal family gather to celebrate the season. Prince George was thought to have been left at home when his parents arrived without him. However, when the royals left the lunch several hours later, George and Nanny Maria were in the backseat of the Range Rover. This suggests that, hoping to minimize his exposure, the Cambridges sent George in with Nanny Maria separately. The tot was pictured clutching Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo.
