On a chilly Christmas Day queues were gathering from 2am outside the gates of Sandringham Church to catch a glimpse of the Royal Family. Amongst the crowd were two King Charles!
Yes, it was us intrepid repawters from The Barking Bugle, Gizmo and Pupstar. We left warm beds and comfy duvets before the crack of dawn to repawt on the morning’s events. Our editor, Frodo, decided to stay at home as he didn’t want to upset Prince Charles…what with him still waiting to be a King Charles!
‘We’ve met the Royal family on several occasions,’ woofed Pupstar, ‘but this year the number of people attending was much higher than before due to two main reasons: firstly the Queen was present this year, unlike last Christmas when she was sadly unable to attend due to illness, and secondly Prince Harry’s fiancee, Meghan Markle, was making her first public appearance with the family. It was lovely to watch the royals walking to and from the church, and in particular see Prince Harry and Meghan smile and point at us. They looked very happy together. It did appear that Meghan was being protected from too much public attention as they quickly walked all the way back to Sandringham House after the church service. In previous years the royals have stopped to linger and mingle with the crowds.
However, we were very pleased to get back home and see that we got a mention on Sky news later that evening. We also heard from many of our canine friends across the globe and were amazed to discover that we were seen on Australian and Spainish TV.’

We wish all of you out there a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
