Christmas eve is a time of parties, receptions and expectations of the holiday. At Buckingham Palace a few weeks before Christmas held a diplomatic reception with members of the British Royal family, and this year was no exception. Queen Elizabeth II staged an annual event, and her children and grandchildren held tradition.
Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived for the gala evening a few hours after attending a Christmas party thrown for members of families of servicemen of the RAF.
