christmas with the cambridges!

The royal family are ramping up for Christmas, with Prince William (37) and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge getting in the festive spirit by joining forces with cooking legend Mary Berry to whip up some Yuletide fare. The couple have been filming a TV special called A Berry Royal Christmas with the 84-year-old in which they prepare food to thank people working and volunteering for charities close to their hearts, including those supporting homeless people and those with addiction issues. People who’ve had a sneak peek of the show say it gives a great insight into Kate (37). “It’s really heart-warming,” one source says. “You get a really good sense of who [Kate] is – more so than ever before.” Meanwhile, the trees, tinsel and baubles are out of storage at Windsor Castle, with staff…

from the editor

Every year, the same fierce debate erupts in the Weekly office – what is the best Christmas song of all time? Everyone has a strong answer. Senior sub-editor Emma cannot go past Mariah Carey’s seminal classic All I Want for Christmas Is You. Production editor Rebecca loves the traditional Silent Night. Our creative director Mirella adores Away in a Manger. Designer Nicole’s best-ever option is Do They Know It’s Christmas? while for art director Béla and senior sub-editor Bronwyn, there’s no other option than The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York. As for myself and editor Alice, this particular debate is one we have with gr eat gusto. We both adore Christmas – the tinsel, the lights, the festive movies, all of it - and we agree on a lot, like the fact…

back to the abbey downton’s grand return

We’re going back to Downton! A sequel to this year’s wildly successful Downton Abbey movie is in the works, a producer of the flick has confirmed. After a very impressive box-office performance – that delved back into the Crawleys’ aristocratic lives after the TV series ended in 2015 and made almost $300 million worldwide – work has begun on a second feature film, says producer Gareth Neame. “We’re having those conversations,” he tells. “We’re working on what the story is, and when we might be able to make it. “We started vaguely thinking about it [a sequel] before the release of the movie. But we were kind of holding our breath. The reaction to the film, the press tour in the US and buildup to release were so strong. And then it was…

a not-so jolly season her majesty’s christmas horribilis

Christmas is normally a time for families to come together with good cheer and to reflect on the achievements of the past year. But it seems the Queen will be deprived of all these things this year - her family will not all be with her at Sandringham and as the scandal of Prince Andrew and the paedophile rages on her look back over 2019 is likely to be less than joyous. In short, it looks like being something of a Christmas horribilis for the 93-year-old. A royal insider says, “It’s been a tough year for Her Majesty, not that anyone would guess it from the expression on her face. She’s always been a believer in ‘eyes and teeth’ when things are difficult, so expect plenty of smiles and waves on the traditional…

spreading the love  antonia’s first family christmas

To say it’s been a year to remember for actress Antonia Prebble is something of an understatement. From dealing with the aftermath of a devastating fire at the new home she and husband Dan Musgrove had just bought, through to welcoming their first child, there certainly hasn’t been a dull moment for the Westside star. “You know when you feel like you’re juuuuuuust on top of things? It’s a lot of that at the moment – we’re only just treading water!” she says with a laugh. “It’s definitely one of those times where if one thing changes, everything else is going to come crumbling down. The ‘being a mum’ part is actually fine, it’s straightforward, but it’s all the other elements that are going on at the moment that’s making it all a…
