The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge turned up at their staff's Christmas party yesterday (18.12.12).
The 30-year-old royals defied expectations by attending their Household staff member's annual festive lunch at Bumpkin restaurant in London's Notting Hill, where they tucked into a simple Â£30 three course lunch.
A restaurant source told The Daily Mail newspaper: 'The Duchess of Cambridge was looking the picture of health. William and Kate enjoyed a leisurely lunch with 27 members of their Household. It seems even the royals attend office Christmas parties - although it was a much more sophisticated affair, without all the usual drunken antics and revelry.'
The couple - who are expecting their first child together - appeared to be enjoying themselves as William sampled some mulled wine while mother-to-be Catherine stuck to soft drinks. This is only the second time she has been seen out in public since leaving King Edward VII Hospital on December 6 after being treated for acute morning sickness.
A St James' Palace spokesperson confirmed: 'The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a private luncheon today.'
Catherine - also known by her maiden name Kate Middleton - is expected to attend Queen Elizabeth's private family Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace today (19.12.12).
