How the royals start Boxing Day with the same Indian dish every year – and it was a favourite of the Queen’s


YOU might be planning the ultimate turkey sandwich today, but for the royal family Boxing Day will start with a slightly more unusual dish.

King Charles enjoyed Christmas Day at Sandringham House accompanied by close family members including the Queen Consort Camilla and the Prince and Princess of Wales.

King Charles and other members of the Royal family will sit down to an unusual breakfast today

Kedgeree consists of flaked fish (often haddock), boiled rice, boiled eggs, curry powder, butter or cream

The family’s festivities are steeped in tradition and Boxing Day is no different with the day typically starting with a leisurely breakfast.

According to HELLO! on Boxing Day, the royals enjoy a buffet breakfast of kedgeree, bacon and eggs.

Kedgeree consists of flaked fish (often haddock), boiled rice, boiled eggs, curry powder, butter or cream.

It was also thought to be a favourite of the late Queen’s.

It’s just one of the family’s festive traditions on Boxing Day, following a busy Christmas Day at Sandringham in Norfolk.

The royals spend much of the day enjoying outdoor activities, including walking, horse riding and of course – the annual Boxing Day pheasant shoot.

Yesterday the royal family attended a church service St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham in Charles’ first Christmas as King.

Yesterday’s gathering will also be the first time the royal family has spent Christmas at Sandringham since 2019.

Queen Elizabeth II hosted 32 Christmases at Sandringham but was forced to cancel her annual festivities in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid pandemic.

The royal standard is flying above the private Norfolk estate where Charles and the Queen Consort will be on Christmas Day, marking a return to traditional royal festivities.

Sandringham House has been the private home of four generations of British monarchs for more than 160 years, and now belongs to the King.
