Don’t feel too bad if you happened to skip any family activities this holiday season, because Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall missed out on church services on Christmas morning as she’s apparently fighting a nasty cold.
Prince Charles‘ wife was meant to hang out with members of the royal family on Christmas Day, including heading out to St. Mary Magdalene church, but according to royal correspondent Rebecca English, she had to bow out thanks to a cold that also saw her miss out on Queen Elizabeth‘s annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace on Dec. 19. The former is why Camilla is missing from the photo below that shows her husband taking a walk with his sons, Prince Harry and Prince William, and their wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle on Dec. 25.

Charles arrived at the Christmas festivities alone before joining other members of the royal family. But Camilla wasn’t the only person missing from the church trip, as the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, did not attend either. But not to worry Philip’s fan club, because Rebecca says that Philip is not sick, but he instead decided to spend some with his family away from the public eye.
Aside from some folks missing from all the Christmas events, it seems like the day was a good one for the royal family and put to rest rumors of a feud between Meghan and Kate — at least temporarily. The two women were spotted smiling together on their way to Christmas Day service at church, so we’re going to take this as a sign that the pair is either getting along, or they’re both biting their tongue as they utter awful things about each other under their breath.
As for Camilla, we hope she gets better soon. Then again, perhaps she faked sick to keep from hanging out with the family. Hey, we’ve all done it before.
