The Earl of Wessex, James, Queen Elizabeth’s grandson, has made his first public appearance in several months.
The young man, who turned 16 on December 17, attended the British royal family’s service at Sandringham Church in Norfolk on December 25.
Although Charles III made his debut as king last year, this is his first Christmas as host and official monarch since his coronation on May 6.

James was joined by his parents, Prince Edward and Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, and his sister, Lady Louise.
Dressed in a suit and tie, the young man has always had a shy demeanor, preferring to go unnoticed.
Since his birth, his presence has been largely invisible, and it doesn’t help that he is fifteenth in line to the throne, which has kept his name unknown to many.
Although the young man tried to remain unnoticed, some photos confirm that he did indeed spend Christmas with his family at Sandringham.
