The move has been put in place to protect senior members of the royal family and as “there will be a lot of teenagers in attendance this year who are very mobile-friendly. It sounds rather funny, but the truth of the matter is they don’t want a photo of the King trying to squeeze a roast potato into his mouth appearing on social media. Not only will there be extended members of the family in attendance but also complete outsiders, so it’s very important to ensure that no unexpected photos or videos appear online.”

How royal family will celebrate Christmas this year

The outlet reported that royal family’s “guest list is quite extensive this year and some people are attending who are not very close to the family. The family are treating this like a formal event for the first time which means everyone needs to be on their best behaviour.”
