Just like any other family, the Royals will be at each other's Feuds around the royal dinner table
N the eve of her Golden Jubilee year, the Queen should be looking forward to a family Christmas to Osavour. As the Windsors gather at Sandringham this weekend in rural Norfolk, she ought to be able to relax, and reflect on half a century of dedicated service. The toasts should give thanks for her good health at 75, and that of Prince Philip at 80, as well as the 101year-old Queen Mother.

At the heart of the problems are PRINCE PHILIP and his eldest son PRINCE CHARLES.
