Royal Family News: Four Lucky Christmas Pudding Recipients Got An Extra Surprise From The Royal Family
British royal family news shows that the Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, and Prince George are doing their part to brighten the mood and lighten the load for military troops both at home and abroad this year. This Christmas season they are sending a delicious gift to a select few that is perfect for celebrating the holiday.
The royal family members were photographed before Christmas last year when they took part in a special Christmas pudding project at Buckingham Palace. The centerpiece was then six-year-old George as he took pride in stirring the pudding mixture.
As the family stirred the puddings together, commemorative sixpences were placed into the mixture. These have now been found by four lucky recipients who attended this year’s virtual gatherings. It is said that sixpence brings the finder good luck.

One of the get-togethers was attended by Julian Groves who served with the Royal Army Medical Corps for 11 years and he was one of the lucky ones to find a sixpence in his pudding.
While the pandemic has raged on Groves has been receiving regular calls from the Legion’s Telephone Buddy service to help ease the burden of his social isolation.

Grove said after discovering his good fortune, “It’s incredibly special to be part of Together At Christmas and I was amazed to discover the sixpence.”
He added, “I’ve never done anything like this before but the sense of comradeship it created made it feel like being back in the forces.”
“No matter how tough things are, the Legion always rallies round, making sure everyone has looked after.”
