英女王一家為了過圣誕到底有多拼?然而這些小阿奇今年都體驗不了了……
來源:Insider,The Sun,hello! Magazine,Fox News    日期: 2019-12-19

眼瞅著圣誕節就在眼前了,不少英國王室粉眼巴巴盼著威廉哈里帶著各自的老婆孩子在女王奶奶那兒來一場和睦大團圓,消除四人不和的傳聞。

 

然而,梅根卻放出了一個大瓜,直接澆滅了大家的希望……

 

哈里梅根證實今年將帶著小阿奇回美國過圣誕

 

白金漢宮方面證實,今年圣誕節,蘇塞克斯公爵夫婦將不前往桑德林漢姆莊園,而在美國洛杉磯度過。

 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are swapping out the Queen's Sandringham estate for Los Angeles this holiday season, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

 

其實王室成員們在別處過圣誕節也不是沒有過,威廉凱特夫婦這些年來也是王室和凱特娘家兩邊兒跑呢~

 

However, it's definitely not unheard of for royals to spend their Christmas elsewhere. For instance, Kate Middleton and Prince William have alternated between Sandringham and Christmas with the Middleton family throughout the years.

 

雖然如此,這消息一出,英國媒體還是炸開了鍋!

 

英國《每日郵報》:難道女王不值得享受圣誕家人團聚的天倫之樂嗎?

 

英國《太陽報》:哈里梅根不去桑德林漢姆莊園過圣誕,小阿奇要錯過這些傳統了……

 

那么,第一次過圣誕節的小阿奇,到底會錯過英國王室的哪些圣誕傳統呢?

想巧遇女王?圣誕節前的火車上見

 
 

通常,英女王都會在12月19號或20號就前往位于英國諾福克郡的桑德林漢姆莊園,而王室的其他成員們則會在平安夜抵達莊園。

 

The Queen heads up to Sandringham Estate in Norfolk early on December 19 or 20 and the remainder of the family join her on Christmas Eve.

 

女王前往桑德林漢姆莊園的方式那是相當接地氣:就坐正常排班的火車去……要知道,女王可是有自己的皇家專列的,不過很少用就是了。

 

While the Queen has been known to travel via public transport – including for her Christmas holidays in Sandringham – she also has her very own train, which she uses on rare occasions throughout the year.

同一趟列車的乘客們得多激動哇~

兄弟二人的友誼足球賽

 
 

過去6年,威廉哈里兩兄弟12月24日都會來一場友誼足球賽。

 

For the past six years Princes William and Harry have indulged in a little friendly competition in a football match on December 24.

 

倆人會從女王在當地的200名工作人員中邀請一些人一起比賽,兄弟倆分別在不同的陣營~

 

The brothers, who normally play opposite one another, invite some of the 200 members of staff from the Queen’s Norfolk estate to join them at nearby Castle Rising for the match.

不過今年哈里缺席,這場比賽恐怕要被取消了……

 

However, with Harry preoccupied this Christmas the game could well be at risk of being cancelled.

 

裝飾圣誕樹這事兒還得交給娃們

人到齊后,孩子們會被邀請去裝飾莊園里的兩棵圣誕樹。按照傳統,小阿奇本來會像夏洛特小公主、喬治和路易斯王子之前一樣參加這一環節。不過今年他可要錯過了……

 

Once everyone has arrived at Sandringham the children are invited to finish decorating the two trees that decorate the house. It is a tradition that Archie would have been encouraged to partake in as his cousins Charlotte, George and Louis have in previous years.

 

和溫莎城堡、白金漢宮20英尺高bling bling的圣誕樹不同,據說桑德林漢姆莊園的圣誕樹裝飾低調了很多。

 

While her other residences at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace are decked with huge 20ft Christmas trees and twinkling lights, the decorations at her Sandringham home are said to be much more understated.

王室禮物竟然送這些?

 
 

按照習俗,英王室成員們會在平安夜那天開啟圣誕禮物~曾經的王室御廚Darren McGrady表示,因為英國王室成員有德國血統,所以王室也延續了德國在平安夜下午茶后拆禮物的傳統。

 

One of the more unusual festive traditions that the royal family has is to open their Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. "The royals are of German descent so they weave in German traditions to their celebrations," Former royal chef Darren McGrady told Express, noting Germans typically open presents on Dec. 24. "After afternoon tea, they open gifts on Christmas Eve, as is the German tradition."

 

英國王室成員間互送的圣誕禮物可不是比誰的更精美貴重,而是看誰的更有趣,更惡搞……

 

安妮公主曾送給查爾斯王子一個皮革馬桶坐墊作為圣誕禮物。

 

Previous years have seen Princess Anne giving her brother Charles a leather toilet seat。

 

哈里王子還在“打光棍”的時候,凱特送了他一套“自己種女朋友”的裝備(a grow-your-own girlfriend kit)……喏,就是下面這個↓↓↓

據說只要把“她”丟在水里,她就會慢慢“長大”。離開水后,又會慢慢收縮……

 

不得不說,凱特也是很調皮了……

不過最調皮的顯然還是哈里王子。2013年,哈里送給女王奶奶一頂惡搞浴帽,上面寫著一句話:Ain't life a b**ch(生活就是個小婊砸!)

 

The Queen received a shower cap with "Ain't Life a B***h!" written on it from her grandson Harry in 2013.

 

這還不夠,前兩年,他還送過威廉王子一把梳子……

圣誕大餐來了!“豬包毯”是個啥?

 
 

圣誕節當天,從教堂回來后就是午餐時間啦~女王的圣誕菜單通常都是法式大餐~龍蝦沙拉、烤火雞、“豬包毯”、栗子甘藍和根菜……

 

Following the trip to church, the family will reconvene for lunch together but the Queen's menus are always in French. The royals will dine on a salad with shrimp or lobster, two enormous 25lb roast turkeys, pigs in blankets, Brussels sprouts cooked with chestnuts and root vegetables.

上文中說的這個“豬包毯”可不是小豬裹著毯子~其實這是英國圣誕大餐中常見的一道小吃:做法通常是香腸裹著培根(好像小豬裹著毯子一樣)。

 

 “Pigs in blankets” is the name for a very popular snack often served alongside the traditional roast dinner during Christmas. The reason for the strange name is linked to how the food is prepared. Usually, a small sausage is wrapped in bacon, and it looks kind of like a small pig wrapped in a blanket.

餐前餐后量體重?!還讓不讓人愉快的吃飯了……

 

據《Majesty》雜志王室專家兼編輯Ingrid Seward爆料,每個王室成員在享用圣誕大餐前后都要稱體重……

 

Royal expert and editor of Majesty magazine Ingrid Seward claims that each member of the Royal Family is weighed before and after tucking into their turkey dinner on Christmas Day.

圖片來源:thesun.co.uk

 

據說這一習俗是從二十世紀初愛德華七世在位期間開始的,初衷是為了確保所有賓客都吃得足夠飽。英國王室至今依舊延續了這項習俗,沒人能幸免……

 

Ingrid told Grazia that The Queen asks each of her guests to "weigh themselves" using a pair of antique scales when they first arrive at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk for the Christmas period.

 

But this is all to make sure guests are having a great time - and they're weighed to make sure they're being "well fed".

 

The tradition dates back to King Edward VII's reign in the early 1900s - and applies to all members of the royal clan.

 

圣誕節必備節目:收看女王演講

 

若說在英國過圣誕節必不可少的一個節目,那肯定是圣誕節當天下午3點的女王演講啦~全英上下,包括王室成員在內的所有人都會觀看。

 

Thousands of families up and down the nation will tune in to watch the Queen’s speech at 3pm on Christmas Day.

 

And the royal family is no exception with the royals settling down together to catch the five minute message after lunch.

今年的女王圣誕演講都會講些什么呢?你是不是也開始期待一年一度的最美英音啦?
