The queen and the prince Phillip had postponed their visit. Prince Phillip missed Christmas back in 2010 after having a sent the inserted. Prince William and Kate skipped Christmas at sandrighame this year, they instead went to bucklebery with her parents. I think William and Kate they wanted the middletons, they're grand parents too.
