But that just would not have been Christmassy at all.
From Ze Telegraph:
An investigation was launched after a dog walker discovered the remains at 4pm on New Year’s Day just a mile from the Royal Stud and less than two miles from the estate’s main residence.
The body was discovered shortly after the Royals attended a church service on Sunday.
Police said that a “detailed search” was being carried throughout the area of woodland in Anmer, near King’s Lynn, which is east of Sandringham House.
It remained unclear on Monday night how long the remains had been there, if they are in fact a body, if they had been identified, or the age of the victim or victims. The dog walker has also not been named.
A local resident, who did not want to be named, told The Daily Telegraph: “There is a heavy police presence even 24 hours after the discovery.
"You couldn't get very close to the site. Police said they expected to be there tomorrow."
A Norfolk Police spokesman said: “Detectives from Norfolk Constabulary have launched an investigation following the discovery of human remains in an area of woodland at Anmer, near King’s Lynn.
“The remains were found by a member of the public who reported the incident to police on Sunday January 1 shortly after 4pm. The area has been sealed off and a detailed search is currently being carried out.”
Police declined to comment further or release any details about the remains. No indication of the age or nature of the remains was given
