The monarch has spent most of her time at Windsor Castle during the pandemic, and even broke tradition last year by staying here instead of Sandringham for Christmas Day. The castle will host its usual 20-ft Christmas Tree in St George’s Hall for royal fans to admire, but this year there will be another impressive tree too. Windsor Castle’s Semi-State Rooms are sometimes closed to the public but this season they are open – and now the Crimson Drawing Room will feature a spectacular Christmas tree. In early December, the festive decorations at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Scotland will include a 15-ft Christmas tree in the Great Gallery, along with other seasonal decorations throughout the gorgeous State Rooms. The Queen normally spends the festive season at her Norfolk home of Sandringham House, where she receives visits from her nearest and dearest. It is believed that the festive decorations here are much more modest than in places such as Windsor Castle, as this displays in publicly open residences are there to enchant the crowds. Attending the morning service on Christmas Day at St Mary Magdelene Church is another tradition that’s stood the test of time for Her Majesty and her family. It is also custom for the monarch to keep her decorations up until February in order to mark the anniversary of her father’s death. King George VI passed away on 6 February 1952 at Sandringham House, and Her Majesty stays there each year to mark the anniversary in private before returning to Buckingham Palace. Although décor plans for Buckingham Place are yet to be unveiled, we are sure they will be just as dazzling as the other residences.
