Royal viewers were quick to praise the helpful instructional video, adding that they will be recreating the ‘beautiful’ Christmas decorations at home.

Two royal residences are usually the center of royal celebratory celebrations, with previous monarchs, including Queen Victoria, celebrating Christmas at Windsor Castle since the twelfth century.

However, during the reigns of King Edward VII, King George V and King George VI, the Christmas season was almost always spent at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, a tradition Her Majesty has largely adopted.

While the royals have yet to share a glimpse of their festive decorations at Windsor Castle or Sandringham, the Queen’s official residence in Scotland got a Christmas makeover earlier this month.

A highlight of the exhibition at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh is a 4.5-metre-tall tree adorned with glitzy decorations and sparkling lights in the Great Gallery, the largest room in the palace. It stands tall next to a newly installed painting of Charles II.
