It’s December! Finally, it’s acceptable to pull that Christmas tree from the attic and start dishing out the decorations.
At least that’s what the Queen thinks. In fact, she’s feeling so festive she’s put up her decs in Windsor Castle, and they’re really quite understated.
Ho ho ho, of course they’re not - they’re OTT as per. The first is in the Crimson Drawing Room, just a cheeky 15-footer, which just about manages to stand out among the ornate gold cornices and gigantic chandeliers with its fairy lights, oversized baubles and shiny red stars. Fancy.
And if that’s putting your humble sapling to shame, then don’t even look at her second tree.
Yep, a second tree. The 20ft Nordmann Fir is in the castle’s St George’s Hall, and it’s topped with an angel which could be the same size as Her Maj herself.
Impressive. But hey, don’t get green with envy. Liz II is good at sharing, so you can go and see the festive bushes at the Christmas at Windsor Castle events, which run until January 5. Find out more here.
Or, go visit one of London’s loveliest Christmas trees a little closer to home. These babies really are worth pining over.Share the story
