For the first Christmas following 伊丽莎白女王‘s death in September, King Charles IIIQueen Camilla will return to a beloved holiday tradition.

The royal family is set to spend Christmas at Sandringham, 已故 伊丽莎白女王‘s beloved country estate in Norfolk.

During her life, the history-making monarch would take the train from London to Norfolk in December to spend Christmas at the country residence. She would usually stay at Sandringham until the anniversary of her father King George VI’s death and her accession to the throne in early February.

由于 COVID-19 大流行, the royal family was separated for the past two Christmas holidays. 在 2020, the Queen and 菲利普亲王 spent the holiday at Windsor Castle apart from other family members. 伊丽莎白女王 was joined at Windsor Castle by Charles and Camilla last year after plans to return to Sandringham were scrapped due to rising cases of coronavirus.

King Charles will likely be joined at Sandringham by many members of the family including his siblings — Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward — as well as his son 威廉王子, daughter-in-law 凯特·米德尔顿 和他们的孩子.

Each Christmas, the royal family makes a trip to St. Mary Magdalene church for mass, followed by greeting well-wishers. They then head back to Sandringham to enjoy a traditional turkey holiday feast.

今年, King Charles will record his first Christmas broadcast, which the family traditionally watches at 3 下午. 当地时间.

同时, Windsor Castle is already decked out for Christmas.

上个星期, one month to the day before Christmas Eve, the Royal Collection Trust unveiled the Christmas décor in Windsor Castle. Visitors can tour the ornate displays throughout the British royal family’s ancestral home through Jan. 2, 2023.

Guests will feel the spirit upon arrival, with foliage and wreaths fastened to gates and lampposts throughout the grounds. The Grand Staircase of the state apartments has been laced with garland, unmissable before moving into St. George’s Hall. The festive focal point of the Christmas presentation is displayed there — a 20-foot Nordmann Fir tree, sustainably grown nearby in Windsor Great Park and shimmering with hundreds of ornaments.

One tree just wouldn’t be enough for the cavernous castle, and another evergreen rises in the Crimson Drawing Room, which visitors can explore along with the Semi-State Rooms. The impressive Waterloo Chamber is also dressed up for Christmas, with an elaborate display of Royal Collection items arranged on a table.
