Christmas at Windsor Castle

Christmas at Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle has been transformed for Christmas, with glittering Christmas trees, twinkling lights and festive garlands and wreaths.

WINDSOR CASTLE

She might spend  Christmas at Sandringham, but  the Queen still puts on a spectacular festive display at  Windsor Castle each December.

 

Before they started retreating to their  Norfolk estate in the late 1980s, the royal family would spend Christmases at the historic royal venue. The then Princess Elizabeth, and her younger sister Princess Margaret, would even perform pantomimes for the rest of the family.

 

Today, the castle is transformed with a variety of regal decorations to celebrate the festive season, and it's always an impressive display.

 

After 11 months of planning, THE decorations are installed in the Lantern Lobby, the State Dining Room, the Grand Reception and the castle precincts. One tradition that was "born" at Windsor is the magnificent 20-foot-high Nordmann Fir tree, taken from Windsor Great Park, which stands in St George's Hall every year.

 

The tree is typically dressed entirely in gold decorations, including miniature crowns, pine cone ornaments and twinkling fairy lights, finished with an angel sitting on the top. And it's not the only regal tree on show. Visitors will also be able to see a 12-foot-high Christmas tree adorned in shades of red and purple in-keeping with its location, the Crimson Drawing Room in the Semi-State Apartments. These were the private rooms of George IV and they are only open to visitors during the winter months.

 

Outside, wreaths have been placed around the castle's precinct and even the lampposts and lanterns will be decorated.
