The Queen’s loving gesture to great-grandchildren at Christmas revealed

Her Majesty The Queen always looked forward to Christmas.

She would invite her extended family to Sandringham each year to celebrate the holidays, and on December 25th, she would lead her loved ones on a special holiday walk to church.

The Queen also had a very sweet tradition for the younger members of her family, it has now been revealed.

Grant Harrold, a former butler who served King Charles at Highgrove from 2004 to 2011, recalled to the Mirror that the Queen used to arrange for one of the trees in one of the rooms to be left bare so the kids could decorate it.

“It was a custom she established where the grandchildren would visit and decorate a little bit together, which I always thought was a nice idea.” – he said.

The one Christmas ornament the royals never use on their trees was also disclosed by Grant. Everyone gets tinsel, but a royal home has a lot more greenery, ornaments, and lights than tinsel, he admitted.

For the first time, the royal family will celebrate Christmas without the Queen. The Queen Consort and King Charles have announced that they will continue to host the family at Sandringham.

Prince William, Princess Catherine, and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, are anticipated to join the royal couple.

Anmer Hall, the Wales family’s home on the Sandringham estate, is believed to be where they are currently residing. Additionally, there’s a possibility that all three of the royal siblings will be visible on Christmas Day.

Royal fans will be hoping to see Prince Louis with his siblings and parents this year after he nearly stole the show during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, according to the royal editor, Emily Nash. “Prince Louis is now the same age his sister Princess Charlotte was when she did her first Christmas Day walkabout after church.

Children used to only come to the service once they were a little older. When they first went, Prince William was five years old and Prince Harry was seven. Princess Charlotte, however, accompanied Prince William and Catherine when she was a young child.
