King Charles changes Christmas schedule at Windsor Castle

King Charles III has taken over Windsor Castle since his beloved mother Queen Elizabeth II passed away in September, and it's time to look ahead to Christmas plans.

The Royal Collection Trust announced the dates that the Christmas displays will commence at Windsor, and it's a day earlier than last year!

The exciting post read: "Dates for our popular Christmas displays have just been announced! Windsor Castle Christmas decorations will be on display from 24 November 2022 to 2 January 2023.

"Decorations at Holyrood Palace will be up from 1 December 2022 to 2 January 2023. See our bio links for more details. Both displays are included with standard admission tickets."

Décor inside the castle includes a spectacular tree which stands at 20ft. The decorating of the tree is a military operation with ladders & multiple staff to make it perfect ahead of the celebrations.

Holyroodhouse will have a slightly smaller 15-ft tree in the Great Gallery which the public will be able to come and admire from the start of December.

It has not yet been revealed if His Majesty will invite his close family to reside at Sandringham House, as the Queen used to. The royal family traditionally attend church at St Mary's Magdalene.

There are no presents on Christmas Day for the royals as they actually exchange gifts on Christmas Eve, thanks to the late Queen's German ancestry, where that is the tradition.
