Queen just turned Buckingham Palace into a holiday miracle with her fresh Christmas decorations
The British Royal Family’s social media have revealed this year’s Christmas decorations at the Buckingham Palace, and they are a display of good taste and elegance.
With the holidays around the corner, 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth II seems to be ready for the Christmas season, and the monarchy’s communication machine has shared the festive makeover done to Marble Hall to welcome the celebrations.
Three towering Christmas trees are seen been assembled by Buckingham Palace staffers in a video posted to the Royal Family’s Instagram account on December 4, marking the arrival of the 2018’s holiday season at the royal residence.
Hundreds of white lights, regal decorations hanging from the 15-feet-tall trees, and a garland with red velvet bows and baubles of many colors covering the grand staircase’s handrail complete the impressive appearance of the room.

“Watch The Christmas Trees arrive at Buckingham Palace. Every year, three trees are placed in the Marble Hall – and a garland is fixed along the grand staircase,” the clip was captioned.
“The custom of displaying Christmas trees was introduced to Britain in the late 18th by Queen Charlotte, consort of King George III, although it was a yew tree rather than a fir that was used. The Christmas tree was popularized by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in the nineteenth century.”

These aren’t the first Christmas Trees the Queen has put up this year. Last week photos of the Christmas decorations at Windsor Castle were released, showing a 23-feet-tall Norman Fir adorning St. George’s Hall.
As usual, the Queen will spend most of the festivities at her private home at Sandringham, with the traditional assemblage of the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve alongside her family.
The Instagram post about the Buckingham Palace’s decorations has been reproduced more than 500.000 times in a matter of hours, and has received many comments.
“We need these guys next year! They look like they know what they’re doing,” wrote user “keren.j.c.” referring to the team installing the decorations. “One can do nothing but love and adore this,” added “carintibellahlin.”
“Much prettier than the red trees in the White House!” wrote “sandymaddox,” and the user has not been the only one to point out to the differences between what the Queen of England and the first lady of the US set up for this years’ Christmas.
On November 24, Melania Trump gave Americans a sneak peek into the progress of the decorations at the White House, posting a couple of images on her official social media.
The Trumps welcomed the19½-foot tall Fraser fir that came from a farm owned by Larry Smith of Newland, North Carolina. The tree was delivered to the White House on a green wagon pulled by a pair of horses.
Thank you to all the volunteers from across our great nation who are working hard to decorate the @whitehouse. Can’t wait to view it all tomorrow night! #ChristmasattheWhiteHouse 🌲 pic.twitter.com/rfhR7uGtf6— Melania Trump 45 Archived (@FLOTUS45) November 24, 2018
Many Twitter users who didn’t like what was done in the White House for Christmas this year had fun comparing it with the decorations at Buckingham Palace.
“The lady in the WH has no taste the Queen has taste and style!!” tweeted @ladydebbie6. “At least one grand house knows how to decorate for the holidays,” added @KatieMaeDMartin.
