This year, in the way that it will be for a lot of families due to COVID 19 restrictions, the royals are set to have a slightly different Christmas to usual. They'll be switching up their customary trip to Sandringham House in Norfolk, and The Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, will be spending the festive period "quietly" at Windsor Castle, along with their bubble of staff. It's reported that they hope to cross paths with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, on the day, but that they will be separated from the majority of their nearest and dearest.

However, that certainly doesn't mean that the Queen's Christmas decorations will be lacking – in fact, new photos of the inside of her (literally) palatial home have royal fans super excited.

Royal reporter Omid Scobie shared two images from inside Windsor and said that one of the stars of the show is a 20 foot Norwegian Spruce tree, which will be joined by not one, not two, but five others. Casual, right? "Staff helped decorate this 20-foot Norwegian Spruce for the Queen and Prince Philip’s first Windsor Christmas since 1987," said Scobie. "The tree in St George’s Hall (where the Sussexes had their wedding reception) joins five others, including three mini trees in the Queen’s gallery."

The Royal Collection Trust also tweeted a photo of the regal spot's "festive makeover" and shared the news that the castle was once again open for public visits. "#WindsorCastle is open! Following the lockdown in England we’re happy to confirm that the Castle has reopened to the public, and has had a festive makeover whilst we were closed too!"

The Royal Family's official Instagram also shared a joyous shot of a majestic tree, along with the caption: "Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly🎶🎄 The magnificent 20-foot-high Norway spruce tree is pictured in St George's Hall. The tree was taken from Windsor Great Park and has been dressed with hundreds of iridescent glass and mirrored ornaments. The Christmas displays at Windsor Castle are now open to the public.
