​The Royal Family Just Debuted Their Christmas Decorations And They Are So Extra

The royal family has just given us a sneak peek at the Christmas decorations inside Buckingham Palace and they are so extra, just as we expected.

If any family is allowed to have more than one Christmas tree then it has to be the royal family.

It is safe to say that they go all out at Christmas as a new video shows their decorations being installed which includes at least six trees in one room.

Posting on the official Twitter account, Buckingham Palace revealed how the Marble Room is transformed into a Christmas wonderland.

Of course, the Queen doesn't decorate all the trees herself, so she has a team of people to help get the palace looking ready for Santa's visit.

The impressive real trees are all grown in Windsor especially for the palace and are delivered at the beginning of December.

They are then fixed in place, probably so the Corgis can't knock them over, before being decorated with some very royal decorations.

There is a miniature version of the Queen's coronation crown and a horse and carriage while a huge garland covered in baubles wraps around the grand staircase.

It will make you wish you were spending Christmas day there.

Although you would have to follow the Queen's pretty strict rules on present buying.

You're probably wondering what do you buy the family who has everything, but the Queen has already got it figured out as the family are only allowed to buy each other joke presents, and the cheaper they are, the better.

Sounds like our kind of Christmas.

As the royal family are so busy on Christmas day, they actually sit down at 6pm on Christmas Eve and open their gifts.

In the red drawing room, tables are laid out and sections are marked off with tables to show where each family member's and any of the Queen's household who is on duty for the weekend's presents should be.

There are just three rules, no-one should open their present until given permission by Prince Philip, every present should be a cheap 'joke gift', and the more inexpensive, the better.
