So, what is it like to spend Christmas with the Queen – the most famous woman on earth? Is she the sort of person you can relax with, or do you have to be on your best behaviour at all times? And who are the people who get invited to spend the holidays with her? Are they only other Royals or aristocrats, members of her extended family or close friends? What is a typical Christmas Day like with the Royal Family? Do they exchange presents just like the rest of us? After all what do you give the woman who already has everything in the world? And how many Christmas cards does the Queen send, and to whom? Does Her Majesty have a Christmas tree and where does it come from. Where do she and her guests spend Christmas and how do they get there? The answers to these and many other questions are given in this intriguing and riveting account of what really goes on at a Royal Christmas, written by one of Britain’s leading Royal writers, and based on facts from impeccable sources at Buckingham Palace.
