The Queen puts on a royally good Christmas display as an elaborately decorated 20 FOOT Nordmann fir goes on show at Windsor Castle

A member of staff adds a gold bauble to the 20ft Nordmann fir which stands in St George’s Hall which is hung with Chinese lanterns, fairy lights and colourful decorations

George’s IV’s mother Queen Charlotte famously decorated her home with yew, which used to be the traditional Christmas tree before fir trees were popularised by Prince Albert in the mid-19th century.

A memoir of Queen Charlotte, published in 1819, recalls how ‘in the middle of the room stood an immense tub with a yew-tree placed in it.’

It details how the branches were adorned with: ‘bunches of sweetmeats, almonds, and raisins, fruits and toys, most tastefully arranged, and the whole illuminated by small wax candles’.
