Buckingham Palace begins to prepare for Christmas, which is fast approaching. This year, the British royal family will experience special end-of-year celebrations since these are the first they will spend without Elizabeth II, who died last September. Charles III should, however, perpetuate one of the traditions dear to the late queen. According to ” DailyMail ”, Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the King and his wife Camilla will travel to Sandringham, Norfolk, surrounded by their extended family for the holiday season.

Back to Sandringham
For two years, the royal family has not visited this area because of the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, the festivities took place at Windsor Castle. Generally, they go to St Mary Magdalene Church in the morning and then have lunch around a turkey. Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children are among the guests. However, according to the “Mirror”, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should not be present when deciding to stay in the United States to celebrate Christmas with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
If King Charles III perpetuates the habits of spending the end of year celebrations at Sandringham, he has decided to abandon three Christmas traditions that Elisabeth II followed. The monarch would like the family meal to be “less formal” and the atmosphere to be “less stuffy”. The curtsy that members of the royal family must make could also be abolished. The royal family will also no longer be forced to watch their televised Christmas speech in advance. Charles III is also preparing to pre-record his very first speech as king. He will undoubtedly be able to pay homage to his late mother there.
