It’s widely known that the royals take the end of the year to rest and recuperate after their year of philanthropic pursuits and royal duties. Just because it’s supposed to be their downtime doesn’t mean that they have a completely open schedule, however. That’s especially true for Queen Elizabeth.
Her Majesty is a busy bee at Christmas. Sure, she’s at Sandringham with her family, but that doesn’t mean she’s free and clear. According to the Queen’s dresser and confidante, Angela Kelly, “The Queen is just as busy as she would be in London, with more guests to entertain.” Angela delves into more details of what the Queen’s Christmas looks like in her book The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, The Dresser, and the Wardrobe. During her discussion of what the holidays are like for the monarch, she revealed that the Queen undergoes a whopping seven wardrobe changes on Christmas Day. Clearly, we all need to step our holiday style up a notch.
