Special Christmas display at Windsor Castle
Visitors to Windsor Castle this Christmas will have a special treat, with a special Christmas display including a Christmas tree hung from the ceiling in the Octagon Dining Room.
This extremely strange choice of Christmas tree display was started by Prince Albert who had a Christmas tree hung in this style in the private apartments.
Visitors will also see the state dining room set for a Christmas dinner and a selection of gifts given by Victoria and Albert.
