The 23-year-old had to stand on a chair to hang baubles on the branches of the towering tree, which takes pride of place in front of the window at the family home. The tree has been adorned with white fairy lights, gold and red baubles, and a star on the top. "Balancing act," Marie-Chantal captioned the post, as her daughter balanced on one leg to position her bauble in the perfect spot.
