Her Majesty's florists shared a step-by-step tutorial on how to make traditional Christmas wreaths

The video showed moss being fastened to the copper ring using the wire before groups of foliage and berries were carefully positioned on top and finished with oranges and a big red bow.

Fans took to the comments section to ask: "How did you make those little oranges??" and: "How did you dry the small oranges/tangerines?"

Another enquired: "Where do you get the moss? You make it look so easy." Luckily, many other followers answered their queries, telling them that a lot of the decorations could be bought at a garden centre.

No doubt Her Majesty has several gorgeous wreaths decorating the doors of her royal residences up and down the country.
