Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden's Christmas trees at the Royal Palace
An array of Christmas trees arrived at the Royal Palace in Stockholm on Wednesday 18 December 2019, with an excited Prince Oscar joining his parents Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel to see them before they were decorated. There were several fir trees of all shapes and sizes, including one that was even smaller than the three-year-old prince.
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall
The Christmas tree at Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall's London residence, Clarence House, was decorated with the help of a group of children at Camilla's annual party to support Helen & Douglas House and Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.

The Queen's Christmas tree at Windsor Castle
The Queen kicked off proceedings on Friday 29 November in 2019, when her Windsor Castle residence was transformed for the festive season, with a huge 20ft Nordmann Fir tree installed in St. George's Hall. The impressive tree was sourced from the Windsor Great Park, and decorated by staff from Royal Collection Trust, who scaled ladders to hang the ornate red and gold baubles on its branches.
Her Majesty had a second Christmas tree in the Crimson Drawing Room at Windsor Castle. Although smaller than her tree in St. George's Hall, it still stood at a jaw-dropping 15ft and had been trimmed with beautiful crimson bows, baubles and stars in keeping with the room's colour scheme.
The State Dining Room, meanwhile, had been laid up for an incredible festive dinner party, with a gold colour scheme and towering arched centrepieces running down the middle of the table, along with gold candleabras and candlesticks.
The Swedish Royal Palace, Stockholm
The Swedish royal family trimmed trees outside the Royal Palace in Sweden at the beginning of December, and posted a photo on their official Instagram account, reading: "Happy first Advent! Today, the Christmas trees are lit at Logarden by the Royal Palace and light up in the December darkness."
Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit's Skaugum Estate, Norway
The beginning of December also prompted Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway to deck the halls at their residence, the Skaugum Estate. The decorations include some sentimental pieces to the couple, with candlesticks dating back to the 1920s, and pretty hearts hanging from red ribbon at the windows. "Christmas spirit has arrived at Skaugum, and the Christmas decorations are about to be put in place. Much of the decoration, such as the Christmas balls and the beautiful candlesticks, had Crown Princess Märtha with her from Sweden in the 1920s. And is anyone able to see who it is a picture of on the link with Norwegian flags? Good first Sunday in Advent!"
