The royals descend upon Sandringham during the festive period

The monarch usually remains at her country bolthole until early February when she marks the anniversary of her father King George VI's death and her own ascension to the throne.

Sandringham House was bought by Queen Victoria in 1862 for the Prince of Wales, who found the property too small and had a larger building commissioned.

The Grade II-listed building is Jacobethan in style, and has a ballroom, saloon and spacious dining room where the royals can enjoy their Christmas lunch.
