- The Kensington Palace Christmas tree was unveiled this weekend, with the official Twitter account for Historic Royal Palaces revealing the decorative sparkler.
- Kensington Palace is famously inhabited by several important members of the royal family, including Kate Middleton and Prince William, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, and Princess Eugenie.
- 2018 marks Meghan and Harry’s last Christmas at Kensington Palace before they move to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, ahead of the birth of their first child.
Christmas has officially arrived with the unveiling of Kensington Palace’s gorgeous Christmas Tree. As the royal residence of Kate Middleton and Prince William, and newlyweds Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, it’s understandable that the location would be exquisitely decorated to help the royals celebrate Christmas.
As Meghan and Harry recently announced their plans to leave Kensington Palace, and move to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor in the new year, 2018 will be a special holiday season for the Duke and Duchess.
While their new residence will almost certainly be beautifully decorated next Christmas, it’s significant that Harry and Meghan will soon leave Nottingham Cottage, where they began married life. They’ll get to enjoy all of this majesty before they leave, though:
