Channel 5 take a look at Christmas at Sandringham

Best on the Box choice for December 2nd…

We’re going inside the Royal family’s country estate and traditional Christmas HQ, to discover exactly how King Charles and the most famous family in Britain will be spending Christmas, whilst exploring the changes coming to the Royal residence at Sandringham.

Royal insiders give an hourly run-down of a yuletide schedule that’s timed with military precision and filled with royal tradition and quirks. A traditional German Christmas eve celebration first started by Prince Albert sees guests arrive in strict order of seniority, and pre-dinner drinks are on the stroke of 7.30pm. Then there’s the famous Christmas day walk to church that’s become a photo opportunity for the world’s press.

The palace chef reveals the huge number of ingredients required for their incredible Christmas day feast, the butler shows us the quirks of dining etiquette right down to how one must hold one’s napkin, and we reveal the multiple outfit changes required for each guest.

We recount the Royal Family’s historic but turbulent year leading up to this Christmas, from the explosive revelations in Harry’s memoirs, through to tensions between Prince Harry and Wills simmering behind the grandeur of the coronation in May, to a very public falling out between Charles and Andrew.

We also explore how the family dynamic has changed for the Royals at Christmas now King Charles is in charge and Camilla’s family are also now believed to be in attendance. Plus we explore the changes coming to Sandringham itself, with an alleged revamp as an incredible 10,000 plants are installed in the King’s new biodiverse topiary garden and rumours that Camilla’s sister will be modernising the place with a major makeover.
