The Royal Family have a number of well-loved Christmas traditions, such as a family dinner at Buckingham Palace the Tuesday before Christmas. Christmas presents are also opened in Christmas Eve, not Christmas Day, as it is a German tradition to do so. One thing that often stays the same is where they all choose to travel to Sandringham to celebrate Christmas. But where do the Royal Family celebrate New Year and it is together?
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip
The Queen spends every Christmas in Norfolk at her Sandringham estate, where they remain for New Year.
She chooses to travel by train to her estate with many Royal Family members joining her.
Other Royal Family members choose to join Sandringham after Christmas.
Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall
The heir to the throne also joins his mother every year and spends Christmas at Sandringham.
However, they then choose to head to the Scottish Highlands to celebrate New Year.
Located on the Balmoral estate is Birchall, often considered one of their favourite places to stay.
Kate Middleton and Prince William
The couple head to the Middleton’s for New Year after spending the day at Sandringham.
This often means spending time in Berkshire, with this year being the first for both Prince Louis as well as Pippa’s first child.
While Kate and William have alternated some years as to where they spend Christmas, it is suggested they will continue this way for the next few years with Sandringham remaining a Christmas affair.
This means they will most likely be seeing Kate’s parents for New Year this year.
The pair also spent their first New Year as a married couple in Scotland with Prince Charles.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
This year marks their first as a married couple with it being Meghan’s first Royal Christmas as the Duchess of Sussex.
Last year, the pair flew by British Airways to Monaco to see in the new year together.
This year however it is suggested the pair will remain in Sandringham with the rest of the Royal Family.
It will also be their last Christmas as just a couple with their first child due in spring 2019.
Meghan had previously travelled to Iceland to celebrate New Year before she met Prince Harry.
