Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, had a Christmas tree set    
up at Queen's Lodge, Windsor, in December of 1800.     
The tree was set up for a party Charlotte held on Christmas Day    
for the leading children of the leading families in Windsor.

Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, had a Christmas tree    
brought from Germany. Prince Albert sent decorated trees    
 to schools in Windsor and to local army barracks.    
In the December 1848 Illustrated London News, there was   
a picture of the Royal Family gathered around the Christmas tree.

On Christmas afternoon, the Royal Family watches Queen Elizabeth II's televised Christmas message to the nation. The tradition began in 1932 with her grandfather, George V. The King broadcasted his Christmas address via radio from a room in Sandringham.

In 1541 King Henry VIII had a law introduced which banned all sports on Christmas Day except for archery.
