Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have shared a peek inside their traditional Christmas decorations at Clarence House.
The heir to the throne, 73, and his wife Camilla, 74, gave a look at their gorgeous tree at their London residence after they were joined by Helen & Douglas House, a charity caring for terminally ill babies and children, along with the Roald Dahl Charity for ill children.
Camilla, who looked smart in a cream dress and black boots, helped the little ones dress the real Christmas tree with an assortment of red candy canes, baubles and miniature sweet decorations for the annual event.
Meanwhile a member of The Queen's Guards used his sword to attach a decoration to one of the higher branches of the tree.
Clarence House shared the heartwarming clip to their 1.5million Instagram followers to the Michael Bublé hit, It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas.
Captioning the snap, it read: "Thank you to the wonderful children from @helendouglashouse and @roalddahlcharity for your help decorating the Clarence House Christmas tree!
"The Duchess of Cornwall welcomed children supported by the charities to Clarence House today for the annual festive event. Guests were entertained by the Band of the Welsh Guards playing Christmas songs before being invited to help decorate the tree and enjoy some lunch.
"As an extra special surprise this year, the children were sent a special message from @CBeebiesHQ's Mr Tumble!
"The Duchess is Patron of @helendouglashouse and @roalddahlcharity, which support children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Wishing all involved a very Happy Christmas."
For 14 years, the royal couple have invited children with serious and life-shortening conditions to decorate the Christmas tree at their home.
The Duchess of Cornwall has been patron of Helen & Douglas House – the world’s first children’s hospice – since 2007.
The charity cares for terminally ill children and their families from Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties.
From medical to emotional support, the team helps families make the most of their time together with their poorly children.
Meanwhile as the omicron variant of coronavirus spreads across the UK, the Queen is reportedly still going ahead with her Christmas party plans.
According to a source, the 95 year old will be hosting an evening of wine, crackers and a festive dinner at Windsor before flying via helicopter to Sandringham Estate in Norfolk for Christmas Day itself.
As this will be the Monarch's first Christmas without her husband Prince Philip, who passed away in April at age 99, she is reportedly not letting anything get in the way of the celebrations.
Speaking of the Queen's Christmas plans, a source has revealed: “Currently it is going ahead, but obviously it will be under review right up until the last moment.”
