King Charles and Camilla's Christmas Tree has been revealed, and fans are bowled over by the magnitude of the stunning fir tree in the royal castle.

In a post from the Royal Family and the Royal Collection, the grand Christmas tree at Windsor Castle was unveiled. The post on social media showed off the impressive 20 ft tree's impressive royal blue and rich purple decorations and the ornate angel that was perched ontop of the towering green tree.

The employees working on the tree needed to use a ladder in order to place enormous baubles and trinkets on the impressive tree that sparkled with the twinkling Christmas lights that were strung across the branches. 

"It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! At Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the decorations are up and ready for visitors to enjoy," read the caption of the post."From the spectacular 20-foot-high Nordmann Fir tree in St George’s Hall in Windsor, to a festive table in the Royal Dining Room at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh."

The stunning silverware that features in the selection of images posted by the Royal Family also featured a silver service presented to King George V and Queen Mary in 1935 to mark their Silver Jubilee. This was a sweet way that the royals honored tradition and remembered the royals of the past.

This is the first Christmas the Royal Family will mark since Her Majesty's passing. This did not escape the notice of royal fans who flooded to the comment section to discuss how much the Queen would have loved the festivities and how much she will be missed.

"Makes me think of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth! This would make her so happy! ❤️," said one commenter.

"This has to be one of the best parts of the job. It seems like this year is a little bittersweet. Looks incredible ❤️," said another.

Last year, the Queen's Christmas tree left royal fans confused with strange detail as fans noticed the peculiar placement of the decorations. The decorations the Queen used previously were in warm red and gold tones, and this year the color scheme was a much cooler blue and purple selection.

The ornaments and decorations may have changed, but the type of tree in Windsor Castle has remained the same. Like last year, a spectacular 20-foot-high Nordmann Fir tree has once again been selected as the monarch's choice of Christmas tree.
