As royal families around Europe begin the Christmas countdown, all eyes are on Monaco where the recent return of Princess Charlene has been followed by yet more questions.

And there’s a look ahead to some of the most sparkling festive traditions enjoyed by royals across the continent.

Join Lydia Starbuck, Brittani Barger, Kristin Contino and Jess Ilse for a rather regal Christmas countdown.

You can find all our Royal Central podcasts on our Podbean page. All our episodes are also available via your usual podcast provider.
