Christmas Day Fashion Through the Years: Princess Anne


ITV still/ fair use

Royal Central is taking a look at the Royal Family’s Christmas Day Fashion throughout the years. In this article, the focus will be on Princess Anne, The Princess Royal. In the 1960s, the Royal Family spent the holidays at Windsor because The Queen’s children were young. In 1988, The Queen started to transition the holiday affair to Sandringham House in Norfolk, England instead of Windsor. Now, the family typically spends the Easter holiday on the Windsor grounds.
