Like any doting grandparent, Elizabeth II carves out time for the youngsters of the family to enjoy the celebrations, but she also takes time to worship both privately and with her family. It is a period of the year that is rather bittersweet for the sovereign, with happy memories of Christmases with her beloved father, George VI, at Sandringham. In fact she keeps up all the Christmas decorations until the anniversary of his death on February 6 has passed, after which she returns to London.
