Now that Epiphany has passed, many families have taken down their Christmas trees. However, Queen Elizabeth’s tree will stay up until February 6 — for a very poignant reason.
The Queen is currently staying at her private Sandringham house in Norfolk, on the east coast of England. It’s her little hideaway from life at Buckingham palace — although, when we say little, it’s still enormous by most people’s standards, standing on a 22,000-acre estate. It also happens to be one of the few properties actually owned by the Queen herself and not the state.
