While some of us go for kitsch and others prefer classy, the royal family will only ever choose one style of Christmas decoration: classic.

And this year is no exception - the Buckingham Palace Christmas decorations for 2018 have been revealed.

The traditional decor was shared in a video posted by the royal family on social media.

Every Christmas, three trees are placed in the Marble Hall, as well as a garland dripping in colourful baubles along the grand staircase.

Man Makes Elaborate Castle at Work Desk for Christmas He has been designing displays for the past three years. It’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas at one man’s work desk. Jack Makepeace, 24, works as an engineer at Ibsecad in England, and this year, he wanted to create a winter wonderland at his desk. Makepeace’s design is a castle inspired by a honeymoon trip he took with his wife to the Ice Hotel in Sweden.

No family tree is cooler than that of the British royal family . Who wouldn’t want to be related to the ever-stylish Queen Elizabeth II? These powerful individuals have captured the world with their sophistication and grace, but that doesn’t mean they have evaded the spotlight of some juicy rumors.

Naturally, they're as resplendent as you'd hope, towering tall and decked out with hundreds of twinkly lights and regal decorations including mini velvet crowns and embroidered state carriages.

While the trees aren't erected by the royal family themselves, tradition dictates that they will add the final decorations.

Needless to say, many people expressed their love of the trees and decorations on social media, describing them as "fantastic," "spectacular," and "beautiful."

The Buckingham Palace trees come a week after Windsor Castle was decorated.

As beautiful as Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace look, the royal family will actually spend Christmas where they always do - at the Queen's residence in Sandringham.

War on Christmas? Vandals, thieves target festive displays.
Christmas decorations brighten up neighbourhoods across the nation this time of year – but apparently some people aren't happy to just enjoy the sights. A number of Christmas display enthusiasts have captured camera footage of people damaging or stealing the colourful ornaments. Charles Gluck, who lives on Sandhurst Boulevarde in Melbourne, told A Current Affair he "couldn't believe it" when he saw footage of a woman apparently stealing one of his prize decorations. The cameras appear to show a man and a woman walking past the house before the woman approaches a plastic snowman in the yard.
