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.

Europe's Most Expensive Christmas Tree Is Made of Gold and Valued at $2.6 Million

Europe's Most Expensive Christmas Tree Is Made of Gold and Valued at $2.6 Million This is not Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree. German Gold dealer Pro Aurum is touting it as Europe’s most expensive Christmas tree. It is made out of 2,018 gold coins, that all rest in slots on an acrylic tree. Atop the tree sits a larger gold coin star. The tree is valued at $2.3 million euros, or about $2.6 million. The dealer said it still could’ve been worth more, but gold’s value declined during the second half of this year. The tree will be on display at Pro Aurum’s Munich Goldhaus until Dec. 15. © Provided by CBS Interactive Inc.

The 15 foot tall trees are grown in Windsor and delivered to Buckingham Palace at the start of December.

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.

Early frost in New Brunswick causing shortage in Christmas trees.
The lack of growth means fewer sales for tree growers in hard hit areas . "You may not even by able to sell them because those trees need to recover for another season in order to be looking like a normal Christmas tree," says Redmond. This shortage has caused a buy-now mentality, and since Redmond’s farm was not affected, he’s slated to sell a record 1,400 trees this year "I have seen and upswing of people that have come out to the farm. So we are actually ahead of where we would have been last year with the total number of trees sold.
