A celebration of the Royal Family at Christmas, organized thematically and ranging from medieval times to the 20th century A Royal Christmas is a Christmas pudding of a book, full of silver threepenny pieces. Organized thematically, it covers such topics as Christmas and conflict in the 20th century, Christmas pastimes, festive feasts, Christmas and the Commonwealth, and many more, it looks at the many ways in which the Royal Family have celebrated Christmas through the ages. Jeremy Archer has delved into the royal archives to uncover the personal thoughts of many royals during the Christmas period. What comes over most strongly from Queen Victoria’s journals is the importance of family: the joys they shared, the trials they endured, and the carefully selected gifts they exchanged. Although there is much happiness, tragedy is a common bed-fellow, particularly in earlier times. And conflict is seldom very far away. But this is a celebration – both of an enduring festive season and an extraordinary family. The novel examines how Britain’s royal family have celebrated Christmas through the ages and the influence they have had on the way in which Christmas is celebrated in Great Britain and the Commonwealth. It includes extracts from the personal diaries, letters, and manuscripts of many royals, such as Queen Victoria and King George V, along with selectively illustrated pictures of royals at Christmastime.
