Sandringham Estate is where the Queen typically spends Christmas with other members of the Royal Family. The British Royal Family acquired the estate in 1862, when it was purchased as a country home for Edward VII, then the Prince of Wales. It now belongs to Queen Elizabeth II who resides there for a few months a year.
The luxury estate also houses Anmer Hall, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s country retreat.
Other houses on the land include York Cottage, a beautiful country home gifted to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by the Queen.
Designed by A.J. Humbert, in the Jacobean Style, the house features brick walls, stone dressings and gabled roofs.
The Duke of Edinburgh took overall responsibility for its management over the years to help maintain the estate for future generations.
The walls are painted in a gorgeous mint green colour with panelling detailing throughout.
The ceiling also features detailing along with a large fireplace and decorative mirror above.
Large paintings fill the walls in both landscape and portrait along with decorative ornaments on the sideboard.
According to the Sandringham Estate Instagram account, the table in the room was owned by Queen Victoria and her son, King Edward VII brought it back from her resident on the Isle of Wight, Osbourne House.
The Instagram account also regularly shares snapshots of other rooms in the luxury home.
A photo of the cosy lounge known as The Saloon, is a room near the entrance of the home and sits across two floors with a balcony overlooking the seating area which has a large fireplace and many plants.
Previously used as a ballroom, the impressive room features wooden panelling and ornate columns as well as a large piano and a couple of seating areas.
On the back of the wall sits a large portrait of the entire Royal Family with a portrait of the Queen on the other side.
Other rooms in the home feature ornate furniture with panelling detailing.
Many of the rooms have high ceilings and large chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
Sandringham employs more than 200 people who work across a wide range of areas including maintaining the gardens.
Sharing a recent snap on their Instagram page, the Sandringham Estate revealed the grounds feature a large lake as well as an abundance of trees and shrubs.
Queen Alexandra’s nest was also pictured.
In 1913, a summerhouse called The Nest was built for Queen Alexandra on the rockery which overlooks the lake.
