In fact, the Queen will not even remove her Christmas decorations until she leaves with Prince Philip more than a month after Christmas Day. The monarch ignores the superstition that it is bad luck to leave the Christmas decorations after the twelfth night of January 5. This is because the Queen stays at Sandringham until February 6 to commemorate the anniversary of her father's death.

The father of the queen, the king Jorge I SAW, died in Sandringham House the 6 of February of 1952 at the age of 56 years.

The then 25-year-old was on a trip to Kenya at that time and returned to the United Kingdom as Queen Elizabeth II.

A month later, in March 1952, the monarch revealed his sadness at the death of his father in a letter to his private secretary, Sir Eric Mievill.

The Queen said: "Everything seems so incredible still that my father is no longer here and it is only after it has been a while since one begins to realize how much we miss him".

"My mother and my sister have been wonderful, because they have lost so much, I have my own family to help me."

It is one of the many traditions that the Royal Family follows when they spend the festive period on the property of the Queen in Norfolk each year.

In another nod to her father, the queen continues her tradition by giving Christmas puddings to her staff every year in December.

Other royal festive traditions include opening their gifts on Christmas Eve.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and little Prince Louis, who was born in April, will open their gifts one day before December 24.

The royal family's website says: "On Christmas Eve, the royal family places their gifts on trestle tables and will exchange their gifts at tea time."

On December 25, the royal family attends the church of St. Mary Magdalene with a crowd of supporters who gather outside the church at Sandringham to see the royal family.

And the Queen and Felipe, who celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary on Tuesday, send around 750 Christmas cards each year, signed "Elizabeth R" and "Philip."

Philip, who retired from official royal duties in 2017, sends another 200 cards to different regiments and organizations close to him.
