Royal Family news latest – Queen buys SAME £6 Christmas present from Tesco for every member of staff each year

HER Majesty looks set to gift all 1,500 members of her staff the same present, following the tradition which was started by her grandfather George v.

The annual event sees the Queen present each member of staff with a Christmas pudding, though the tradition did not take place last year due to the pandemic.

The Royal Family website confirms this saying ‘all members of the household’ are given a ‘Christmas pudding’ by the Queen.

The statement says: “All members of The Royal Household will receive Christmas presents from The Queen, and Her Majesty will personally hand out presents to some members of The Royal Household at Buckingham Palace and at Windsor Castle.

“Continuing the tradition from her father, King George VI and her grandfather, George V – The Queen also gives Christmas puddings to her staff.

“About 1500 Christmas puddings paid for by The Queen (through the Privy Purse) are distributed to staff throughout the Palaces, staff in the Court Post Office and Palace police.

“Each pudding is accompanied by a greeting card.”
