  • The White House’s Christmas display was designed by First Lady Melania Trump inspired by the theme “Time-Honored Traditions.”
  • Windsor Castle, a historic castle and royal residence in Berkshire, is decorated to commemorate the 20th anniversary of restoring the castle after a fire.
  • The White House’s State Dining Room contains a 350-pound gingerbread White House.
  • Windsor Castle’s State Dining Room features silver-gilt pieces from the Grand Service (pieces that were commissioned by George IV in the early 1800s).

The holiday season is a festive time on both sides of the pond. Historic buildings where world leaders live and work transform into winter wonderlands full of tinsel, lights, and enormous Christmas trees.


US First Lady Melania Trump designed a Christmas display including ballerinas and wintery branches for the Trumps’ first holiday season in the White House, and the British royal family‘s Windsor Castle in Berkshire features a 20-foot Christmas tree and displays of antique silver dinnerware.

Here’s how the first family and the royal family decorate their respective residences for the holidays.
