Life at Sandringham over Christmas is ideal – State etiquette is completely abolished.
Life there is ideal because state etiquette is completely abolished. Princess Victoria spends her time driving and riding, while Queen Alexandra is busy looking after her dairy farm, gardens and dogs. Queen Maude of Norway is her mother’s favorite daughter and keeps the family highly amused all the time. Although long waists are out of fashion, Queen Maude, who is extremely proud of her slenderness, still cultivates the wasp figure. King George and Queen Mary have not decided whether to spend Christmas at Sandringham or Windsor castle. The Queen would prefer Windsor, but the King likes to spend his holidays with his mother and sisters. – Morning Press, 1913
