A complete breakdown of who the Queen gave a Christmas card to this year

Does she even send cards?

The Queen is well into the Christmas spirit as the decorations (and many, many trees) just went up in Kensington Palace.

The 2018 trees arrived yesterday in Marble Hall and they're very fancy altogether.

Of course, there's crown ornaments, as well as colourful baubles and little tiny carriages hanging on all of them. Cute.

While most people put up trees at Christmas, another thing many of us do is send cards to friends and loved ones... but does Queen Elizabeth?

Turns out, she does. In fact, she sends a lot.

According to The Royal Family website:

"Each year, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh send around 750 Christmas Cards, which will usually feature a family photo.

"The card is signed 'Elizabeth R' and 'Philip' and features their official cyphers. Family, friends, and Members of The Royal Household will likely be the recipients of The Royal Christmas Card, but British and Commonwealth Prime Ministers, Governor-General and High Commissions may also be sent one.

"The Duke of Edinburgh has a further 200 cards sent out at Christmas to different regiments and organisations close to him."

See? A lot... God love her trying to organise that list.
