The honor of placing the star on the royal tree
Like many households, the patriarch of the family, Prince Philip in this case, is given the royal duty of putting the start on top of the Christmas tree. He’s done it every year since his wife assumed the throne, and we’re guessing this tradition will continue until her death. Similar to her ex-Queen Elizabeth senior, Prince Philip will lose his royal status and duties upon the passing of the true monarch.
If you think that this silly tradition is something that Prince Philip will give up, you’re sorely mistaken. In fact, in illness or in health, he makes sure that he fulfills his royal duty as start-putter-on-top-of-tree-er every year. We wonder if gets paid for the job?
