King Charles and Queen Camilla recover from Coronation in Sandringham House

Since the Coronation celebrations, King Charles and Queen Camilla have been staying at Sandringham House in Norfolk. What is it like inside?

Sandringham House was the private country home of the late Queen Elizabeth. It is best known as the property where the royals spent Christmas.

Inside, Sandringham estate is “balmy” according to Prince Harry, but he gave an exception for the dining room.

In Spare, the Duke of Sussex wrote: “The dining room at Sandringham, for instance, was our version of Dante’s Inferno.

“Much of Sandringham was balmy, but the dining room was subtropical.”

Royal shooting parties have also used the Sandringham estate. King Edward VII, who enjoyed hunting, once commanded that the clocks be moved half an hour ahead of GMT to extend the amount of daylight available for hunting.

From 1901 to 1936, when the clocks were reset to GMT time by King Edward VIII, this was known as Sandringham time.

In an upcoming event, enthusiastic royalists will get a chance to visit Sandringham to dine with the head gardeners.]

However, there is a catch as it will cost royal fans £120.

The occasion is a part of Sandringham in Bloom, a brand-new nine-day flower festival that “celebrates all things flora and fauna” at the royal residence in Norfolk.

On June 7, the top gardeners from Buckingham Palace, Windsor Garden, Sandringham Estate, and Dumfries House will join guests at a four-course dinner.

The dinner, which will be served in Sandringham Restaurant, will include ingredients from each of the royal gardens.

This will include honey, rhubarb, and herbs, all of which are personally supervised and cared for by the King.

In addition to beer, whisky and estate gin in some of the meals, harpist Caroline Hall will provide musical accompaniment for the diners.

The news of the new festival coincides with the King and Queen’s ongoing recuperation at their estate in Norfolk following their Coronation weekend festivities.

According to the organisers, British seasonal flowers from a non-profit florist membership group that supports independent British flower producers across the nation will be used to decorate Sandringham’s interior.

A number of displays will be made with a variety of species, including wildflower mixtures, dahlias, zinnias, sunflowers, cosmos, and snapdragons.

A floral recreation of Queen Elizabeth II’s 1953 Coronation robe will be created as one of the displays in the house by 24 floral designers from Salisbury Cathedral as a tribute to the late monarch.

A blend of pampas grass, ruscus leaves, ferns and helichrysum will make up the delicate floral robe.

The festival’s “exclusive twilight garden tours” will also include a showing of the treasured watercolours of the recently crowned King.
