Are you ready for it?
Every member of the royal family is weighed before and after Christmas dinner.
Although this seems like the very last thing we’d want to be doing after a day of festive feasting, the tradition apparently dates back to the early 1900’s when King Edward VII led the monarchy.
Because past kings and queens were quite the gluttons, ‘the weighing’ wasn’t some form of royal fat-shaming, but rather to ensure that everyone was thoroughly well fed.
As for some other strange royal traditions? It has been widely reported that the Royals open all their gifts on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas day, and because they’re all loaded they only exchange humorous gifts.
According to the Daily Star, Meghan gave the queen a singing hamster toy last year…it’ll be hard to top that!
