Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Christmas is a special, jolly time of the year that is celebrated in most countries, and the royal family is just like any other when it comes to the festive season - well, aside from the amount spent on gifts.
A former aide to the royal family has opened up about this time of the year in the royal residences. According to the source, the Queen splashes about $58 000 - which is more than R836 000 - on gifts for her staff and family.
Briefly.co.za learned the monarch allegedly buys 620 gifts - one for each of her workers and loved ones. This means the Queen spends about $93.54 (about R1 340) per gift. The source revealed that two weeks before Christmas, the Deputy Master of the Household would give instructions to the workers to go to a room in Buckingham Palace.
