On Wednesday (1 December 2021), Princess Anne spent the day at Windsor Castle awarding MBE’s to a host of people for their amazing work across various sectors and charities.

A carousel of the ceremonies was uploaded on the official Royal Family Instagram and the Princess Royal could be seen honouring recipients. The caption read: “It’s been a busy few months at Windsor Castle, with hundreds of people being honoured at Investiture ceremonies in recognition of their incredible work.

Today we’re shining a spotlight on some of this week’s recipients who received their awards from The Princess Royal.”

Along with ceremony photos, many of the recipients were photographed standing in front of one of the Royal Christmas trees and it looks magnificent.

A traditional look, the gold and red decorations were super sparkly. Coming in all different shapes and sizes, stars, baubles, tassels and even gold flowers could be spotted.

Each year, there are always multiple trees at the Castle and this is the second one we've spied this year. An incredible 15-foot tree was put up in the Crimson Drawing Room on the 25th of November and it too was rather amazing.

Clearly a magical day all round, yesterday's MBE honourees included Dr Ibrar Majid MBE, who was the Lead Consultant Surgeon at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena Attack; Yvonne Lawson MBE, who founded the Goodwin Lawson Foundation in her son’s memory, which provides at-risk young people with an alternative path to a gang lifestyle; and Marina Cantacuzino MBE who founded The Forgiveness Project, which helps people who’ve experienced trauma to rebuild their lives.
