Queen Charlotte in 1800

"The first known Christmas Tree was erected at Queen's Lodge, Windsor, by Queen Charlotte, the German born wife of George III, for a party she held on Christmas Day, 1800, for the children of the leading families in Windsor. "

Prince Albert popularized the tree with public. The royal family had enjoyed Christmas trees for many years before he married Queen Victoria.
