From memory, I think Sandringham has about 90 bedrooms.

I don't think all the royals stay at Sandringham at Christmas.

That's quite a lot! Quite more than BP which has 53. Unless your counting staff bedrooms also?

BP has a lot more rooms I think, but they aren't in use. I remember seeing the Monarchy: The Royal Family at work and when guest came to stay they had to open up one of the suites.

It should also be remembered that large parts of BP are offices and staff quarters.

It is a big building, though none of the rooms appeared very big. In fact, even the dining room was not very large, so wonder how they manage to get the whole family around the table at christmas.

OMG, I love my dog; I can imagine the heartbreak by the Queen and her subjects who lost their pets. I hope the vets get to the bottom of this. My grandfather came from England and you don't get between an Englishman (or Englishwoman) and his or her dog or horse.

Ortiz,

thanks again for posting these great video snapshots of royal residences. The scenery around Sandringham is simply stunning. I can see why the royal family loves to go there at Christmas. Someday I must travel there and see it for myself.

In the 1970's, the Queen on the Duke of EdinB. advice had a 90 room wing/section of the mail house demolished!
Can you imagine how big the house was before that!

It is indeed a lovely property. Having visited a few years ago, I was surprised to note that the rooms in the house themselves are not very large at all - there are rather a lot of them, but they are all quite small.
