THE Christmas decorations are up on the Royal Yacht Britannia, and they’ve been given the seal of approval by a very special guest.

The tree was donated by Balmoral estate and was specially selected by The Queen’s Forestry Foreman, Joe MacLuggash, who has worked there for over 25 years.

Marcel Le Corgi, who has a website and social media accounts dedicated to his adventures, was joined by three-year-olds Annabelle Kennedy, Cara Culshaw ­and Hamish Aitken for a tour of the boat to admire the new festive enhancements.
