As Brits take part in the American tradition of Halloween across the country, many people are wondering how our Royal Family will be spending the spooky weekend.
The ghoul, ghost and gremlin-filled day is known to be enjoyed by the younger generations of the royal family, including Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte.
But despite the spooky fun behind closed doors, none of the royal family celebrate Halloween publicly.
Believe it or not, the reason for The Firm’s seeming dismissal of Halloween isn’t because the Queen doesn’t like pumpkins – it actually goes all the way back to Queen Victoria.
Alexandrina Victoria, who ruled from 1837 to 1901, set a strict code of conduct that the Royal Family should constantly uphold total class and sophistication, according to royal expert Christina Reeves.
This means that the royal family should have complete self-respect and good behaviour when in front of the general public, which includes not dressing up for Halloween, Elite Daily reports.
Although, this hasn’t stopped some of the royals dressing up from time to time.

Queen Elizabeth has even sported a costume or two in her time, including when she dressed up for a performance of Cinderella at Windsor Castle in 1941.
But she has now given up the costumes since being crowned in 1952, so we won’t be seeing Her Majesty in a vampire outfit anytime soon.
In some royal costume controversy, Prince Harry infamously attended a costume party in London dressed in a Nazi uniform.

The Duke of Sussex received huge backlash from the decision and despite his apology for the poor choice of fancy dress, the Royal Family were not happy with the bad press that surrounded the incident.
This has very likely added to the Royal Family's lack of public facing Halloween celebrations.
In saying all that, it is widely known that members of the Royal Family do like Halloween – but they may just be carving their pumpkins in the privacy of their own home.
