A troubled Christmas for the Royal Family?

Boris Johnson and the English government recently announced that family reunions will be allowed from December 23rd to 27th. However, due to the spread of Covid-19, gatherings must be limited. It is therefore a disrupted Christmas for the royal family.

Indeed, Queen Elizabeth II preferred to play the security card, and chose to spend the Christmas holidays at Buckingham Palace and not at Sandringham as usual. In addition, Prince Philip (99) and Queen Elizabeth II (94) are vulnerable people.

As reported by Rebecca English, Royal Correspondent for the Daily Mail, the Queen of England and her husband will not close the castle gates and “may see some family members”. However, she said: “It will be a rather lonely Christmas for the Queen and Prince Philip this year.

The couple understands that their family members may have competing demands,” she explains. As for Kate Middleton, it appears that she will be spending the holidays with her mother Carole Middleton and her husband and children, as indicated via the Instagram PartyPieces account on November 30.
