For the Windsors, the holiday season is a big organization. Usually, the Royal Family of England gather in Sandringham to celebrate Christmas. On the program: opening of the presents (December 24) and the 25, everyone meets at the Sainte-Marie-Madeleine church to attend the traditional mass before meeting at the table for a hearty meal. But this year, the queen’s habits will be turned upside down due to the current health crisis.
And for good reason, gatherings must be limited in order to stop the spread of Covid-19. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said a maximum of three outbreaks could be found. Thus, Elizabeth II, currently confined to Windsor Castle, should (despite herself) review her table composition for Christmas so as not to be too surrounded. Because at 94, the Queen of England, as well as her husband (him aged 99) are vulnerable people. Especially since Prince Philip has recently been the victim of health problems.
Prince William’s family not present?
Kate Middleton, Prince William and their children could miss the festivities. And for good reason, as reported by a source to the Telegraph, whose words were reported by The Express, the doctors have informed the queen that it would be “unconscious” to invite them because the children rub shoulders with others. children at school. And could therefore be a carrier of the virus. Sad news for Elizabeth II who has not seen her grandchildren since the first confinement. However, for the moment, nothing is confirmed, and the queen is making “plans” to be able to find her family members. And this, even if the meetings are held in several times. Moreover, this year, the reunion could exceptionally take place at Buckingham Palace and not at Sandringham.
