Queen Elizabeth To Spend Christmas At Windsor Amid COVID-19 Pandemic


LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and her husband Philip will celebrate Christmas at Windsor instead of their usual choice of Sandringham amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Buckingham Palace said on Tuesday.

“Having considered all the appropriate advice, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have decided that this year they will spend Christmas quietly in Windsor,” a spokesperson said in a statement.

Britain’s royal family normally spends the festive period in Sandringham in Norfolk, east England, but the usual Christmas Day church service there was considered unviable because it might attract crowds, according to a royal source.
