Queen will spend ‘quiet’ Christmas at Windsor Castle! The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will forgo the traditional family Christmas at Sandringham to spend the period quietly at Windsor, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
In a bid to lead by example, the monarch, 94, will significantly scale down this year’s festive gathering to celebrate alone with the Duke, who turns 100 next June.
Royal sources suggested that at some point during the holiday, the couple might be joined briefly by others, including the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, for a socially distanced visit, possibly outside.
It will be the first Christmas in 33 years that the Queen has not spent at Sandringham, her Norfolk estate and the first since 1949, when they were in Malta, that the couple have spent Christmas alone.
In another break with tradition, the royals have decided not to attend church on Christmas Day in order to avoid crowds gathering.
The Queen and Duke are said to feel “fortunate” they have been able to enjoy annual festive gatherings with their family in the past but they are also aware that their children and grandchildren will this year have “competing demands on their time”. They are therefore content to enjoy the period quietly.
