Queen Elizabeth II of the UK and her husband, Prince Philip, will spend Christmas this yr at Windsor Fortress in west London within the absence of different members of the royal household, a spokesman for Buckingham Palace advised the DPA on Friday.

In earlier years, a whole bunch of admirers gathered at Sandringham to greet members of the royal household as they traveled to the church constructed on the positioning to attend the Christmas service. In 2020, as a result of COVID-19 pandemic, this ritual was canceled, writes Agerpres.

No go to has been deliberate for this yr, a spokesman for Buckingham Palace stated. As an alternative of her conventional participation within the Sandringham spiritual service, Queen Elizabeth II attended a personal service in a chapel close to Windsor Fortress.

Prince Charles and his spouse, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, spent Christmas at their residence in Gloucestershire.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and his spouse, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, spent the vacation at Anmer Corridor, a Georgian mansion constructed 3 miles from the Sandringham Royal Property.
