Queen Elizabeth 2nd to reunite family for Christmas at Sandringham


Queen Elizabeth II, 95, told the family that she is now “much better” and can host the traditional Christmas in Sandringham after her health scare, according to The Sun.

Sources told the British tabloid the monarch has reassured the family that she is on the mend and “looking forward” to the festive family reunion at her Norfolk estate.

Fears about the queen’s health have surfaced in recent weeks after the monarch was forced to give up a series of engagements due to a sprained back.

Following the advice of her doctors, she is resting at Windsor Castle after being injured for nearly two weeks. Last month, she spent a night in the hospital due to an unspecified condition.

This will be the Queen’s first Christmas after she lost her husband Prince Philip in April. They have been married for 73 years.

Sources said the Queen is due to travel to Sandringham on December 17th. According to The Mirror, she is likely to take a 50-minute helicopter ride from Windsor, but the traditional train journey from London to Kings Lynn has not yet been ruled out.

​Last year, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh spent Christmas alone at Windsor Castle due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Royal fans are eager to see the royals all together at Christmas Day service at St. Mary Magdalene, a 16th-century church on Sandringham’s estate.

The queen is “determined” to attend the service, along with the rest of the family, but will be taken to church to prevent her from walking the short distance.

Buckingham Palace said the Christmas plans were “a private matter”.
