Queen 'far better' and will host Christmas at Sandringham

The Queen has told her family she is well enough to hold Christmas in Sandringham after recovering from a recent sprain, the reports mirrors.

Her Majesty, 95, assured them that she was “feeling far better” and “looking forward” to the traditional celebratory gathering on her Norfolk estate, which will be the first since the death of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh in April .

Concern for the queen’s health has grown in recent weeks after she pulled out of several major engagements.

However, the monarch was rested at Windsor Castle by medical order and spent a night in the hospital last month due to an unconfirmed condition.

The Queen is expected to travel to Sandringham on or about Friday 17th December.

Royal sources said it was likely she would take the 50-minute helicopter flight from Windsor, but suggested that a traditional trip by train from London to Kings Lynn could also be possible.

Her guests include the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children.

Their youngest son, the Earl of Wessex, his wife Sophie and their two children have also agreed to attend.

Princess Anne and her children Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall are also expected.

The invitation was sent to Princesses Beatrice, her husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi and their newborn daughter Sienna, as well as Princess Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank and their young son August.

Royal sources suggested that the scandalous Duke of York “apparently” had also been invited, but it was “very unlikely” that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would fly over from California with their two children despite their invitations.

A source said: “The Queen has been telling everyone that she has been feeling much better lately and is really looking forward to welcoming her for Christmas.

“Like many other families, this will be the first time Her Majesty can get together with her extended family after being kept apart for so long due to the coronavirus pandemic.”
