Queen Elizabeth’s plans for Christmas could change course for the third time during her 68-year reign.
The trip that the royal family makes to the Sandringham estate to spend the Christmas holidays is in check and is that the containment measures to stop a new wave of contagion of the Covid-19 could reverse the plans of the British monarchy that every December 25 they go to religious service in the church of Santa María Magdalena.
Queen Elizabeth’s plans for Christmas
For Queen Elizabeth it would be a serious setback to see her plans to reunite the whole family for the first time altered after the confinement, during the months of the peak of contagion in the United Kingdom, kept them away.
So far, Buckingham Palace has already clarified that a decision has not been made regarding the trip “because it is still ready to do so.”
Some media reported that members of the royal family would miss the festivities this year and would stay in their own residences on Christmas Day.
As every year the members of the British royal family attend two religious services: one private and the other public, where a large group of people gather around the church of Santa María Magdalena to see the Queen, Prince Charles, with the Duchess of Cornwall or the Dukes of Cambridge and their children.
If this celebration is canceled, it would be the third time in the 68 year reign of the monarch that she does not attend Christmas mass with her family.
