Britain’s Queen Elizabeth cancels family Christmas dinner as Covid cases rise – archyde

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth canceled her traditional pre-Christmas family celebration next week as a precautionary measure as Covid-19 cases in the UK increase.

A Buckingham Palace source confirmed the decision to cancel the royal meeting as cases increase with an increase in the Omicron variant.

The decision is believed to have been a precautionary measure, with the source suggesting that it could jeopardize too many people’s Christmas arrangements if carried out.

The plans for next Tuesday’s Christmas dinner, which the 95-year-old monarch hosts each year for her extended family, were reportedly entirely at Windsor Castle.

Last year’s meeting was also canceled due to the Covid 19 crisis.

For most years, the Queen invites her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to Buckingham Palace before setting off on her annual Christmas visit to Sandringham.

The palace is currently undergoing major renovations.

The pre-Christmas celebration gives the UK Head of State the opportunity to meet relatives who cannot travel to Norfolk on Christmas Day.


Queen Elizabeth stands alone to finally say goodbye …

This Christmas marks the Queen’s first Christmas since the death of her husband, who was 73 years old, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The Queen and Philip spent Christmas Day 2020 together in Windsor without the rest of the family after spending most of the year in what is known as the HMS Bubble with a reduced number of staff.

She has been doing light chores since October 20, when concerns about her health increased after the royal doctors ordered her to rest and she spent a night in the hospital to undergo tests.
