The Queen will spend Christmas at Windsor Castle and not travel to Sandringham as usual.
Buckingham Palace has confirmed the decision, which Sky News believes is a personal one and was made after careful consideration.
Family members will be visiting Windsor over the holidays and reasonable arrangements will be made.
The Queen and her family usually go to a local church from Sandringham Estate in Norfolk on Christmas morning.
This Christmas is the Queen’s first since the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.
Your Majesty and Prince Philip spent Christmas Day together in Windsor last year without the rest of the family.
Last week it turned out that the Queen had decided cancel a traditional pre-Christmas lunch with other members of the royal family, amid fears of spiking Coronavirus Cases and the arrival of the Omicron variant.
The 95-year-old monarch hosts the event for her extended family every year, and the Windsor plans have reportedly been fully implemented.
The Queen generally invites her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to join her at Buckingham Palace before heading out on her annual Christmas stint in Sandringham.
The palace is currently undergoing major renovations.
Last year’s meeting was also because of the COVID-19 Crisis.
