According to sources, the Royal Family will celebrate Christmas with the Queen on Tuesday, despite the Omicron Covid variant fears.

The monarch of 95 is pressing ahead with Windsor Castle’s event, where 50 to 60 relatives are expected, including Prince Charles or Camilla.

While three of her new grandkids, August, Lucas, and Siena, are likely to be there, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Archie, along with Lilibet, their baby girl, were born in this year. 

Also, Prince Phillip, the late husband of Queen Elizabeth II will not attend. This will mark her first Christmas without him since April 1999 when he was 99 years old.   

Last year, the Queen had to cancel her annual Christmas dinner at Buckingham Palace because of stricter regulations brought in by the Delta Covid strain.

However, attempts to cancel this event are being opposed. 

After the Christmas party with wine, crackers, and food, the Queen will take a helicopter flight to Sandringham in Norfolk. She will then spend Christmas.

Later, the Royal Family will join her on Christmas Eve. They’ll also gather there on December 25th as per tradition before going to St Mary Magdalene Church.

Sun quoted a source as saying: “Currently, it’s going forward. However, obviously it will still be under review until the very last minute.

The Queen is currently living at Windsor Castle. She continues on “light duties” following several health issues in the last week.

A source said: “It’s Windsor Castle, so it will not be difficult to socially distance yourself if necessary.”

“There’s no way that the Queen would allow anything to get in the way a family event such as this.

“Particularly after the past year that she had following losing her husband, and having to take on some light duty on doctors orders.

“It is likely that it will be the first time many relatives have been together since Philip’s funeral.

“But everyone must be responsible and things can change quickly but they are all ready for Tuesday.”

A crew from ITV recorded Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas Day speech several weeks back.     

The Mail reported last Wednesday that palace officials were looking into options for the monarch’s appearance in public, in order to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Buckingham Palace has released videos and photographs of the sovereign undertaking, but all meetings took place behind the palace walls.

We hope that Queen Elizabeth II will be able to attend a small public event on the grounds of the castle. 

She will be considered a small shot of joy in times difficult.

A source stated that it wouldn’t be normal Christmas but it would be like other families in the country.

Last seen by the public, Queen Elizabeth was at Windsor Castle on October 19. Next day she cancelled a Northern Ireland trip and was admitted to hospital the following night for unknown ‘preliminary testing’. 

The Cop26 Summit asked her to be restrained for several more weeks. She has since taken on a handful of lower-key tasks, such as recording a video message.
