The Queen’s Christmas plans are further thrown off track after Princess Anne’s husband, Sir Timothy Laurence (66), tests positive for Covid. This means that the couple will not be able to attend Windsor.

  • Sir Timothy Laurence, Princess Anne’s husband has been diagnosed with Covid-19 
  • That means Her Majesty won’t be spending Christmas Day with her child. 
  • The virus is now under control for retired Royal Navy Vice Admiral (66 year old)
  • He spends his time at Gatcombe Park Estate, which he shares alongside the Princess Royal.
  • The Queen decided to spend her Christmas in Sandringham instead

Sir Timothy Laurence, Princess Anne’s husband has contracted Covid-19. This means Her Majesty will not be able to spend Christmas Day together with her daughter. 

MailOnline confirms that the 66 year-old former Royal Navy Vice Admiral has recovered from the virus.

His isolation at Gatcombe Park Estate where he lives with Princess Royal is evident.

This comes just a few days after Queen Elizabeth II announced she would not spend her Christmas at Sandringham due to the spread of the Omicom virus.

The monarch, 95, will instead remain at Windsor Castle where her closest family members will be there.

This will be the Queen’s first Christmas without Prince Phillip. She married him in November 1947 and he died at 99 in April.

The Queen decided to alter her plans, and she stayed in Windsor for the festivities this week.

It is understood he is isolating at the Gatcombe Park Estate he shares with the Princess Royal

His isolation at Gatcombe Park Estate where he lives with Princess Royal is understood to be his reason.

Buckingham Palace staff described the decision as personal and stated that it “reflects a precautionary approach”.

While Aides said that she would likely be joined by Royal Family members, she did not give any details about when and which of them.

This is the second consecutive year that Sandringham’s Queen’s Christmas visit has been cancelled by the pandemic.

The Queen announced last week that she will not continue with her extended family to Windsor Castle for Christmas lunch.

It was also done in an effort to address concerns regarding the possible spread of Covid’s new variant.

Due to her health issues, the Queen had the unfortunate decision to pull out of a variety of public events in autumn, such as the COP26 summit on climate change in Glasgow and Remembrance Day service.

For checks, she spent one night at London’s hospital.

Her Majesty recorded her Christmas message and will be broadcast that day.
